Curtailing Microbial Excursions and Investigations

Curtailing Microbial Excursions and Investigations in Pharmaceutical Water Systems - Webinar By GlobalCompliancePanel

Overview: Water system microbial excursions are the bane of laboratories, utility operations, and production, often causing huge expenditures of labor for system sanitization and additional testing and quarantines of whole systems or specific outlets while fruitless investigations are mounted, not to mention the potential cost of product rejections when root causes are not definitive. Though some excursions are real and a sign of system control problems, most are probably self-inflicted, being caused by poorly designated "trigger values", poorly designed use points, or poorly executed sampling or testing. This presentation will explore these possible causes, including the symptoms of real (as well as false) water system problems, and provide effective alternatives to avoiding most of your current superfluous excursions, as well as how to build supporting data useful in pinpointing causes when investigations are indeed necessary.Why Should You Attend: When was the last time you performed a water system excursion investigation and could not definitively conclude the root cause? If you are like most firms, this scenario was probably your most recent experience, happens quite often, and frankly, is probably completely unnecessary. Most excursions are usually caused by self-inflicted phenomena. This presentation will discuss the most common causes of microbial excursions in water systems and how they can easily be avoided with minimal effort. Areas Covered in the Session:What are excursions? Water system dilemma: process control or quality control (utility or raw material), or both Intended functions of Alert/Action Levels and Specifications Investigation, necessary and often fruitless Excursion responses and impact Criticality of valves, hoses, & outlet flushing Diagnosing the source of the problem Minimizing unnecessary excursion responses through best practicesWho Will Benefit: QA managers and personnel involved in investigations of excursions and preparing CAPAsQC managers and personnel involved in sampling, testing, and trending chem and micro data from water systemsUtility operators and their managers involved in maintaining and sanitizing water systemsValidation managers and personnelQA managers and other personnel involved in Change Control programsQA managers and Regulatory Affairs personnel involved in defending water system operations and quality data to FDA and EMEA inspectors and outside auditorsConsultants and TroubleshootersPrice: $225.00GlobalCompliancePanelPhone: 800-447-9407Fax: 302-288-6884
