Quality by Design for Effective Bioprocess Characterisation and Validation
Get expert guidance on choosing on how best to integrate QbD, DoE and PAT into lifecycle approach to process characterisation
25 -28 February 2013
A series of stimulating interactive lectures from experts in the field and teamwork activities will enable you to:
- Learn about the latest FDA and EMEA regulations with regards to QbD, PAT, process characterisation and validation studies.
- Understand how to adopt a lifecycle approach to process characterisation and validation to obtain deeper process understanding.
- Understand current and future perspectives of the impact of QbD and PAT on the effort required for process characterisation.
- Learn how to perform Risk Assessments to determine Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) and Critical Process Parameters (CPPs).
- See examples of how to combine scale-down models with historical knowledge and DoE to map out design space.
- Understand the principles behind the characterisation and validation of unit operations, such as fermentation, filtration and chromatography.
- Explore the impact of single-use components on validation needs
- Apply QbD when implementing pre/post-approval process changes.
