5.6.1 Immediately after Completion of Filling operation, dismantle the silicone tubes and dip into disinfectant solution for 10 minutes and transfer to washing & sterilization area.
5.6.2 Allow the Silicone tubing in disinfectant solution for 10 minutes.
5.6.3 Remove the silicone tubing from disinfectant solution and dip in to another bucket having NaOH solution (pH 8.0 – 10.0) for 15 minutes and drain the disinfectant solution in drain.
5.6.4 After 15 minutes, drain the NaOH solution in drain trap followed by sanitization of drain as per respective SOP.
5.6.5 Cut the silicone tubes to make it unfit for further use and collect in poly bag and Send for further discarding with status label.
5.6.6 Machine Parts shall be dismantled and Media contact parts of machine shall be dipped immediately into disinfectant solution for 10 minutes and transfer to washing & sterilization area.
5.6.7 Non-contact parts of machine shall be transferred to washing & sterilization area and shall be dipped in disinfectant solution for 10 minutes.
5.6.8 Keep the Machine Parts in disinfectant solution for 10 minutes.
5.6.9 Remove the Machine parts from disinfectant solution and sanitize with 70% IPA.
5.6.10 Drain the remaining disinfectant solution through drain point followed by sanitization of drain point as per respective SOP.
5.6.11 Clean the Machine parts as per respective SOP for Cleaning. Collect the rinse and send to QC for pH, Conductivity, and Bioburden analysis.
5.6.12 Sterilization of machine parts shall be performed as per respective SOP.
5.6.13 Sterilization printout of autoclave shall be checked for accuracy of sterilization process.
5.6.14 Microbiologist shall be informed to collect the swab samples of sterilized machine parts.
5.6.15 For another 2 consecutive days cleaning and sterilization of machine parts shall be performed and autoclave printouts shall be verified for accuracy of sterilization process.
5.6.16 Remaining rubber bungs, Vials / Ampoules & flip off seals, three piece vials, plastic , plastic caps & shall be sent to washing & sterilization area and dip in disinfectant solution for 10 minutes and drain the disinfectant solution in drain point.
5.6.17 All primary packaging material shall be collected in a poly bag and sent to scrap yard for destruction.
5.7 CLEANING & SANITIZATION OF AREA:
5.7.1 Cleaning and Sanitization of Aseptic area, manufacturing area and washing & sterilization area shall be performed as per respective SOP.
5.7.2 Mounted parts of Equipment i.e. Platform of Filling and Sealing machine / Dynamic Pass Box / Autoclave surface inside and outside of aseptic area, Laminar Air Flow etc shall be cleaned with 70% IPA solution as per SOP twice.
5.7.3 After complete cleaning of area, Fogging shall be performed as per respective SOP.
5.7.4 After fogging, Microbiologist shall performed Microbiological environmental monitoring of area as per respective SOP.
5.7.5 Cleaning, fogging and Microbiological Monitoring of area shall be continued for consecutive three days in static condition.
5.8 Microbiological monitoring of drain point shall be performed for 3 days.
5.9 On the basis of 3 consecutive days CIP / SIP cycle of vessels & machine parts, cleaning and sanitization of area etc. and based on the 72 Hrs. (Third Day) microbiological observations of first day Settle Plate Exposure, production line shall be allowed for routine production activity.
