Life Sciences

Analytically clean surfaces are not only required for laboratory glassware cleaning. They are also essential in pharmaceutical production and the cosmetics industry, as well as other sectors.

 

Take advantage of our expertise in residue-free cleaning and let us advise you on the development of cleaning processes: after analysing your cleaning task, we develop a solution based on proven processes and our deconex® products. This demonstrably improves process reliability and makes processes more economical.

Laboratory

The variety of contamination in laboratory glassware places high demands on cleaners and cleaning processes. Only robust and reliable cleaning results reduce the risk of errors in laboratory work. Furthermore, a cleaner must not leave any residue behind.


Ultimately, the laboratory glassware should be perfectly clean before each new use. We offer our customers high cleaning performance in processes that are gentle on materials.

Manual laboratory glassware cleaning

Our specially formulated cleaners compensate for low application temperatures and a lack of mechanical assistance. They are designed for this specific field of application, are easy to rinse off, can be used widely and deliver perfect, residue-free results when used correctly.

Validated cleaning

The latest regulations require the prevention of cross-contamination and extensive process knowledge. We share our expertise with our customers and ensure first-class results through situation-specific solutions.

Residue-free cleaning is the key factor for successful cleaning validation. Our decades of experience are based on a multitude of proven and validated applications. We understand your challenges and offer excellent solutions for even the most difficult residues with our products, processes, comprehensive documentation and range of services. These comply with the latest GMP requirements and result in a high level of process reliability.

Our efficient solutions are also economically appealing: they significantly reduce downtimes and increase productivity.

Ingredient production

Ingredient production (API/HPAPI)

The wide range of organic chemical residues is often stubborn and presents a challenge to effective cleaning. Our water-based cleaning processes can replace the time-consuming dissolving of residues with organic solvents and reduce downtime. They also make an important contribution to occupational safety.

Pharmaceutical production

Pharmaceutical production

The removal of active ingredients and excipients in the production of solid, semi-solid and liquid medicinal products requires customised cleaning since the residues can be cleaned off to varying degrees. In developing our effective cleaning processes, we have therefore also taken into account the physical-chemical nature of worst-case residues.

Biotechnology

Biotechnology

Typical residues from biotechnological production are often complex, organic mixtures. Cleaning bioreactors and other production equipment therefore represents a particular challenge. Undesirable proteins, for example, are those that can lead to cross-contamination. Our cleaning processes avoid residues so that the sensitive cell growth is not disturbed.

Cosmetics industry

Cosmetics industry

Enormous demands and complex residues require optimised cleaning processes. Cleaning but also long rinsing phases often take a lot of time. We support our customers in the optimisation of their processes and thereby help to save time and resources, increasing productivity. The result is surfaces that are clean and without residue.

Value conservation

Regular maintenance protects and maintains the value of production facilities. The risk of longer production interruptions due to extensive maintenance work is reduced and economic efficiency is increased. The surfaces in contact with the product also remain in a defined state and thus meet the regulatory requirements.

Integrate our proven procedures as a recommended course of action in risk assessments. And rely on comprehensive documentation on the products as well as work instructions for practical implementation.

Derouging before/after picture

Initial cleaning

After installation and before the first commissioning of new production facilities, a basic clean effectively removes residues left over from manufacturing and installation. The subsequent passivation leads to a defined condition of the surfaces and a system ready for operation.

Derouging

Rouging is based on a disturbance of the passive layer of stainless steel surfaces and is not acceptable for safe processes. The surfaces are neither visually clean nor in a defined state, there is a risk of migration of foreign particles and corrosion can occur. Our deconex® DEROUGE systems remove rouge easily, quickly and safely.

Passivation

The processes we have developed strengthen or renew the spontaneously formed passive layer on stainless steel surfaces. Routine passivation maintains surfaces in a defined state, increases the service life of equipment and reduces the risk of interrupted production. Analyses show superior efficacy compared to traditional methods.

Work instructions for processes

Use our guidance and checklists on processes and document all procedures in the area of value conservation. Comprehensive documentation ensures that you can also use our derouging procedures easily and safely yourself: DIY - derouge-it-yourself!

Process development

Leave nothing to chance when it comes to GMP cleaning! We develop process proposals for our customers which are geared towards a medicinal product's lifecycle and which take into account critical control and quality attributes in line with Quality by Design (QbD). Only the combination of a specific method with the correct choice of cleaner results in effective and residue-free cleaning. The deconex® CLEAN study is an elementary building block of the rationale for critical cleaning processes.

Advice

Advice is one of our core areas of expertise. Take advantage of our application engineers' many years of experience - by telephone or at your premises. Our experts specifically tailor the development or optimisation of a process to the equipment used and the properties of the residues, developing effective and economical solutions that result in residue-free surfaces and increased productivity through short downtimes. Customised work instructions as well as comprehensive documentation of our products and complementary services simplify the steps towards the definition of successful cleaning.
