Effective Contamination Control Strategy Implementation & Microbial ID [WORKSHOP]




THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2021 (09:00 - 14:00) (GMT+8)



Park Royal Hotel
7500 Beach Road

Effective Contamination Control Strategy Implementation & Microbial ID workshop is a Charles River sponsored extension to the 2022 PDA Pharmaceutical Manufacturing & Quality Virtual Conference.


A Contamination Control Strategy is not a paper exercise with limited input. A holistic approach requires an experienced and reliable knowledge base for each of the systems. The CCS brings all these systems together under its contamination control centric umbrella. As every system in interdependent upon other systems contamination control mindset must be applied universally.


A holistic approach evaluates perceived risks in the design and planning process while actual risks are assessed in the qualification, start up and operational stages.


Join Ziva Abraham & Christian Scheuermann on this workshop to learn best practices, implementation of your own CCS.
