Assuring end-patient safety through holistic contamination control

Conference Chairman: Don Singer, USP General Chapter Committee, Microbiology Chair, US Pharmacopeia and ECOLAB

Following on the success of the previous West Coast events, we are delighted to announce SMi's 5th Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology West Coast conference taking place in San Diego on June 20th and 21st,2022. 

Microbiology remains an essential tool for the detection of microorganisms to protect patients globally. The pharmaceutical microbiology industry has seen many changes during the progression into the 21st century. With advances in rapid microbiological methods, revised industry regulation, enhanced knowledge of innovative therapies, and novel testing methods, this industry is ever expanding.

This conference will explore the most pressing topics in this thriving field, from the movement toward process automation and minimisation of operator intervention, to the latest technologies in rapid microbiological testing methods and data integrity
Join industry experts to discuss the latest topics and pressing challenges in this field. 

Network with professionals, discuss revisions in regulatory and guidance documents, explore data integrity considerations and approaches for conventional and rapid microbiology methods, discuss optimised environmental monitoring to best control contamination and gain insight into an industry perspective on alternative endotoxin testing methods and process automation, all contributing to better management of contamination in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

Key Reasons to Attend:
1. Discuss expert guidance and explore the regulations concerning objectionable organisms in drug products
2. Gain insight into changing paradigms in the field, from in-process testing to digitalisation
3. Explore alternative endotoxin test methods and rapid microbiological testing
4. Evaluate the best practices and most common pitfalls within microbial detection and elimination
5. Dissect the framework of a robust Global Contamination Control Program and how to approach implementing a holistic CCS
