By registering for this webcast you will also receive a valuable whitepaper after the live broadcast, which provides a detailed summary of the session.

In a bio/pharmaceutical production facility, contamination is a potential threat to process and product integrity, as well as patient safety. For acceptance testing, validation, or routine monitoring, a comprehensive environmental monitoring program can ensure that manufacturing areas, cleanrooms, production equipment, and water and gas utilities are free of viable and non-viable contamination and meet regulatory requirements.

In this 60-minute webcast, the audience will learn about pertinent regulatory and quality standards, as well as best practices for establishing and maintaining an effective environmental monitoring program for a bio/pharmaceutical production facility.
An expert will review measures for testing pharmaceutical water systems according to U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) water monograph and other standards. In addition, critical test procedures to evaluate the purity of production gases (compressed air, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide), as well as particle, microbial, dew point, and residue testing will be reviewed.

Key Learning Objectives:

• Understand regulatory requirements and guidance for controlling contamination in bio/pharmaceutical production facilities
• Review testing procedures for evaluating bio/pharmaceutical production water and gas systems
• Evaluate your facility’s environmental monitoring program and develop strategies for improvement
