Dear mekky,

Can try this older post as a starter (20008) -

http://www.ifsqn.com...dpost__p__22352

Also see the surrounding posts in same thread, eg Nos #18, #25

You will observe that significant difference of opinion exist. Local regulations may apply also.

If you try searching for "swab" you will pick up several later posts / data also, eg this one -

(most data are for relatively "clean' environments perhaps not quite comparable to yr request)

I recall one arbitrary rule-of-thumb for an operational level that the TPC must be less than one tenth of the value of the product on it. :smile: Obviously just cleaned/sanitised surfaces will differ.

PS added - this one, although 2008 origin, is quite interesting also (and still active!)-
