Managing bioburden in GMP and non-GMP regulated environments, effectively and efficiently

Reducing the risk of contamination by bioquelling

Life Sciences is a broad term which covers many disciplines, however is in effect all research and development in the areas of disease identification, detection and prevention.  Whether researching on disease causing agents, developing new therapies, scaling up or scaling out of processes or manufacturing batches of product, it is critical to follow safe procedures throughout.  Working with aseptic conditions can be vital to operator or patient safety and utilising a bioquelled process is often the safest solution.

With a range of products and services that ensure the smallest isolator or the largest of cleanrooms have minimal or no contamination, research into disease causing agents can be carried out securely, production of biological therapies can continue without risk and our customers can avoid losses and delays caused by bio-burden.  Of course when a contamination is discovered a rapid response is required and a bioquelling process will reset levels to zero quickly and with assured results, however surely it would be better to routinely manage the bio-burden so as not to allow colony counts to increase in the first place.  Preventative bioquelling can thus be more effective in minimising downtimes.

The life sciences market has many challenges in both the R&D pipeline and manufacturing, maintaining aseptic conditions or reducing bioburden often the case.  In particular, bioquelling to achieve these goals is important in key application areas such as cell & gene therapy, sterility testing, compounding and decontaminating equipment or environments. 

Whether you are involved in academic research, the pharma or biopharma industry, or working in a pharmacy environment, bioquelling will give you faster, more efficient bio-decontamination.

Bioquell has a long history in the Life Sciences and has applications across a range of markets.  Whether you work in fundamental research or pharmaceutical production, it is likely that you or one of your counterparts uses a bioquelling process for improved bio-security to mitigate potential issues or for maintaining a higher level of uptime to enhance productivity.  Whether you are regulated to cGMP manufacturing, protecting employees from high risk pathogens or testing the sterility of products for batch release, Bioquell can provide an environment in which your methods and applications are secure. We have characterised our customer markets as per the links below, read on for more information on how we apply bioquelling in these areas:

Why bioquelling makes sense

Why bioquelling makes sense

Why bioquelling makes sense

Increase productivity

Increase productivity of your aseptic manufacturing process by bioquelling in shutdown periods and get back up and running sooner rather than later. Some customers have saved up to 7 days compared to manual cleaning regimes.

Reduce costs

Reduce costs of moving materials into cleanrooms. Comparisons to alcohol spray and wipe processes are clear – reduced labour hours and reduced chemical costs mean bioquelling is cost effective as well as efficacious.

Mitigate risks

Mitigate risks in your process by using a bioquelled process to keep colony counts down. Why wait until you have a problem with environmental monitoring – strike first and make sure your cleanrooms stay clean.
