Webinar: Media Selection Made Easy

Selecting the right media for your aseptic process simulations

In pharmaceutical manufacturing, product safety is vital. Aseptic processing simulations or media fill tests are performed to ensure that your facility produces microbiologically safe parenteral drugs.

In this webinar, our media fill experts will give an overview of what to consider when selecting media for aseptic process simulations, in particular:

  • Regulatory requirements in the US and the EU (including the changes to GMP Annex 1)
  • User requirement specification (URS) for equipment and instruments

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what the regulations say about media fill tests
  • Real world examples of problems we can face with media fill tests
  • Recognize the key challenges of selecting the right media for media fill tests
  • The solutions we provide to overcome those challenges
