Microorganisms can be found in any aspect of pharmaceutical manufacturing, especially, biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Understanding where to look for microorganisms and how these are introduced into your process will provide success when being reviewed by an regulatory agency or auditor. It is not enough to identify the microorganisms in your process, but to understand, how, where, when, and why the microbes are present in your process. These are questions regulatory bodies and auditors will ask when your facility is being inspected.

Why should you attend?

The webinar provides a comprehensive overview of auditing for microbiological aspects of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing. The use of cleanrooms to manufacture drug products has been done for years. Microbiological aspects of manufacturing have been incorporated into the manufacturing process. By understanding the microbiological aspect, auditors and regulatory bodies can understand whether the manufacturing facility is under a state of control. There are international and federal regulations that describe what aspects should be considered during manufacturing.

This webinar will go into detail on those regulations and how they apply to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
