New White Paper Helps Medical Device Manufacturers Validate Cleaning Processes
Date:6/7/2011

AGAWAM, Mass., June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A free white paper that guides manufacturers of medical devices in the validation of their cleaning processes is available from Microtest Laboratories. It is available to download from http://microtestlabs.com/cleaning-validation-paper.

As many medical devices are made of high-tech materials such as metallic alloys or synthetic plastics, manufacturers may require the use of various agents to aid in the manufacturing process, or produce contaminants that need to be removed. Thus, these products must be cleaned to ensure both patient safety and the continuing functionality of the device.

In the white paper titled, "Five Steps to Validating the Cleaning Process of Medical Devices," Patrick Kenny, Manager of Analytical Services at Microtest Laboratories, reviews medical device regulation under 21 CFR Part 820 – Quality System Regulation.

Several sections of Part 820 can be directly related to medical device cleanliness. For manufacturers, the challenge is to validate the cleaning process to ensure the devices are free of residue (chemical and particulate) in order to ensure patients are safe.

In the paper, Kenny presents a five-step process that provides a framework to assist manufacturers of medical devices in their cleaning validation efforts:

  • #1: Evaluate the Process, Determine the Potential Contaminants
  • #2: Determine the Limits
  • #3: Identify the Analytical Test
  • #4: Validate the Method for Use
  • #5: Validate the Cleaning Process

At Microtest Labs, Kenny leads the services group performing medical device and pharmaceutical analytical testing. He holds a M.S. degree in Chemistry and has spent the past 13 years working in QC, R&D and manufacturing laboratories.
