February <I>CMM</I>: Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM)

February 19, 2009
The February issue of CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring Dr. Jay Glasel''s Development of an optimal cleaning process through Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM) article.
Dr. Glasel states that by applying Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM) principles to cleaning, optimized cleaning processes can be developed in a methodical and logical way.
He notes that the cleaning methods that have traditionally been used have not been based on the physics and chemistry of the contamination to be removed, making them less effective.
Dr. Glasel adds that the introduction of the science of ICM into the field of cleaning private, public, and corporate spaces is a logical extension of highly effective cleaning and disinfection protocols developed over the past 40 years in the pharmaceutical, electronics and optical industries.
Dr. Glasel is the managing member and founder of Global Scientific Consulting LLC. He is also a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Microbial, Molecular and Structural Biology at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in Farmington, CT. Co-editor and an author for the Academic Press textbook Introduction to Biophysical Methods for Protein and Nucleic Acid Research, Dr. Glasel''s scientific research has been in the fields of structural biochemistry, molecular immunology, pharmacology and cell biology.
