Designing Novel Fluid Sampling Systems for GMP Operations

4:30 PM – 5:30 PM |

Obtaining critical fluid samples with single-use products from biologic and vaccine manufacturing processes can be problematic and costly.  Although many standard solutions exists, some production processes are limited in what they can use and off the shelf products may not be suitable for all situations.  The presentation discusses a novel design and approach for a single-use, multi-tube sampling platform that was implemented to replace and improve traditional methods using glassware.  Attendees will learn design considerations, methods used to validate the system, material selection and review an actual pre-use integrity test used to verify the efficacy of each system on a batch-to-batch basis.
