Spores in my cleanroom – remediation and disinfection strategies

During this webinar Dr Tim Sandle will consider the risks spores can pose to pharmaceutical operations, the use of disinfectant and the potential sources of spores.



Spores, both bacterial and fungal, present problems for contamination control. Spores are very resistant to conventional cleaning and disinfection, with bacterial spores presenting a resistance problem and fungal spores presenting a particular risk in terms of dispersal.


Topic areas we will cover include:


  • Overview of spores - bacterial and fungal
  • Risks posed by spores to pharmaceutical operations
  • Sporicidal disinfectants: Selection and concerns
  • Issue of disinfectant / sporicide resistance
  • Sources of spores
