The aseptic processing method is used to pack sterile drugs in sterile containers. This process is one of the most critical stages in biopharmaceutical manufacturing, because of the risk contamination poses to patient safety. An aseptic process simulation is performed by biopharmaceutical firms to ensure the process can be performed with minimal contamination. This is accomplished by using a growth medium instead of the actual product in the processing steps.
Regulators look for these aseptic processing simulations or media fills, as they are sometimes called, to demonstrate control of the process and also the operators executing the tasks. These simulations must be done periodically and with the knowledge of the regulations that govern them.
This session by expert speaker Danielle DeLucy will help those using APS/media fills to determine their risks of contamination in the process, and how they can prevent it. Danielle will give a complete review of what elements need to be included in the APS design, including the frequency of performance, the number of operators, what types of growth media to use, how slow or fast the filling line needs to operate, and how to read the units after they have been incubated.
