PBE Expert Inc provides to the Fine Chemicals & API industries with skilled resources, in process engineering, Layout, validation, calibration, maintenance, quality assurance and cGMP compliance.

Sanitary design of process equipment, clean utilities, and pharmaceutical systems implies at the outset the conformity with the standard ASME-BPE, ATEX and ISPE.

Design of Layouts  is implemented through the control of clean environments (ISO-14644-4 and ISPE), by means of appropriate technologies ensuring high confidence in product integrity and quality, cGMP compliance and reducing cross contamination, Mix-Up, and critical gaps.
