USP Chapter 797: One of New Contamination Control: Topics at ESTECH 2007
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL | Posted on February 15th, 2007
The American Society of Health Systems Pharmacists (ASHP) recommends all "persons who compound sterile preparations should exercise their professional judgment to obtain the education and training necessary to prove their competence in managing sterile compounding facilities and in sterile compounding processes and quality assurance." A new seminar and panel discussion, presented by CleanRooms magazine and members of the 797 committee, will be providing the latest information on areas of contamination control implementation through US Pharmacopeia (USP) Chapter 797, Pharmaceutical Compounding: Sterile Preparations. This is the first set of such standards issued by the USP.
As technologies advance, changes are made to cleanrooms, without considering their impact. Risk management and disaster recovery techniques are important to any cleanroom. This new seminar titled Risk Assessment, Disaster Recovery will focus on the risks, both foreseen and unforeseen, that may impact cleanroom operations, as well as disaster recovery plans upon exposure of these risks.
A number of other contamination topics will be discussed by industry experts. The seminars include topics on Contamination Control for Nanotechnology; Cleanroom Garment Testing; Cleanroom Design and Performance Across Industries; Electrostatics and Microcontamination in Cleanrooms; HEPA, ULPA, and Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) Filters; Particle Monitoring; and AMC and Surface Molecular Contamination (SMC) Contamination Control Issues.
