Cleaning Agents are frequently used in a drug manufacturing environment to effectively remove the residue of previously manufactured products to get the production equipment ready for manufacturing the next drugs. Using Cleaning Agents becomes necessary when water is not considered a suitable agent.

Primary points of debate are establishing the basis of toxicity and quantifying the interactions with other drug products within shared equipment.
In this Micro Article, we will put all these confusions to rest.
