Branching Out

The concept of hiring contract partners to undertake specific roles and responsibilities can seem rather daunting at first – there may be concerns about loss of control or interrupted workflows when work is conducted outside the central core of the business. However, when executed well, outsourcing can lead to more control and smoother processes thanks to the specialist knowledge and flexibility offered by independent experts.

Take, for instance, the use of third-party logistics providers (3PLs) such as GEFCO Forwarding, Brink’s Life Sciences and DHL Global Forwarding. Without them, manufacturers would be faced with the enormous task of sourcing, maintaining and managing an entire fleet of vehicles or warehousing functions before they could even consider shipping their first product. This is clearly neither viable nor cost-effective, and so hiring another firm that specialises in the actual transportation of goods is the most logical solution.

Cleaning Validation: What do you need to consider to ensure a successful outcome?

RSSL

Cross contamination must be avoided in the Pharmaceutical industry at all costs and successful cleaning validation ensures that patients are not put at risk due to cross contamination. The process can be divided into a number of sections each of which must be fully understood and areas of concern addressed to ensure a successful outcome across the entire process. This spans both the manufacturing and subsequent analytical and microbological support. The data used to confirm a positive/successful cleaning validation is underpinned by the results of validated analytical methods. It is essential that these results are truly representative as patient safety is based upon the absence of equipment residues. So what are those areas of concern, what affects your ability to get a successful outcome and what do you need to consider when carrying out a Cleaning Validation exercise?
