The objective of USP <797> is to describe conditions and practices to prevent harm, including death, to patients that could result from:

  • Microbial contamination
  • Excessive bacterial endotoxins
  • Variability in the intended strength of ingredients
  • Chemical and physical contaminants
  • Incorrect type or quality of ingredients in Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs)

USP <797> provides practice and quality standards for all persons who prepare CSP drugs and nutrients and all places they are prepared.

USP <797> requires that the preparation of CSPs occur in ISO Class 5 (Class 100) environments, buffer areas of ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000), and ante-areas of ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000). Achieving and maintaining cleanroom environments requires new procedures and protocols.

ITW Texwipe® has been the cleaning technology leader in controlled environments for more than four decades. We have the advice, tools and products for such USP <797> requirements as:

  • Cleaning ISO Class 5 surfaces every shift
  • Cleaning counters, work surfaces and floors daily
  • Cleaning walls, ceilings and shelves monthly
  • Cleaning supplies while transferring them to clean areas
  • Cleaning spills
  • Spraying and wiping gloves throughout the shift
  • Cleaning supplies in the controlled environment
  • Cleaning validation

Please review our brochure, which includes the key products compounding pharmacies need to meet these requirements. These products are available through a network of specialty distributors and supported by the ITW Texwipe technical support.
