ISPE „Aseptic Processing”

Organised in cooperation with ISPE DACH, our workshop in Bad Dürkheim was met with an excellent response. After all, containment is a hot topic in the pharmaceutical industry right now. The growing awareness is driving the technological advancement of containment facilities in pharmaceutical production and laboratories. The time has come to discuss the matter in professional circles.

In view of the importance of process reliability, specific measures are required for working with low occupational exposure limit values and complex toxicological analyses. After all, many of the latest drugs work at even a low dosage, meaning that their ingredients are highly active. What offers opportunities to patients poses a challenge for manufacturers. This is compounded by new regulations such as the extended EU GMP guidelines.

At the two-day workshop in Bad Dürkheim, the team here at Pitzek GMP Consulting worked with ISPE DACH to organise highly successful discussions of these topics. Learning, sharing experiences, discussions and the development of ideas and technologies were all on the agenda. The workshop was quickly fully booked and a follow-up event is already being planned.
