Barbara Wessels



Biochemicus qua opleiding en vele jaren prospectie gedaan van medicatie en “medical devices” in ziekenhuizen.

5 jaar geleden bij Ecolab Contamination Control begonnen en verantwoordelijk gesteld voor Pharma klanten in de Benelux.

Ecolab heeft sinds 2 jaar een nieuwe divisie LIFE SCIENCES gecreëerd, die zich toespits op de klanten in de Farmaceutische en Cosmetische industrie.

Momenteel verzorg ik de wetenschappelijke ondersteuning en validatie begeleiding voor cleanroom biocides en alcoholen.

Ik help klanten met schoonmaak en desinfectie regimes. Door Biocides slim in te zetten kunnen we micro-organismen onder controle houden. Dit is natuurlijk maar 1 van de schakels in het grote geheel van “controle” in de cleanroom, maar voor de Pharma Industrie van groot belang gezien het een kritisch stap is in hun productie proces”
