We have starting to do contract filling services and need guidance on
microbiology testing. We do not do any product manufacturing. All product and components are supplied by the customer. How do we assure that all incoming product & components are “clean” ?
My back ground from the ice cream industry was that when tankers arrived with the cream, product samples were taken. Two samples were drawn from a valve before any product was pumped out of the tanker, two samples were then drawn from the storage tank after the product was pumped in. One of each sample was then taken back to the processing plant with the driver, the other two samples were sent to a local testing lab. This assured unbiased results.
What resources do I have available to do a independent testing procedure for incoming product and for the outgoing finished goods?
What a the general costs associated with this type of testing?
