Reduce risk and build confidence in your USP <797> environmental monitoring program with competency testing for surface sample collection.
USP <797> (2022) states that "It is important that personnel are trained and competent in air and surface sampling procedures to ensure accurate and reproducible sampling". Data generated from surface samples are used to make critical decisions regarding cleanroom compliance. Surface sample collection can be highly operator dependent. Now there is a way to verify and document operator training, including evaluation of aseptic technique and sample collection proficiency.
Enverify™ standardized test surfaces provide a first-of-its-kind method to evaluate surface sampling competency. Each kit contains 3 test surfaces with a known quantity of microorganisms and 2 blinded blank test surfaces. This kit design allows assessment of adequate sampling technique and proper aseptic technique.
A 30-minute optional training course is available that teaches participants proper contact plate sampling technique and explains the factors that impact sampling performance and data. This includes topics such as technician specific risk factors, aseptic technique, consistency of sampling method, and video demonstrations of proper technique.
