What you'll learn

The principles of specific sterility related subjects, such as monitoring, cleaning and disinfection, sterilization, and validation

Interpret the guidelines and common practices, and distinguish these facts from myths

A thorough understanding of the design and control factors related to the sterility assurance of sterile pharmaceutical products

Description

The Training

The sterility of a pharmaceutical product can only be assured when a series of control measures are in place. The sterility test applied to the finished product does not guarantee sterility as only a small part of the batch is tested. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the relevant regulatory requirements, sterility assurance measures, and sterility assurance concepts, which helps to develop a critical attitude towards the development and manufacture of sterile products. Including the new Annex 1! Previously organized by PAO Farmacie, now by PCS Academy.

Target audience

Professionals in pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries, Professionals in institutions and Contract Research Organisations (CRO’s), Hospital pharmacists and Postgraduate students. The course is aimed at (young) professionals in non-clinical and clinical development of new medicinal products, production, packaging, Quality Control, Quality Assurance or Regulatory Affairs who are dealing with complex quality systems. The target audience needs to gain an in-depth understanding of these systems to improve quality management in their own organization. The course is an international training program in English and requires, at minimum, a Bachelor’s Degree level (HBO level in the Netherlands).

What is it about?

This module focuses on process design and control for the manufacturing of sterile pharmaceuticals. The challenging environment in production requires expertise in microbiology and control systems specific to sterile manufacturing. Implementation of this expertise in the design and control of processes is crucial.  Contamination factors and environmental control both influence several steps in the production process and will be discussed extensively.

Course structure

Expert knowledge and real-life case studies are combined to form an ideal learning experience. Professionals from industry and academia will share their wealth of experience and knowledge during the course.
The course is interactive. The program is offered as a combination of self-study, theory, and practical case studies.
