An examination of the causes of contamination and methods to mitigate risk

Contamination control efforts in cleanrooms and controlled environments tends to address eye-level or hand-operation levels. There is concentration on what is in front of personnel and what is seen at that eye or hand-level and environmental monitoring efforts reflect such. The range of the filling or packaging lines, and what is more easily cleaned, is given frequent consideration.

A major misunderstanding lies in believing that a routinely cleaned and maintained floor harbors no microbiological or particulate contaminants, or that contaminants at floor-level do not pose a risk to the product. Floor-level contaminations and its causes cannot be neglected; it cannot be the forgotten or least considered area of concern.

This presentation examines the root causes of contamination and explores the various methods for reducing the risk of contamination through control and mitigation.
