Quality by Design and Single-Use Air Sampling Approaches
Quality by Design (QbD) is a well-known concept in the pharmaceutical industry to increase the overall quality of pharmaceutical drugs and increase patient´s safety. Controlling the quality of air inside an environmental monitoring program is a vital aspect of managing the risk towards the patient.
This webinar will give you an insight into how QbD can be applied to microbiological monitoring using most recent advances in technologies, including single-use. We will introduce and discuss the concept of continuous viable air sampling following the guiding principles that are well known from the particle monitoring aspect.
