Our client is able to confidently sterilize their laboratory equipment to ensure no harmful bacteria, fungus, viruses or spores are present on their items.

Business Challenge

A Beauty Cosmetic Client required two Autoclaves to be qualified for their Clinical and Microbiology R&D Laboratories. The project followed a complete autoclave validation lifecycle from cycle development studies to affirm sterilization parameters to performance of a PQ to ensure sterilization is achieved.

Our Approach

We conducted various meetings to outline the product matrix for each of the autoclaves. Once the product matrix was agreed upon by the Client, we then developed a Qualification Plan. This plan outlined the approach taken to qualify both autoclaves. A User Requirement Specification was developed to ensure all requirements were to be met during qualification. A Cycle Development Study was conducted in which the load configuration and cycle parameters were finalized. Biological Indicators and Chemical Integrators were used along with the calculation of F0, to ensure adequate steam sterilization. Upon completion of the Cycle Development Study a Performance Qualification was executed to provide formal documentation of the successful autoclave qualification.

Results Achieved

From inception to completion, the Brevitas team contributed to the success of the project by:

  • Developing a Qualification Plan
  • Developing a URS
  • Developing and Executing a Cycle Development Study
  • Developing and Executing a Performance Qualification
