- Use the dilute disinfectant solutions for different areas as per Tabel-1.
- All the prepared disinfectants used in Sterility Testing areas, MLT and Sub-culture areas shall be filtered through sterile 0.2 µm membrane filter into suitable containers.
- Prepare and filter required volume of disinfectants in purified water or water for injection in MLT area after the completion of work or once the area is available.
- Collect the filtered disinfectant into suitable containers/bottles as per the requirement. Label the disinfectant containers with the details: Name, Date of filtration, filtered by and Use before date and store them in the room. This disinfectant shall be used up to the next day of filtration of the disinfectant.
- For scheduled routine disinfection of floors, walls, and other surfaces prepare the dilute surface disinfectant in the buckets and use immediately.
- For surface disinfectant used during other activities, prepare and add the disinfectant in the spray bottles. Label these dilute disinfectant bottles with the details: Name, Date of preparation, Preparation number, prepared by and Use before Date. This disinfectant shall be used up to the next day of preparation of the fresh disinfectant.
- For LAF workbenches use 70% IPA for cleaning and disinfection.
- Use the sterillium as it is without dilution.
- Use the defined volume of disinfectants concentration solutions and diluent as per Table-2, for 1000 ml of dilute disinfectant preparation.
- Record the preparation of disinfectants as per Annexure no. (Format No.:
