Contamination in the lab is a constant concern for scientists in both academic and industry research settings. Many researchers assume that standard cleaning procedures such as a wipe-down with ethanol or a run through the autoclave removes all contaminants from materials and surfaces. While scientists should evaluate the effectiveness of cleaning protocols in all research settings, cleaning validation is especially important in situations where trace amounts of contaminants can have profound consequences, such as in clinical research and drug manufacturing processes.
