This webinar on Disinfectant Qualification Studies will teach you disinfectant testing methodologies, provide examples of disinfectant efficacy tests and show how to troubleshoot problems related to disinfectant efficacy testing.
Disinfectant Qualification Studies, Disinfectant Validation, Regulatory requirements for disinfectants
Disinfectant Qualification is an enormous undertaking for any company. If not planned and executed well; it may lead to results that can be erroneous. Learn from an expert who can share the various mistakes that can occur during this study, leading to unnecessary costs, leaving you with data that cannot be used.
This seminar will discuss all the technical details you need to know about the Disinfectant Qualification Study. The speaker will step by step walk you through the study's technical details and will advice on how to avoid errors. The speaker will also teach data review and how to evaluate log reductions. Using the nature of disinfectants how to pinpoint gross errors and technical glitches that could have occurred during execution of the study. Finally how to use the data generated by this study for routine clean room cleaning operations.
