When filling medical oxygen cylinders it is critically important now more than ever to perform pre-fill odor testing as part of the required nine (9) pre-fill checks.  We wanted clarify and stress the importance of the absolute safety and regulatory requirement of pre-fill odor testing every medical oxygen and air cylinder prior to filling.    The latest USP 99 monograph dropped the requirement for post filling odor testing, however we strongly recommend continuing to perform the post odor testing as well.  Please review the pre-fill steps below and ensure you are following this cGMP requirement. Pre-Fill Inspection  Verify hydrostatic test date is current Aluminum cylinders must be within 5 years Steel cylinders must be within 10 years if star is present Verify correct cylinder color In United States oxygen color is green In Canada and many other countries oxygen color is white Perform hammer test on steel cylinder only.  Aluminum cylinders are exempt. Strike outside of cylinder with a hammer and listen for ringing or bell sound Perform visual inspection of the cylinder body Ensure no external damage or any type of residue on the cylinder Perform visual inspection of the cylinder valve Ensure no external damage or any type of residue on the valve Perform a label examination Ensure a product label exists and that it is not damaged If damaged or unreadab

According to the CGMPs, each manifold filling sequence, each uninterrupted filling sequence, every cryogenic vessel filled, and each storage tank following a delivery is considered a new lot and is required to be assigned a new lot number. For firms filling liquid oxygen for delivery to home patients, each of the large cryogenic vessels or dewars either portable or permanently mounted in a van or a truck are required to be assigned a unique lot number. The assigning of a single lot number for an entire day's production is not acceptable.  A manufacturing operation, such as the filling of high pressure cylinders on a multi-outlet manifold, is governed by a set of manufacturing procedures or conditions. When these procedures are performed from the beginning to the end of a process they provide assurance that the batch is uniform and consistent.  As such, each batch is in itself a separate entity with its filling operations unique to that filling sequence. At the present time, cryogenic home vessels filled at a patient’s home, i.e., curbside are not required to bear a lot number.  However, cryogenic home vessels filled on site and stored for future delivery, or cryogenic home vessels filled by a third party, require lot numbers.

In any manufacturing operation involving human manipulation there are hazards which may be created by preoccupation, mental lapse, carelessness and the like.  Therefore, all on-the-job and CGMP training should be revisited at frequent intervals and needs to be conducted by qualified individuals. A firm is expected to establish detailed written procedures (training program) outlining the specific areas of the firm’s operation to be covered.  On-the-job training is acceptable, as long as the training is conducted by a qualified individual on a frequent basis. Any employee involved in the manufacturing, filling, processing, handling, holding, or shipping of a medical drug is required to be trained both on-the-job and in the current good manufacturing practices.  This would include all delivery and/or truck drivers who deliver medical drug products. The lack of CGMP training is one of the most overlooked areas observed at most medical gas firms.  CGMP training should be conducted by qualified individuals on a continuing basis and with sufficient frequency to assure that employees remain familiar with CGMP requirements that are applicable to their function.  Conducting CGMP training once a year is not recommended, but instead should be presented in smaller more manageable portions, presented throughout the year with documentation* of the type, time, and attendance of each session. Applied offers CGMP training books and online classes to help get
