Event Overview:

Cleaning in the biotechnology industry is often carried out using chemicals such as sodium hydroxide, chlorine bleach or citric acid. Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of using these commodity cleaning products is essential for bioprocessing facility operators.

In this webinar, learn about certain aspects and crucial issues relating to cleaning in the biotechnology industry. Case studies will address the cleaning of fermentation residues and processing aids like silicon defoamers to illustrate the difference between commodity cleaning chemicals and blended detergents.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Identify differences between commodities and blended detergents
  • Know why a cleaning process development program is needed in the biotechnology industry
  • Provide justification for effective cleaning agent selection
  • Address cleaning validation considerations in the biotechnology industry
