Introduzione

Sterilization is an essential process within the pharmaceutical industry used worldwide for sterilizing numerous products. From medical supplies, media to process equipment. Different products require different ways to achieve sterility.

What does “sterile” actually mean? What does it stand for? How do I achieve sterility and how can I validate such a process?

During this training, we will address all these questions and go through a diversity of sterilization processes and how to use them.
Secondly, we will focus on the validation strategies for the different sterilization processes.

Following topics will be part of the course:

  • Which sterilization methods can be used in a pharmaceutical production environment?
  • What are the characteristics of the different sterilization methods?
  • Sterilization Validation
    • Terminology explained: SAL, F-value, Z-value, D-value, BI
    • Validation in practice
      • Distribution/mapping studies: materials to be used and approach
      • Biological studies: materials to be used and approach
      • When is a validation run successful?

The workshop will be interactive, presenting and discussing case studies and exercises.

Junior process engineers, production and Quality Control personnel supporting the validation department, Validation and Quality Assurance personnel.

The online workshop will be a mixture of theoretic presentations, case studies and practical examples.
