Establishing the Foundation for a Contamination Control Strategy: Facility Design, Utilities, and Quality Systems

The ongoing evolution of Contamination Control Strategy principals focus on a holistic approach to design and function.  This allows contamination controls to work together to achieve proactive mechanisms of control, versus reactive controls, and are evaluated to ensure their collective effectiveness.  This presentation will focus on the importance of Facility Design, Environmental Control, and Quality Systems
