The A to Z’s of Microbial Control, Monitoring, Validation and Troubleshooting of Pharmaceutical Water Systems RAPS Approved. Earn 12 RAC Points

 

Date & Time:

 

April 19th and April 20th 2012

8 AM PDT to 5 PM PDT

Duration: 2 Days

Instructor: Teri C. Soli

Location: Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia Downtown

Price : $1695.00

(for one participant)

Overview: This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other nonbiologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter.  This understanding  is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don’t work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn't recur.

Areas Covered in the Session: Day 1, April 19, 2012 Lecture 1: What Makes Water Systems Have Microbial Quality Problems l

Understand biofilm basics and how it develops

l

Understand the impact of biofilm on the commonly used purification unit operations

l

Understand how various commonly used microbial control

l

strategies work (or don’t work) to control biofilm development Understand the how, where, and why of microbial monitoring,

l

action levels, etc. Debunk a few water system myths

l

Get answers to your own water system questions
