Cleaning Validation Services

Mérieux NutriSciences offers comprehensive cleaning validation services for the food & healthcare industries to ensure effective hygiene across manufacturing processes.

Cleaning validation is a method that validates cleaning procedures. This methodology ensures the effectiveness and uniformity of a specific cleaning process in plants and equipment to remove residues and contaminants.

Reaching predefined levels of hygiene on product contact surfaces has become a priority in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and food industries as manufacturers need to ensure the safety of their patients and consumers.

Effective cleaning is necessary to achieve suitable hygiene conditions in any production environment. Insufficient or ineffective cleaning can cause product contamination that may originate from different risk factors such as:

  • Physical contamination from deposits and food residues
  • Biological contamination from bacteria and other microorganisms
  • Allergenic cross-contamination of proteins in the food chain
  • Chemical contamination from residues of detergents and disinfectants that are still present after insufficient rinsing.

Contamination risks are present across whole manufacturing operations, and validating the efficacy of cleaning processes helps manufacturers minimize hazards and ensure their products are safe and meet current regulations.
