Air & the Pharmaceutical Industry: 3 Important Facts to Remember
The public trusts the pharmaceutical industry to provide solutions and answers for their health challenges. With so many factors at play that determine how effectively you perform that task it’s easy to forget something.
If managing air quality in your facility is your responsibility, we’re making it easy for you. Look at these few important facts to plan for the future.
Remember Your Facility is Unique
You may stress about the fact that your facility is not managed the same as others. Relax.
Firstly, there’s no one set of rules you need to adhere to. The FDA didn’t create a general guideline yet and facilities differ so much. Depending on the type of work you do you may not have to implement the most stringent guidelines.
Assess your facility in your unique context and ask experts such as CDA Systems to help if you’re unsure how to proceed.
Different Areas Need Different Standards
You may have various activities on your premises and based on your assessment mentioned above you’ll see not all processes require high quality air. That means you don’t need one general solution, but an air quality monitoring system for each separate area.
It may take effort to implement but in the long run you’ll save money by not maintaining optimum levels across the board.
Audit Your Processes
One easy way to audit your facility and determine if you need to upgrade your equipment is to look at the flow of air throughout the premises. If you start with clean-room level air in one area, don’t assume that it stays that way. The moment this air flows into another chamber or room where there’s a lower quality of air, the air will be contaminated.
If you do need extremely clean air in certain areas of your facility, make sure a leak or faulty airflow doesn’t ruin it.
