Pharmaceutical Air Testing Service- Pharmaceutical Compressed Air Testing
Pharmaceutical compressed air testing includes Direct Product Contact, Indirect Product Contact, United States Pharmacopeia (USP), the European Pharmacopeia, or the ISO 8573 compressed air standard.
In the absence of specified standards governing compressed air quality testing in the pharmaceutical manufacturing process, it is often best to use site-specific air testing programs for Points of Use (POU). This may be the most assured way to produce valid, repeatable testing results that will reinforce your siteâ€™s quality. TRI recommends a compressed air baseline test before validation. The air used in the manufacturing processes should be evaluated by a competent technical individual to determine the appropriate requirements to protect the safety of the employees and the integrity of the products.
FIRST is ANSI/ISO/ASQ 9001-2015 and ISO 17025-2005 compliant and participates in a compressed air quality proficiency program. These accreditations and proficiencies ensure that our lab meets the highest standards of quality and can deliver reliable, consistent laboratory test results.
