Scientific has published a white paper that discusses how the pharmaceutical
industry and safety regulators are putting more emphasis on the importance of
using external washers to remove particles from the outside of vials.
Many organizations today are
electing to install external vial washers in association with filling
applications involving powders, high potency liquids and freeze-dried materials
to minimize the risk of operator or end-user exposure to harmful products.
The white paper provides an informative introduction to financial and risk
avoidance justification factors that support implementation of external vial
washers in pharmaceutical product processing areas. Further information
is provided on sources of contamination in these processes and how they might
The authors also provide an unbiased discussion on desirable features for
external vial washers including features that protect vial caps from moisture
during the washing or product neutralization process, where high pressure
sprays are used to clean the base and side walls of a vial.
