Patheon Inc., a leading provider of contract development and manufacturing services to the global pharmaceutical industry, will host a complimentary webinar on “Cleaning Validation: Science, Risk and Novel Approaches to Testing” on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
All pharmaceutical manufacturers are required to comply with regulations for cleaning validation. Many companies have incorporated their historical practices with limited scientific underpinning and little evaluation of risk. Some companies have chosen to avoid the debate entirely by using expensive, disposable systems exclusively. Using the latitude available in current good manufacturing practices for the 21st century, scientific data evaluation, and risk-based approaches can streamline the process. By developing sound and defensible programs with rapid and specific testing, cleaning validation can be efficiently and effectively implemented.
Led by Andrew Walsh, Industry Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology, and Geoff Carr, Ph.D., Director, Analytical Development at Patheon, the webinar will:
- Introduce the science-driven risk-based guide for cleaning validation being developed by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE)
- Discuss practical considerations for implementing cleaning validation programs
- Highlight the speed and efficiency benefits of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) for development and execution of cleaning test methods
