Beckman Coulter is sponsoring a new educational webinar, “Introduction to the new USP 787: “Subvisible Particulate Matter in Therapeutic Protein Injections”,” an educational session that will describe in detail some of the new demands in counting particles in liquids, with a focus on the challenges of preparing and sampling protein-based materials. The webinar is free to attend and will be broadcast live April 8, 2015 at 7:00am PT.

USP has recently posted a new test for protein-based materials, known as USP 787, and indicated that a companion informational chapter, USP 1787, will be crafted to further describe methods and options for evaluating protein-based materials. This presentation will delineate the differences between the more well-known USP 788 and the new USP 789, focusing on critical sample preparation and handling to provide good data on particulate concentration in protein solutions. Two types of instruments that could be employed for this method are discussed and compared, one based on light obscuration and a second on the Coulter principle.

The speaker will be Joe Gecsey, Life Science Application Manager, Beckman Coulter, Particle Counting and Characterization. Currently the Life Science Application Manager at Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, PCC (Particle Counting and Characterization) (formerly part of Hach), Joe has been involved with the particle counting industry since 1984. First joining Met One as an electronic design engineer, Joe has been involved in both airborne and liquid particle counter design, as well as multi-sensor systems for facility monitoring systems (FMS). Joe has been involved in various standards involving particle counting in air and liquids. He is part of the TC209 WG1 revision group on the main global cleanroom certification standard, ISO 14644-1 and -2, one of the two Americans on the committee. He is also involved with the ISO TC24/SC4 committees related to use and calibrations of various particle counting and characterization instruments.

The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 7:00am PDT, 10:00am EDT, 3:00pm GMT.
