Cleanroom Microbiology for the Non-Microbiologist

  January 20, 2018  

CfPIE - The Center for Professional Innovation & Education, Boston, MA USA
July 23 & 24, 2018

Course Description - Course runs 9:00 to 5:00 both days (Breakfast & Lunch Included)

This course provides comprehensive practical information on microbial contaminants and contamination control in modern cleanrooms. Extensive guidance is presented on the daily functions and monitoring necessary to maintain required cGMP microbial and particle cleanliness levels in cleanrooms.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Basics of microbial biology and physiology
  • Cleanroom design requirements
  • Sources of microbial contamination in cleanrooms
  • Non-viable airborne particle standards and monitoring
  • Airborne and surface microbial standards and monitoring
  • Origin and minimization of pyrogen contamination
  • Cleaning technologies and operations
  • Disinfection and sanitization materials and techniques
  • Rapid microbial monitoring methods
  • Training methods for proper contamination control

Emphasis is placed on attendees sharing information on their practical cleanroom knowledge and experiences with the group.

An extensive appendix providing tables, technical discussions, and scientific literature references is included with the course notes and is intended to provide background material for attendees wishing to go deeper into the subject of cleanroom microbiology.

Who Should Attend

This introductory course is designed for any person who wants to understand the basic methods used to minimize cleanroom microbiological contamination. The course does not assume any knowledge of microbiology by attendees. For those persons who are already working in cleanrooms, but unfamiliar with microbiology, the course will provide basic understanding of why certain procedures are used. Traditional microbial sampling and monitoring and the latest developments in doing these tasks are critically discussed and analyzed.
