This course provides all background information needed to fully understand the problems that may arise during the production of pharmaceutical products. The theory section explains the basis of various aspects that are essential for the production of biopharmaceutical products. Various important techniques are discussed.
The practical part takes place in a real production environment, allowing the participants to experience the importance of working in a cleanroom. Various techniques are performed either by the students themselves, or demonstrated by an experienced operator.
The course consists of 2 modules which can also be followed separately:
Module 1: Introduction to Upstream Processing (1 day). For more information click here
Module 2: Introduction to Downstream Processing (1 day).
After the training sessions, the participants have knowledge of:
- the different process steps that are important for the production of (bio)pharmaceutical products
- basic principles of various purification techniques for use in downstream processing, including chromatography, ultrafiltration, diafiltration and centrifugation.
- various virus elimination and inactivation techniques
- the operation of sealing and welding equipment
- pharmaceutical microbiology
- basic principles of working in a cleanroom
Anyone who wants to know more about the production of biotechnological pharmaceutical products. These may include for instance production operators, QA, Regulatory Affairs staff and auditors.
This course is also intended for QC analysts and validation staff who want to increase their pharmaceutical knowledge in the field of biotechnological products.
