Two Day Course – A to Z’s of Microbial Control, Monitoring and Validation of Water Systems (Burlingame, CA, United States – March 8-9, 2017) – Research and Markets

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “The A to Z’s of Microbial Control, Monitoring and Validation of Water Systems for Pharmaceuticals, Biologics, Medical Devices, Cosmetics, and Personal Care Products” conference to their offering.

This 2-day course is particularly relevant to managers, supervisors, and operatives taking on new responsibilities related to water, but also for experienced water personnel to learn the true whys behind what they do and perhaps better ways of doing things.

Specific positions that will benefit:

– Microbiology Laboratory supervisors and analysts responsible for water sampling and testing

– Quality Assurance personnel responsible for water system deviation management and change control

– Regulatory and Compliance professionals responsible for FDA interactions

– Process and Utility Engineers responsible for water system maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion mitigation

– Facility Engineers responsible for water system design or renovation

– Validation personnel for water system qualification

Learning Objectives:

– Understand the role of system design, maintenance and sanitization in controlling microbial levels in pharmaceutical water systems.

– Successfully troubleshoot problems resulting from poor design/maintenance versus sampling or testing problems.

– Devise water system validation protocols that truly validate microbial control.

– Validate their water microbial test method.

– Develop sound Alert and Action Levels and Water Specifications.

– Defend their test method, in-process control levels and specifications to FDA.
