The effective cleaning and disinfection of equipment and critical surfaces is extremely important in order to prevent the contamination of pharmaceutical products during their processing, manufacturing, and packaging.
Failure to properly clean and disinfect surfaces can lead to the contamination of pharmaceutical products with microorganisms that can compromise product quality, reduce shelf life, and/or threaten the health of the consumer or patient. It is also important to control potential bioburden hazards that may exist during the manufacturing process.
When used as an adjunct to effective surface cleaning, Altapure can help your facility maximize food safety, by offering many defining benefits:
Third-Party research proven results:
- Fast treatment time.
- Gas-Like Interaction / 3-D Contact With Complex Surface Geometries.
- Safe - only 0.88 % H2O2 and 0.18 % PAA (Yes, the hydrogen peroxide is that low).
- “Extremely thin film” deposition with sub-micron droplet performance.
- Multi Room Capable - Able to treat connected areas & rooms at same time.
- Complete Coverage Accuracy (no human interaction).
- Complete Coverage Reproducibility (no human interaction).
- Fully automated & remotely controlled process.
- Easily moved and setup by only one (1) individual.
- Wireless control and data reporting to PC.
With a very low “D-Value” data for the gold standard medical grade spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus of 2.3 – 2.6 D-Value (meaning a 90% kill within only 2.3 to 2.6 minutes of treatment), it won't take long to high level disinfect surfaces, including complex surface geometries, even in large process areas. Altapure's system is easily scalable for any application or treatment area, both large or small.
Altapure's submicron sized droplets provide a gas-like diffusion of the treatment agent throughout the room, where the PAA agent is deposited as an “extremely thin film” on all surfaces.
The result is a touch free / no touch, high level disinfection system that is able to deliver “no growth cultures ™” on ALL treated surfaces, even in large rooms, for bacteria such as but not limited to: Geobacillus stearothermophilus (ATCC # 12980), Bacillus atrophaeus (ATCC # 9372), Clostridium difficile (D-diff), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Acinetobacter baumanii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, as well as viruses such as but not limited to, Polio virus, as shown in the third-party studies attached hereto*.
Altapure - Built For The Pharmaceutical Industry
Altapure's equipment is designed to meet all stringent United States regulatory standards for use in agriculture and food production. Internal components are made of food grade compliant polymers and 316 stainless steel; the deployed liquid is only in contact with food grade compliant polymers and 316 stainless steel. Only the highest quality materials for construction are used, and none of the liquid contact components are coated or painted.
Exterior materials of Altapure products are constructed from food grade compliant polymers and 316 stainless steel. Materials are compliant with FDA material requirements for use in manufacturing and processing facilities regulated by the FDA.
Pharmaceutical Disinfection Applications
The Altapure system can be used to high level disinfect areas such as, but not limited to: process tubing, piping, process vessels, packaging lines, HVAC ducts or conduit, bottling lines, processing lines, processing equipment, bottling equipment, packaging equipment, storage areas, refrigerated storage areas, storage bins, packaging materials, airlocks, pass-throughs, pipes, basically anywhere where surface and/or airborne contamination risks, and/or bioburden concerns, are present.
By using Altapure's products and processes, businesses and researchers can increase the efficacy of their cleaning activities, reduce their legal risks, and lower their costs.
