Aseptic Processing

Components arriving for aseptic processing are classed as sterile. During processing of these items to produce the final product, personnel must aim to maintain the sterility of all items used. Contamination therefore needs to be minimised.

  • Clean Rooms (e.g. design, grading and use of)
  • Clean air devices including Horizontal and Vertical Laminar Flow Cabinets
  • Techniques for minimising contamination from personnel (e.g. correct hand washing technique, use of appropriate protective clothing)

Multiple choice questions are interspersed throughout the package to test the user’s understanding of the material covered.
