Endotoxin Remediation Strategies

04/19/2018, 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM

Technical Conference Stage 4, Booth 1477, Exhibit Hall

Microbial contamination of process equipment and water systems is a concern for pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical device industries. Microbial contamination with Gram negative bacteria, often found in low level biofilm populations, can lead to out-of-specification endotoxin levels in intermediate and final product. Endotoxin contamination can lead to costly delays in production, product loss and regulatory issues. This presentation will review common endotoxin remediation steps as well as discuss biofilm remediation strategies and preventive maintenance activities of stainless steel surfaces which are often identified as the root cause of elevated endotoxin levels. Several case studies from different manufacturing processes will also be shared during the presentation.
