Steam Sterilization: The Microbiological Component For Compliance

Whether qualifying a new autoclave installation or continuing maintenance of existing equipment, you must meet specific expectations for steam sterilization. After all, the goal of a successful autoclave Performance Qualification (PQ) is not just that the machine meets operating standards but that it achieves sterility.

Are you seeking a better understanding of the microbiology behind steam sterilization validation? Do you know what type of sterilization is right for your process—and the effects various types can have on your product/processes? This understanding is critical for a successful autoclave PQ—and pharmaceutical and biology expert Danielle DeLucy can help you get it.

In this information-packed webinar, DeLucy will describe the steam sterilization mechanism as it relates to bacterial cells and endospores. She will define key terminology and answers common industry questions as she demonstrates a practical application of steam sterilization. DeLucy will also lay out sterilization process parameters as a basis for conducting autoclave PQ studies.

After attending this webinar, you’ll have a firm understanding of sterility assurance level, accumulated lethality, temperature mapping, and biological verification. Plus, you’ll be confident with the regulatory use of air removal verification tools, chemical indicators, and biological indicators. In short, you’ll be prepared to troubleshoot unexpected events and improve your autoclave processes.
