Aseptic processing is a critical aspect of the pharmaceutical and life science industry, where maintaining sterile and controlled environments is of utmost importance. In our discussion today, we are joined by Matt Ferrin, CFO and COO of Benchmark Products, and Mike Kosinski, President of CEPro, Inc, as they delve into the key aspects of clean room designs.

Matt and Mike highlight the significance of understanding the owner’s project requirements (OPR) in designing clean rooms. The OPR serves as the foundation for determining the necessary equipment, finishes, and loads to achieve optimal conditions. Temperature and humidity control play a vital role in minimizing contamination risks, while considering long-term maintenance costs is crucial.

Clean room design is not a one-size-fits-all approach, as each facility has specific needs. Incorporating modular walls and partitions enables future expansion and adaptability without compromising cleanliness.

With their expertise, Matt and Mike have assisted numerous companies in the pharmaceutical and life science industry in creating state-of-the-art clean rooms suitable for aseptic processing. Their innovative approaches and successful implementations have propelled the industry forward.

As we continue our discussion on this podcast, we will delve deeper into the invaluable insights shared by Matt and Mike. Their expertise sheds light on the intricacies of clean room design, driving advancements in aseptic processing and ensuring optimal conditions for pharmaceutical and life science manufacturing.
