Markus Multhauf, Senior GMP Consultant
The requirements for particles in pharmaceutical water and pure gases are sometimes contradictory, sometimes even technically difficult to realize. There is also a gray area between visible and nonvisible particles. Uncertainty also exists with regard to filters: whether they can be used in critical utility systems and how they should be validated.
Particles in Parenteralia continue to be an “issue”, leading to product recalls. In addition to the 100% visual inspection of final products, the fundamental reduction of the particle load in the manufacturing processes is an important aspect of the Quality Life Cycle. In this context, clean utilities play an essential role.
This webinar is designed for production & engineering professionals in pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturing, as well as for Quality assurance personnel who is dealing with particles in water and gas. It may also be useful for employees in plant construction and planning, who are concerned with the GMP-compliant construction or conversion of clean utility systems.
To participate in an on demand training course or webinar, you do not need any software. The recordings are made available via a streaming server. In general, the recording is provided in MP4 format, which any PC (Microsoft Windows, Apple IOS) or tablet can easily Display.
Timing and Duration:
When you register for the on demand Training course or webinar you can decide at what date you want to follow the training course online. For a 1-day training course you will have 2 days in which the stream is available (for 2-day training course 3 days and for a 3-day training course 4 days). Within in this timeframe you can start & stop the stream according to your Needs.
In time before the scheduled date (your desired date) you will receive an e-mail from us with a link for direct participation as well as your log-in data.
Please be aware: The recording does not include the Q & A sessions.
Training Course Documentation and Certificate:
The presentations will be made available as PDF files via download shortly before the online training course. After the event, you will automatically receive your certificate of participation.
This webinar will help you gain a practical understanding of the design and operation of media systems in terms of particle content. You will gain knowledge to differentiate important and correct GMP requirements from outdated or incorrect requirements. Based on the specifications of pharmacopoeias and standards, participants will learn about the state of the art for the different media and particle size ranges. Technical solutions are presented.
The following points, among others, are subject of this webinar:
- Differentiation between visible and “non-visible” particles
- Available measurement technology for particles
- Filter technology for media Systems
- Relationship between particles and microbiology
- Particle problems in practice
- Pharmacopoeial statements: USP <788> and Ph.Eur. 2.9.19
- Relationship between rouging and particles
- Is there particle-free WFI?
- Requirements of DIN 58950-7 and EN 285 for pure steam
Recording from 19 May 2022
Duration of the recording: 1.5 h
