Total Organic Carbon (TOC) feasibility, method validation and transfer from the laboratory to the manufacturing floor

Description

In this cleaning validation webinar attendees will learn the Total Organic Carbon (TOC) feasibility, method validation and transfer from the laboratory to the manufacturing floor, as well as reviewing a feasibility study of multiple, difficult to oxidise or low solubility organic compounds.

Why Should You Attend

TOC (total organic carbon) analysis is one of the most common analytical methods used for cleaning validation in the pharmaceutical industry. This non-specific method is typically used to detect the presence of organic residues on cleaned product contact surfaces. TOC analysis is rapidly becoming the analytical method of choice for cleaning validation for several reasons. Many pharmaceutical companies are developing cleaning validation methods based on a whole-product approach: a determination is made as to whether any residue is present without regard to its origin (including products, cleaning detergents, chemicals, solvents, byproducts, degradants, and microbial contaminants). This method works well with TOC analysis, which can detect any API or cleaning agent residue that contains carbon in its molecular structure.

Areas Covered

  • Understand the Chemical Basis of TOC Analysis.
  • Learn how to set limits based on TOC.
  • Learn how to validate TOC as an analytical method for cleaning validation purposes.
  • Understand possible interferences from sampling and analysis.
  • Optimization of TOC recovery for difficult to oxidize or solubilize compounds
  • Learn appropriate uses of TOC throughout the validation life cycle.
  • Benefits of at-line and on-line sampling

Who will Benefit

Attendance will be beneficial to personnel directly involved in the development of cleaning procedures, cleaning validation programs and plans. Additionally, those responsible for cleaning validation protocols and execution activities, including validation and laboratory personnel, as well as, beginning or seasoned operational personnel who will eventually participate in such efforts, will find this course particularly useful. This includes Analytical Method Development, Quality Control, and Quality Assurance personnel.

Industries who can attend

This 90-minute online course is intended for professionals in the Medical Device, Biotechnology,Pharmaceutical Industry. Although not presently stated in the draft , the same guide could be used by FDA Regulated Industries personnel
