This conference will explore a large variety of topics and approaches to microbial contamination control, sterile/non-sterile products, biofilm and pharmaceutical grade water. Furthermore, it will provide an overview of regulatory trends and updates, such as the Annex 1 Revision. The conference will also focus on new technologies and trends, e. g. data integrity and quality metrics.
Following the conference there are some training courses:
Two Day Training Course: Charting and Trending of Environmental Monitoring Data from microbial counts to recovery rates in controlled rooms - 25 Feb to 26 Feb
This basic-level practical course will first present the methodology of microbial Environmental Monitoring (EM) data analysis of samples of air (active and passive sampling) and of surfaces (contact plates) by both the statistical distribution-based and the empirical distribution-free approaches.
Two Day Training Course: Rapid Microbiological Methods - 25 Feb to 26 Feb
This comprehensive course is designed to provide an intensive review of currently available rapid microbiological method (RMM) technologies, validation strategies, applications, regulatory expectations, financial justification models and implementation plans. Taught by one of the industry’s global leaders in rapid methods, the attendee will be immersed in discussions that will provide a meaningful and understandable roadmap for how to evaluate RMMs and employ them in their own laboratory and manufacturing areas.
Two Day Training Course: Control, Validation and Monitoring of Biofilms in Water Systems - 25 Feb to 26 Feb
This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education in language understandable by all personnel, microbiologist and non-microbiologist alike who have any involvement with water systems. The instructor can provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, and investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often do not work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls.
