5 Major Differences between RO and EDI Water Systems

Water is the heart of the human body, 50-65 % on average, although when looking at infants the percentage is typically around 75-78%. Water intake is mostly recommended since most body processes require it to facilitate optimal body functioning. Hard water contains much of dissolved minerals and the process of water purification comes from understanding the difference between RO and EDI water fil…

Calibration Frequency of Instruments and Other Measuring Devices

Calibration of instruments and other measuring devices is done to verify its performance. It is a comparison of the reading found from the instrument or measuring device and the known value or reference standard. The difference between the measured value and standard value helps to determine the instrument performance.

Data Integrity - A Major Problem in Pharmaceuticals

It's a giant task to ensure that all your computer systems comply with data integrity regulations and guidelines. There are also costs involved.

We are receiving a lot of queries from pharmaceutical professionals that they have a lot of contamination in the classified areas. Contamination exceeds grade limits and they have tried everything but unable to get rid of it. Here we shall discuss the effective ways to remove the contamination from the classified areas.

Importance of Microbiological Analysis in Cleaning Method Validation

Cleaning Method validation is the process in which documentation of how the cleaning process of manufacturing equipment is done. Most times during manufacturing and processing of pharmaceutical products, active residues are left on the equipment and it may cause contamination of the next product to be processed in the same equipment.

Common Ways to Avoid the Most Frequent GMP Errors

Most of the 483s and warning letters are issued because of the common GMP errors. Below I have described common mistakes (and ways to avoid them) that I have seen and that many managers, supervisors, and executives have told me they have seen. Many common good manufacturing practice errors in pharmaceuticals can be easily avoided by following a few simple rules.
