In his presentation Hans Noordergraaf will focus on “false positive” sterility tests are a major concern for business continuity; a non-zero percentage sterility test failure rate as a regulatory auditor topic which can be avoided; how to use FMEA as a tool to reduce risk of “false positives” implementation of risk mitigation and on it’s influence on sterility test failure rate. The audience will benefit from the discussion on risk assessment as a key tool in prevention of failures in either analysis or processes.
