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
24 -27 February 2014
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.
• 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,chromatography, formulation through to supply chain logistics.
• Explore the impact of single-use components on validation needs
• Apply QbD when implementing pre/post-approval process changes.
