Training Course Syllabus:


The A to Z's of Microbial Control, Monitoring, Validation and Troubleshooting of Pharmaceutical Water Systems for Bio-pharma, Medical Devices and Cosmetics Industries

This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other non-biologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don´t work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn´t recur.

Why should you attend:

Much fear and hype exists with pharmaceutical biofilms, especially those in water systems. Long term biofilm control cannot be achieved from a blind set of hand-me-down rules for design and operation. One must truly understand biofilm to be able to control it. And because every water system is unique, understanding how biofilm is trying to grow in your system, which could be different than any other system. This course will give you that understanding that is translatable to any system, so that uneventful microbial control is possible. Without this understanding you will quickly find that blind rules for operation (and design) eventually fail to work, and the consequences of failure will far exceed the educational costs that could have prevented it.

Who Should Attend:

Microbiology Laboratory supervisors and analysts responsible for water sampling and testing, Quality Assurance personnel responsible for water system deviation management and change control, Regulatory and Compliance professionals responsible for FDA interactions, Process and Utility Engineers responsible for water system maintenance, repairs, troubleshooting, and excursion mitigation, Facility Engineers responsible for water system design or renovation, Validation personnel for water system qualification, Change Control personnel involved in water system changes and repairs, Production Managers involved with water system use for manufacturing and cleaning, Laboratory Managers and Supervisors responsible for lab water systems and other water sources


Agenda:
Day 1 Schedule

Lecture 1:
What Makes Water Systems Have Microbial Quality Problems

Understand biofilm basics and how it develops
Understand the impact of biofilm on the commonly used purification unit operations
Understand how various commonly used microbial control strategies work (or don´t work) to control biofilm development
Understand the how, where, and why of microbial monitoring, action levels, etc.
Debunk a few water system myths
Get answers to your own water system questions
Lecture 2:
Successful Sanitization Approaches for Trouble-Free Water Quality

Material and construction limitations
Continuous vs intermittent sanitization
The importance of biofilm removal
How sanitants work (or don´t work)
When to sanitize
Troubleshooting sanitization problems
Lecture 3:
Water System Validation by Logic Instead of Tradition

Why validate a water system?
Basic ground rules for water systems before you validate them
Micro Test Method "validation"
Minimum validation expectations
How to figure out what you should validate
What happens after the honeymoon is over
Is validation ever really over?
Special considerations for lab water systems
Are packaged waters a viable option?
Lecture 4:
Implementing Changes to a Validated System

Purpose of a Change Control program - a help, not a hindrance
When is a change major vs minor, requiring full vs limited re-qualification?
What about water use during re-qualifications?
FDA validation expectations
Reliance on logic and common sense and the disservice of precedent and paradigms
Additional useful tips
Lecture 5:
Reducing Water Microbial Excursions & Improving Investigations

What are excursions?
Water system dilemma: process control or quality control (utility or raw material), or both
Intended roles of Alert/Action Levels and Specifications
Investigation, necessary and often fruitless
Excursion responses and impact
Criticality of valves, hoses, & outlet flushing
Diagnosing the source of the problem
Minimizing unnecessary excursion responses through best practices
Day 2 Schedule

Lecture 6:
Understanding and Controlling Endotoxin

Where does endotoxin come from?
What are the properties of endotoxin?
How do you get rid of it?
How do you detect it?
What assay controls are used?

How do you control it?
Lecture 7:
Harmonizing vs Optimizing Water Microbial Testing for System Quality Control

Water harmonization that has occurred
Water Micro TM "Dis-Harmonization"
A little about Biofilm
Biofilm diversity in water systems
Micro TM options and evaluation protocol

Speaker:
Teri C. Soli, Ph.D.
Principal Consultant, Soli Pharma Solutions

T.C. Soli is a Ph.D. Microbiologist and President of Soli Pharma Solutions, Inc. offering training, auditing, and troubleshooting expertise covering water systems, contamination control, sterilization, aseptic processing, and microbiological laboratories. He has 38 years of pharmaceutical experience as a consultant and with operating companies including DSM Pharmaceuticals, Glaxo Wellcome, Burroughs Wellcome, and Pfizer.

Dr. Soli´s career-long water systems and contamination troubleshooting, coupled with water-related USP, ISPE, PhRMA, and PDA committee involvements, afford him practical knowledge about process and contamination control; cleaning, sterilization and process validation; and all aspects of high purity water systems.

He is beginning his fourth 5 year term on USP Expert Committees responsible for Pharmaceutical Water, previously served 5 years on the Advisory Panel to the USP Microbiology Subcommittee, and helped develop the Water Conductivity and TOC specifications used by USP and adopted world-wide as well as coauthor USP´s comprehensive "water bible´, Chapter "Water for Pharmaceutical Purposes". As a recognized global expert in contamination and biofilm control in the pharmaceutical setting and accomplished presenter, Dr. Soli speaks at numerous conferences and webinars. He has authored numerous articles in Pharmacopeial Forum and other publications as well as chapters in books and industry guides published by PDA and ISPE.
