Course Overview

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.

ICH guidances

Understand applicable ICH guidances to ensure your operations are compliant

Quality by Design

Learn to apply the principles of QbD and appreciate the advantages and disadvantages of a QbD approach

Process development

Examine the stages of process development and evaluate small-scale process models to understand their limitations

Risk management

Learn how to assess and manage risks to bioprocessing

Process control strategy

Apply a process control strategy and discuss how to set limits and ranges - you will construct a take away spreadsheet to help you implement a process control strategy back at your facility
