Material Storage Conditions in Pharmaceuticals

Medical legislation and PSI guidelines must be considered when storing pharmaceutical products. The maintenance of appropriate and conducive storage conditions is imperative to assure the efficacy, safety, quality of medicines and to assure traceability. Some chemicals and solutions in quality control and media in microbiology section are required to store in specific conditions.

1. Humidity:

Some products have labels with instructions “keep moisture free”, you are required to store such products in an area with less than 60% relative humidity.

The following can be considered to reduce the effects of humidity:

Ventilation: Always consider opening air vents or windows of the storage room to air circulation.

Packaging: All lids should be secured and avoid opening a new container unless necessary.

Circulation and Air Conditioners: where necessity and possibility entails, use an air conditioner and a fan to circulate fresh (outside) air.

Time to Get Over the “Yuck Factor”

Potable water has traditionally been perceived as an unlimited resource-something that would always be available in endless supply. As a result, water conservation has often been viewed as unnecessary. But California has been in a drought since 2009; it persists despite last winter’s rainy season and reservoir levels that are approaching normalcy.

Households consume 40% of California’s potable water through toilet use. Since toilets are plumbed with the same water that runs to kitchen sinks, toilet water is fine for drinking. Continue reading Time to Get Over the “Yuck Factor”

All About Grants for Flight Training

      There is no one-set price for earning a pilot license. A variety of factors influence how much flight training will cost. Instructor rates and aircraft rental rates vary with flight schools and some students require more than the minimum required hours to earn a rating. One constant factor is that flight training is expensive. The Iowa Department of Transportation estimates that it costs between $4,000 and $7,000 to earn a private pilot license.

Importance of Aggregates

Importance of Aggregates

Aggregate play an important part in providing strength to concrete, the transition zone of concrete is the interfacial region between an aggregate and cement paste and is responsible for providing compressive strength to cement. Care should be taken not to use Maximum size aggregate(MSA) more than 20 mm in your houses while there may be rubble of size as big as 80 to 150 mm. However, in the construction of nuclear power plants, use of rubble is advised since they require thick wall section to act as a shield against radiation.

Aggregate should be round and equiangular in size( they should not be irregular and flaky. Continue reading Importance of Aggregates
