The fall session is composed of two different courses::
Feel free to take the course that suits you most, but Fedegari suggests attending both!
These courses are intended for individuals working with sterilization, aseptic processing or process validation. Experienced individuals will refine their knowledge through interaction with industry experts. Those without a strong background will learn the basics and develop an understanding of the more advanced considerations. The courses are appropriate for personnel working in QA/QC, regulatory affairs, R&D, production, engineering, process development, validation and microbiology.
October 24 – 28, 2022
The sterilization course covers the entire range of sterilization process utilized in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industry. Sterilization methods, validation practices and related subjects to be covered include: prerequisites for sterilization, microbiology of sterilization, use of BIs, steam sterilization for porous loads, terminal sterilization using steam, steam sterilization-in-place, dry heat sterilization and depyrogenation; gas, liquid and vapor sterilization (including isolator decontamination); radiation sterilization; filtration sterilization for liquids; compendium and regulatory considerations.
