Contec Cleanroom Technical Service Group

Contec’s Technical Services Group (TSG) is an instrumental part of our ongoing commitment to supporting customer with their contamination control challenges. With more than 100 years’ combined experience, our Technical Services team of microbiologists and contamination control specialists are here to help with guidance and implementation of your contamination control strategy.

Speak to a Contec Expert

In over 75% of cases there has been some observation or suggestion that has been taken on board by the facility at the end of a CCA. The average CCA takes approximately 2 hours to complete – a small commitment with potentially significant results. Typical results include the identification of cost saving opportunities, solution to identified problems, recommendations for improved cleaning and disinfecting SOP and training suggestions.

Contamination Control Assessments

Conducted by our Technical Services Group of experts, there is no “one size fits all” approach to a Contamination Control Assessment as every end user and facility is different. The CCA can be tailored to the unique needs of the assessment site. Each CCA follows the same format of Plan, Observe and Report.

Together we will plan to determine the specific cleaning and disinfection protocols, procedures and tools that we are going to evaluate in your facility. The team will then observe and speak with personnel in operations, QA, production, engineering etc. to identify potential process or procedural improvements.

 At the end of the process you will receive a written report which will include a summary of our observations and specific recommendations for improvement, where necessary, including suggestions for the use of specific tools or equipment.

By observing operations and cleanroom behaviours, Contec provides recommendations as to product suitability, contamination control protocols, best practices, and cost-saving opportunities. CCAs are a value-added service, consultative in nature and provided at no cost to the end user/customer.

Virtual meeting and discussion with one or more TSG experts.
