Who Should Attend?
This intensive course is intended for those new to the topics of parenteral product development and aseptic manufacturing and those needing a refresher on the topics as well as those seeking confirmation of acceptability of existing practices. It will be of particular value to those in:
• Research
• Development
• Production
• Quality Assurance and Control

Those who wish to broaden their appreciation of these technologies and review the latest developments, as well as managers who have responsibility for a broader base of activities will find the course of interest.

Course Description
Parenteral product development and aseptic manufacturing can be intimidating to people new to the topics. The approach to formulation and process development is substantially different than for oral and topical medications. Product development and manufacturing must consider how all of the manufacturing processes align to ensure chemical, physical, and microbiological stability with particular attention to proper aseptic technique.

This 18-hour course introduces participants to aseptically manufactured products, routes of administration, and how routes of administration and other requirements affect product development. Interactive discussions are encouraged to ensure questions about the manufacturing processes are raised and different experiences are shared. Demonstrations and practice are offered for gowning, reconstitution of a freeze-dried solid, and preparation of an infusion using proper aseptic technique.
