company has been unable to pass
TSB tests in the recent months in
order to earn new medicine
certifications. The second issue
that has been ongoing is the
occasional quarantined lot of
animal medicine; these
quarantined lots have resulted in
lost money. The possibility for
both these issues is the cleanliness
of the equipment the aseptic
fillers use, as well as the
cleanliness of the aseptic fillers.

Increased Quality

Ensuring Sterility:

There is a number of facts the aseptic fillers of Sentrx Animal Care should be aware of that have to
do with ensuring sterility. The process of steam sterilization in autoclaves can involve sterility
failures. For example, receiving a wet load or wet item from the autoclave can indicate evidence of
non-sterile material. The occurrence of a wet load from the autoclave means a major malfunction
with the sterilizer, loss of money, non-sterile material, and post-contamination risk. Another
contributing factor to sterility failures is the act of over packing the autoclave chamber. Over packing
the autoclave chamber can cause excessive condensation, steam injections, and effect steam
circulation. These are two factors to consider when ensuring sterility for the equipment used in the
clean room. Resource: http://www.ivtnetwork.com/article/ensuring-sterility-autoclaves-wet-loads-and-sterility-failures

The significance of these implications is very important to the company of

Sentrx. Introducing new sterilizing methods, a new SOP, and new training
will help increase quality control at Sentrx. Increasing quality control will
come at minimal cost and save the company thousands of dollars in the
future. These changes will allow Sentrx to move forward in the world of
medicine and continue to positively contribute to animal care.
