Cross-contamination during pharmaceutical drug manufacturing can result in expensive recalls. To counter that, companies spend significant time and resources to ensure equipment cleanliness, often relying on the compound solubility data in various solvents as the main indicator of cleaning success. The aim of this work is to provide an alternative way to analyze the fouling and cleaning of surfaces in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes by using the quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D) and Raman spectroscopy.
