About the Webinar:
The Lab Practices Committee and ISCT sponsored a work group to survey internationally to determine routine sanitization and cleaning practices currently in use. The survey asked questions regarding cleaning frequency by product and lab type, cleaners and materials used. Additional questions concern environmental monitoring, personnel practices, PPE and procedures for equipment cleaning.
There is a sizable publication gap in our industry regarding these subjects. It is the committee’s goal to create a published guidance based on these results and eventually present it to the FDA for review and hopefully obtain guidance from The Agency.
This webinar will discuss these survey results and outline practices regarding appropriate facility/equipment cleaning and sanitization involved in the manufacture and processing of cellular therapy products. We will also offer suggestions and provide best practices from the wide variety of facilities who responded to the survey.
The desire is to generate discussion within attending facilities to aid them in cleaning procedure improvement and to guide the industry as a whole on how to perform these important tasks more effectively.
