Hi all, I work in the cannabis industry and part of our facility is GMP certified. To validate our cleaning/sanitation program we've been collecting ATP swabs and our auditor was satisfied with this. Now we have added a flower packaging room to the scope. This room runs 24/7 and although they clean between strains and SKUs (for example pre-roll joints and bagged flower) this space is literally covered in flower/trim/kief material and not surprisingly our ATP readings are through the roof. I know this space is clean, the team is in PPE, we use professional cleaning chemicals and sanitizers and the space is spotless-- besides the perpetual coating of flower material. How do we validate cleaning in this space? Are ATP swabs still acceptable? Could it be as simple as increasing our ATP swab RLU limit? Can you just do that?! Is there an alternative to ATP swabs for this type of environment?
Always appreciate the help I get here!
Thanks in advance.
