SMi Reports: Interview with Matts Ramstorp, Professor in Cleanroom Technology, BioTekPro, chairing the upcoming SMi’s 2nd Annual Next Generation Pharmaceutical Cleanroom in London on 7 – 8 October 2020.

The 2nd Annual Next Generation Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Conference is taking place in London, UK on the 7 and 8 October 2020. SMi are proud to introduce some insightful content from the conference chairman Matts Ramstorp, Professor in Cleanroom Technology, BioTekPro.

Matts Ramstorp will be chairing the conference and also speaking on: ‘Cleanroom Operators – Still a Major Potential Risk’ and covering:

• Cleanroom operators – Needed or not?
• Know how – Know why!
• Operator failures due to lack of knowledge
• Cleanroom garment demands
• Integrity testing of cleanroom garments

Here is a snippet of the interview:

The pharmaceutical cleanroom industry has matured greatly over recent years, what significant developments have you noticed in the last year?
The major difference that I see is that we are increasingly more focused on risk assessments, and not merely looking to reach certain levels of cleanliness. Our GMP is not that specific and detailed, which has forced the pharmaceutical industry to work according to QRM – Quality Risk Management principles.

What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the field of cleanrooms at the moment?
At the moment my biggest concern is the coronavirus pandemic. The present situation allows no physical meetings, and it can be quite hard to work with trouble shooting without being physically present. Operator training, which I consider as my favorite area of work can, despite Corona, be solved either by online training or using internet platforms.

What are the key challenges if any faced in the cleanroom marketplace?
Well, the key challenge today, from my point of view, is the coming Annex 1. The delay of this important document has been quite stressful. I see the same reaction amongst the different companies that I work with. We are all looking forward to the publishing of the new Annex 1.
