Pharmaceutical Production Environments

Pharmaceutical Production Environments

Every pharmaceutical company requires Pharmaceutical Production Environments to safeguard their products, people and processes for which they produce compliant and safe products for their consumers. By incorporating plant and chemical-based compounds, pharmaceutical companies make pharmaceutical drugs that can cure diseases, treat diseases and protect us from infection. Many Pharmaceutical companies also produce animal health products, livestock feed supplements, vitamins and many other products.

The term “cure” means that, after medical treatment, the patient no longer has that particular condition anymore. Some diseases can be cured. Others, like hepatitis B, have no cure. The person will always have the condition, but medical treatments can help to manage the disease.

Aseptic Cleanroom Facilities for the production and packaging of pharmaceutical products

Pharmaceutical production and packaging is commonly executed in a modular cleanroom facility. These controlled cleanroom environments eliminate sub-micron airborne contamination and particulate. These contaminants are generated by people, process, facilities and equipment. Modular cleanroom environments make for an aseptic environment by the choice of construction materials, and the pre-construction of the modular rooms.

The configuration of a pharmaceutical modular cleanroom can be configured to exact specifications and interior spaces can be customized and/or expanded as needed to provide more or less space for an individual work station or room. The organization of the modular walls systems permits the preparation of individual prescriptions in the most efficient, cost effective, as well as sterile manner possible.

The only way to control contamination is to control the total environment. Air flow rates and direction, temperature, pressurization, humidity and special filtration all need to be precisely controlled to create an aseptic optimal production environment for high quality pharmacy production. Cleanrooms are planned and manufactured using strict protocol and methods. Combined with various air filtration options, a class 10,000 positive pressure can be consistently achieved.

The behaviors and cleanliness of cleanroom operators is pertinent to a successful high performance cleanroom. Proper gowning, strict entry processes and cleaning methods should ensure a clean operating environment.

The majority of pharmaceutical companies are headquartered in the United States. Diversified companies — for instance, Johnson & Johnson, Abbott Laboratories and Wyeth — maintain other health care-related businesses, such as consumer health product divisions and medical device companies. Nondiversified companies, such as Eli Lilly and Merck, focus solely on the development and sale of drugs.
