Monitoring a Validated Cleaning Process

Destin A. LeBlanc Cleaning Validation Technologies, Technical Consulting Services In discussing monitoring for cleaning validation, it is important to carefully define what o­ne means by “monitoring”. As used here, the term “monitoring” refers to the routine measurements taken o­n the cleaning process that serve as indicators of whether the process is in a state of control (or considered from the opposite point of view, serve as indicators that the process either is not or may not be in a state of control). The purpose of monitoring is not to have clear evidence that the surfaces are acceptably clean. To do that, o­ne would have to sample the surfaces (much as o­ne would do in a cleaning validation protocol).
