Definitive Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Cleaning Validation Manual
A Comprehensive Guide for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries
by Syed Imtiaz Haider

Cleaning Validation Manual: A Comprehensive Guide for the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries covers the training involved in the development, manufacturing, auditing, and validation of pharmaceuticals on a pilot scale, leading to scale-up production.


  • Supplies a basic education of cleaning validation
  • Gives an advanced approach to validation professionals who are already in the field to implement and execute a thorough cleaning validation program
  • Includes 23 easy-to-use template protocols for cleaning validation of extensively and most commonly used equipments, with sampling points identified through pictures
  • Includes hands-on training based on current approaches and techniques, and gives ready-to-use formulas to develop Master Plan, SOPs, and validation protocols
  • Covers a wide range of active ingredients, including their level of solubility in water and potency/toxicity so as to provide an easy way for validation professionals to create a worst-case matrix for different equipment
  • Provides a complete tool to understand, learn, think, and implement a validation program

Additionally, the bookt includes cleaning procedures for the most commonly used equipment in various manufacturing areas and their sampling points, using a pharmaceutical manufacturing site with both sterile and non-sterile operations as the case facility. It also provides the training guidelines on a CD-ROM to enable users to amend or adopt them as necessary
