USP 797 guidelines and compliance are a top priority for sterile compounding pharmacies. The goal of being compliant with USP 797 is to maintain and ensure a clean environment while compounding pharmaceuticals. This is done by wearing non-shedding, lint free cleanroom apparel over your clothes as well as lint-free cleaning products. This is done to ensure no loose particles come off your clothes or cleaning products into the products being manufactured. Cleanroom Connection is the leader in helping pharmacies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and hospitals become compliant with USP 797.
USP 797 PPE and Cleaning Supplies
The first step in being USP 797 compliant is having the proper standard operating procedure and a certified cleanroom or hood to prepare your pharmaceuticals. Once you are confident that your procedures are compliant the next step is to use compliant cleanroom products. Cleanroom Connection recommends wearing sterile, clean-processed one-piece coveralls with attached hood and boots. This ensures there is no skin showing at your neck or ankles. These are the two critical areas where not gowning up properly can jeopardize your cleanliness. By wearing the sterile bunny suit with hood and boots you ensure these two skin areas are fully covered.
Many people who work in clean rooms are not aware that a key source of contaminants is the actual cleaning supplies they use. When you are cleaning your clean room, you must use non-shedding lint-free wipes and mops. These are two products that can easily contaminate your controlled environment. Cleanroom Connection is the best source for 100% non-shedding wipes and mop covers for USP 797 compliance.
