A successful, cost-effective and compliant process can be difficult to achieve. With the latest guidances promoting a lifecycle approach to validation, it is essential to develop a strong understanding of associated activities. This course is intended to provide a complete understanding of process development, characterisation, qualification, verification and validation to ensure efficient and compliant bioprocessing facilities.
Starting with an overview of relevant guidance documents, delegates will move on to understand Quality by Design (QbD) and how it can be applied to industry. The course will provide in-depth coverage of control strategy and process performance qualification, verification and validation. You will learn through a mixture of presentations and case study exercises to solidify your understanding. You will also construct a practical spreadsheet on process control which can be taken away for use in your day-to-day role.
This course is relevant for professionals who directly work in biopharmaceutical manufacturing or for those professionals who would benefit from a greater understanding of process characterisation, qualification and validation activities and requirements. Relevant departments may include:
