Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Manufacturing
VAI continually innovates, develops, and specializes in contamination control products for classified, cleanroom areas in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Many of our developments have been landmarks in the industry’s history that have allowed our customers to overcome challenges and reach their business goals.
Since it is essential for proper disinfecting and contamination control while developing pharmaceuticals or biotechnology, VAI has refined four different divisions to allow for this. All four of VAI’s divisions work together to help our customers meet their needs and requirements in classified areas. Whether it is our complete set of sterile, pharmaceutical grade disinfectants, sporicides, and cleaners, our disposable products, our viable environmental monitoring equipment, or our VAI Labs, we are able to meet and exceed these obligations and regulations.
Our recent history is a true testament to how the FDA requirements have been part of VAI’s daily development and innovation of our products. Cleanroom Documentation Systems, to help eliminate particle shedding from documentation in the cleanroom, our SMA OneTouch® ICS, a fully integrated viable monitoring command system, our innovative cart transfer systems, and our redesigned, chemical resistant, Easy2Gown, breathable garments, are only some of our recent advancements to reconcile the difference between actuality in the cleanroom and the new standards set forth for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry.
Medical Device Manufacturing
The Medical Device industry is subject to similar regulations set forth by the FDA as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Often, the medical device industry needs to reevaluate their cleaning rotation cycles in order to meet and stay up to date with these standards. Even though, not all devices are subject to the same standards, VAI works with you to ensure that our products are able to meet any FDA regulation.
With VAI’s sterilization and contamination control methods, through sterile disinfectants, cleaners, sporicides, cleanroom wipers, cleanroom cleaning equipment, cart transfer systems, and cleanroom documentation, the medical device industry will be able to stay in check with these demanding regulations. During manufacture of these medical devices it is essential that the proper cleaning and disinfecting products are used to ensure that protocol is being followed and the final product is up to its highest standard and this is where VAI comes in. We offer in addition, consulting and laboratory services that have the ability to validate the products that will be best useful in your operation, therefore, reducing your in house costs that could be used elsewhere. Through our latest innovations and developments, we will be able to continue to improve on the manufacturing in the medical device industry.
