We provide a range of viable sampling services to the pharmaceutical sector, helping to ensure stringent product quality and safety standards essential to this industry.
Within this sector, facility owners need to carry out frequent clean room monitoring in production areas, often as part of their quality control procedures, to check for background contamination that may have found its way into the controlled environment. As well as ensuring appropriate levels of non-contamination, documentation of regular bio sampling may also be required as part of the product’s quality control history, potentially available for inspection by others in the supply chain and by external regulators.
Viable sampling therefore has to be regular, accurate, consistent and well documented. A failure in any one of these aspects can have a serious financial and reputational impact on the business, ranging from undetected contamination, to the need to destroy an entire batch of product, lost production time or even facility shutdown.
