Pharmaceutical Water - Guidelines and Practice
Knowledge about pharmaceutical water systems tends to take a back seat within pharmaceutical companies. This interactive training has been set up with the aim of giving participants a solid basic knowledge of this subject.
- 1 day
- Course fee
- € 795 (excl. VAT)
In this course the new guidelines of the European Pharmacopoeia as well as the requirements of the FDA are covered. Topics include:
- Regulations and guidelines (Europe, United States)
- Differences in water quality within a pharmaceutical production environment
- Differences between RO water, PW and WFI, (Reversed Osmosis, Purified Water and Water for Injection)
- Monitoring and testing of the water flow
- Trend analysis,
- Test plans in the form of a workshop
- V-model for the qualification of a new water system
The new guidelines offer the possibility to make and use not only warm WFI but also cold WFI in Europe. During the training this matter will be discussed in further detail. In addition, the distillation process is explained.
Another interesting part of the training is that we will be looking at a WFI production system with explanation of the various components, allowing you to see from closeby how it all works. In the course of this interactive training participants are actively involved in the various subjects. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions from the perspective of your own professional role or work situation.
