Cleaning validation


Texwipe’s Low TOC Alpha® Swab Series is made from the cleanest 100% polyester knit materials. These swabs are further cleaned using a proprietary process to make this Series suitable for use in Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis as part of a cleaning validation protocol. Precision-manufactured, every swab is constructed to exacting and consistent tolerances without the use of adhesives for superior performance. Lot coded for traceability and quality control.

Low TOC Alpha® Swab - cleaned to a level of <50µg/L TOC. This minute level makes this swab the ideal tool for use in Cleaning Validation of equipment used in the manufacture of APIs, excipients and drugs.
