Why is the sterility of your drug product much more than just a test of sterility?

Why is the sterility of your drug product much more than just a test of sterility?

10.21.20

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

A lack of sterility and sterility assurance continue to be a significant reason for drug recalls and regulatory citations and can pose a very real risk to patient safety and public health. Sterilization is a pivotal step in the pharmaceutical drug development process to help ensure overall safety is maintained. In this presentation we will:
 
  • Examine the goal and science of sterility assurance including the revision of AAMI ST67
  • Introduce and contrast Terminal Sterilization and Aseptic Processing of drug products through a regulatory lens as well as that of a manufacturer
  • Discuss modification strategies to consider in order to use Terminal Sterilization
 
This information is meant to provide manufacturers with a better understanding of sterility to help them make the best decisions in regards to their specific drug product and relative patient safety.

How One CDMO Used an Innovative Technology to Overcome Viral Vaccine Production Challenges

How One CDMO Used an Innovative Technology to Overcome Viral Vaccine Production Challenges

08.18.20

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

In modern medicine, vaccines are used to prevent or eliminate infectious diseases with exceptional impact in reducing mortality and morbidity rates around the globe. Unfortunately, vaccine developers often struggle to meet demand due to volume, leading many to turn to contract manufacturing and developing organizations (CDMOs) as a reliable partner for flexible vaccine production capacity.
 
As today’s CDMOs continue to see a spike in demand, they require innovative technologies to accelerate manufacturing, streamline process management, and decrease costs for customers. Structured fixed-bed bioreactors have proven to offer a reliable, scalable solution that increases flexibility while decreasing both cost and footprint.
 
Join us for a webinar on 18 August 2020 at 2pm EST to learn how Ology Biosciences is leveraging innovative bioreactor technologies and bioprocessing expertise to bring vaccine production to the next level. Case study results and expert insights will be shared on how to find success with adherent-cell growth profiles and viral performance to produce viral vaccines.

Testing Disinfectant Agents for Antimicrobial Action on Hard Surfaces

Testing Disinfectant Agents for Antimicrobial Action on Hard Surfaces

07.15.20

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

Disinfectants must be qualified on the surfaces in a pharmacopeial manufacturing environment prior to use in the facility. Building a study with robust parameters and avoiding common pitfalls is critical to avoid negative responses from regulatory agencies. Spending more time on study design and development upfront will save valuable resources in the long run.
 
The goal of this presentation is to provide a general overview of disinfectant efficacy testing and to provide a detailed methodology to assist in designing coupon studies that accurately represent facility procedures. As we attempt to bridge the gap between laboratory conditions and environmental conditions, test method acceptance criteria and interpretation of coupon study results will also be discussed. Specifically, we aim to provide insight into how the results of a coupon study can be utilized to improve cleaning procedures.
 
What you’ll learn if you attend:
 
  • Study Design – how to choose parameters that are representative of your facility while meeting regulatory expectations.
  • Indications that initial or subsequent disinfectant efficacy testing needs to be performed.
  • Interpretation of results – translating microorganism log reductions into useful information on the efficacy of facility cleaning procedures and disinfectants.

ICH Stability Testing and Method Development

ICH Stability Testing and Method Development

04.22.20

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

Stability testing is a vital part of product development and is conducted throughout a product’s life cycle. Stability is part of a biotherapeutic’s quality target product profile, and results help analysts understand how critical quality attributes (CQAs) of both drug substances and products are influenced under specific conditions of temperature, relative humidity (RH), light, storage, pH, and other factors. These studies are required to be conducted in a planned way following the guidelines issued by ICH, WHO and or other agencies. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the ICH guidelines for Stability testing, as well as aspects of analytical method development.

Serialization 2.0 – What’s Next?

Serialization 2.0 – What’s Next?

02.12.20

NOW AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND

The road to serialization has been long and arduous for the pharmaceutical industry. Yet, there are still many hurdles to overcome in the next few years—saleable returns, line aggregation and interoperable data exchange just to name a few.

Additionally, industry experts now realize that serialization alone will not solve the ever-increasing global threat of counterfeited and diverted pharmaceutical products. The investments made to date on serialization are staggering and pharmaceutical companies are now looking to leverage these efforts to more effectively fight their supply chain and compliance issues.

Join us as we discuss the future of the pharmaceutical supply chain and review innovative technologies that will not only get us to the 2023 DSCSA deadline, but are changing the landscape for brand, product and consumer protection.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Saleable Returns and VRS
  • Secure tracking at the package level, including aggregation
  • Why your drug distribution channel is still not safe
  • Augmenting existing serialization solutions with innovative technologies
  • Leveraging existing package labeling to fight supply chain threats
  • Cost-effective solutions to prevent counterfeiting and diversion
