Contamination: The Risk to Pharma & Biotech
Because of the highly critical nature of certain products, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) were developed and implemented as a system to ensure consistency and control in quality standards. A major aspect of the principles of GMP guidelines is a focus on the cleanliness of facilities and equipment to prevent contamination at the floor level. A robust contamination control strategy ensures products are of the highest quality, meet regulatory requirements by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and other governing bodies, and do not compromise the health & safety of end users. During manufacturing, contamination can be introduced from facility personnel, raw materials, equipment, and processes.
Common types of contamination found throughout the manufacture of drugs and biologics include visible particles like dust, debris, hair, and fibers, as well as invisible particles such as skin cells, cosmetics, and microbes. The outcomes of a contamination occurrence include threats to health & safety, quarantined batches, product recalls, and factory shutdowns. pharmaceutical flooring
The risks to a company’s brand, its profitability, and its people are too consequential to be ignored. Effective contamination control at floor level is essential for facilities adhering to GMP guidelines.
Dycem mats, implemented as part of a contamination control strategy, offer optimal support in reducing the risk of contamination in the pharma and biotech industry. pharmaceutical flooring
Don't Ignore the Floor...
80% of Contamination Enters a Critical Space at Floor Level.
Benefits of Dycem in the Pharma & Biotech Industry
80% of contamination enters a critical space at floor level.
superior Particle collection & retention
Both visible and invisible particulates from shoes and wheels are captured on Dycem mats and remain on the surface until cleaned off. Environmental monitoring (EM) counts within cleanrooms and controlled areas are significantly reduced by up to 99.9%. pharmaceutical flooring
Reduce microbial contamination concerns
With Dycem mats installed prior to critical areas, our pharmaceutical & biotechnology customers have peace of mind that damage from microbial contamination is minimized. All Dycem products contain Polygiene BioMaster, an active antimicrobial additive. pharmaceutical flooring
cost-effective, sustainable alternative
Unlike disposable contamination control solutions, Dycem mats last on average 3+ years. Pharmaceutical & biotechnology manufacturers typically see an ROI shortly after purchase, as well as the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint due to less plastic waste. pharmaceutical flooring

Structuring your Contamination Control Strategy with Dycem
Read the following article from Dr. Tim Sandle and RSSL. pharmaceutical flooring
“A contamination control strategy (CCS) is a system that considers all the integral elements of pharmaceutical product manufacturing. A CCS should cover:
- Microbial contamination
- Cleaning and disinfection
- Sterility assurance
- Facility design
- Chemical and particle contamination
- Other forms of contamination that can arise from mix-ups, damaging primary or secondary packaging, distribution problems, and environmental fluctuations”
