Considerations for Effective Cleaning-in-Place Systems

With the exception of the simplest equipment, most modern manufacturing systems, particularly those that comprise pipes, enclosed spaces, and small apertures, are cleaned with minimal operator intervention, and without the need for dismantling or opening – a technique known as cleaning-in-place or clean-in-place (CIP).

CIP has been around since the 1950s and can be defined as a method of automated cleaning of the interior surfaces of equipment, without major disassembly. CIP is often described as being concerned with the removal of soil, where soil is defined as anything that should not be present in a clean vessel – from visible residues, scale, and foreign bodies to invisible bacteria, yeast spores, or even viruses. Another common definition of CIP describes it as: “The cleaning of complete items of plant or pipeline circuits without dismantling or opening of the equipment, and with little or no manual involvement on the part of the operator.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link. How can the pharmaceutical shipper ensure the security of the supply chain over thousands of miles and extended periods of time when the product is no longer in his possession?
