The responsibilities of the filter manufacturer vs. the filter user will be thoroughly analyzed
It is important that the sterile filtration process is fully understood and properly validated for your particular application. The process requirements and validation needs differ based on the filtration requirement. This webinar will offer attendees a comprehensive understanding of the same while emphasizing the different types of sterilizing filtration available and their application to your particular system. For instance, the application of sterile filtration to use-point compressed air will be discussed in detail.
Why Should You Attend:
This course will offer a broad review of:
• Different filtration media with the construction characteristics and properties of each detailed
• A typical pharmaceutical sterile filtration system with its individual components
• Engineering schematics
• Microbiology and particle retention mechanisms
• Integrity testing methods and media qualification
• Procedures for the sterilization of the filter (SIP, autoclave, etc.)
The proper validation of sterile filtration is important to ensure that the filter will reproducibly remove undesirable components (bioburden) while allowing passage of desirable components (drug product). The operating parameters of time, pressure and temperature will be fully discussed along with the filter's potential effect on the product (compatibility, leachables, fibers, endotoxin, etc.). Microbial retention challenge testing is one of the validation requirements and the instructor will offer insights on the same.
At the end of the course, the instructor will present a compilation of all FDA/EU GMP regulatory guidances concerning sterile filtration. In keeping with these guidances and requirements, the responsibilities of the filter manufacturer vs. the filter user will be thoroughly analyzed.
