Solutions to control and minimize microbiological contamination in pharmaceutical processing and environment.
Water-borne microorganisms are ubiquitous and varied in their ability to survive and grow under different conditions. Therefore, an out-of-control water system can cause harm to the patient or adulterate pharmaceutical products. Purification of water is required to prevent interaction with drug substances or other ingredients in the product formulation. Water must also be microbiologically controlled and monitored.
While most well-designed water systems can be maintained in a state of control, microbiological problems can develop. Microbial adherence is a consequence of the balance of attractive and repulsive physicochemical interactions between bacteria the surface. The primary issue is biofilm formation—slime-like microbiological communities that occur when microorganisms adhere to a surface.
Eta Purification understands that pharmaceutical facilities are confronted with several challenges on a day-to-day basis with different phases of water generation, storage and distribution.
