You can check your production line by swap controls. it gives the information if there is any residue after allergenic contamination onto surface or not. http://solutions.3m....0beJ9C52DTHJWgl

Make sure you do the validation after a product with a high content of a certain allergen. (worse case scenario)

Also possible to analyse the first products of the product produced after cleaning. If you can validate it, it might be sometimes be cheaper and just as safe to dispose the first 20 packages rather then to do a total cleaning. This only is relevant for filling operations.

example: product with higt content allergen x - cleaning - product with no allergen x. cleaning can be validate by analysing first packages on allergen x.

Kind Regards,

I do agree with the comments posted by Madam A.D-tor. One can also conduct swabs on the line aftter through cleaning and sanitation to be tested by a reputable laboratory that specilaises in allergen tests.
