New Course: Planning and Managing Compliance for Lyophilized Product

lyophilized product

Please Note:  New dates to be announced

Taking a product from research and development to commercialization can be a daunting task, particularly for the organization that is introducing their first product to the market.  FDA 2011 Process Validation Guidance was designed to help companies understand the requirements for new products to be successful but still requires interpretation for implementation.  This course is designed to understand the impact of 2011 Process Validation Stages 1 through 3 for lyophilized products and how to scientifically plan and manage these stages.  Students will be given scenarios to troubleshoot to further reinforce their understanding of the course material.  Included:

  • identifying and defining Critical Process Parameters and Critical Quality Attributes
  • cycle design and developing a lyophilization design space for the product
  • basics of cGMP compliant systems
  • requirements for clinical manufacturing and commercial manufacturing
  • analytical tests appropriate for lyophilized drug products
  • stability tests appropriate for lyophilized drug products
  • additional techniques for characterization of lyophilized materials
  • understanding and developing sampling plans for clinical drug product, stage 2 and commercial drug
