GBAC publishes new cleaning resource guide

Guide aims to educate on cleaning validation and auditing technologies.

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) has released its Validation and Auditing Technology Resource Guide and Directory.

The new resource guide serves to educate industry professionals about the current and emerging technologies for cleaning validation and auditing. It is available complimentary to ISSA members and GBAC customers.

“With cleaning for health more important than ever, it is important to audit and validate a cleaning program’s efficacy,” said GBAC senior director, Dr Gavin Macgregor-Skinner.

“We are excited to offer this resource to ISSA members, GBAC customers, and the industry as a whole to make it easier for them to identify the best partners for their cleaning performance validation and auditing needs.”

This publication includes education regarding cleaning validation and auditing technologies, environmental hygiene monitoring, and data collection and analysis.

Some technologies outlined include ATP portable microbiological tests, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), air pathogen detection, fluorescent marking, sensors, software, and more.

Several GBAC STAR Registered Technologies have participated in this initiative. Products that have achieved the GBAC STAR Registered Seal have been assessed by the GBAC Scientific Advisory Board for scientific validity, usability, practicality, safety, and efficacy.

GBAC is a division of ISSA. INCLEAN is published by The Intermedia Group on behalf of ISSA.
