Water is critical to the quality and safety of all drug products. Critical utilities such as purified water and water for injection touch almost every step of pharmaceutical manufacturing, from cleaning to batch processing. Total organic carbon (TOC) and conductivity monitoring are crucial aspects of purified water system quality and control.

The Pharma 4.0 operating model, process analytical technology (PAT) and good manufacturing practice (GMP) manufacturing are other tools to ensure water meets pharmaceutical grade requirements and regulations. All ensure data integrity and process control.

TOC and conductivity provide valuable data to manufacturers to reduce waste and increase process efficiency, specifically when monitoring in real time with online technology. Real-time data from PAT ensures a controlled and well understood process while saving sampling and analysis time.

How do you ensure your water remains pharmaceutical grade throughout the manufacturing process? How can you ensure the data meets regulatory requirements? What can you do to optimise procedures to maximise efficiency? How can you implement real-time release testing in your process?

These and many other questions will be discussed and answered during this on-demand webinar. You will learn from two experts with deep expertise in online monitoring, UPW, RTT, TOC, conductivity, cleaning validation and Pharma 4.0.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Explore how to optimise purified water system quality and control
  • Learn how real-time data can improve manufacturing productivity
  • Learn best practices from our experience implementing online monitoring, RTRT and Pharma 4.0 for TOC and conductivity.
