Changing the Paradigm: Moving to In-Process Release Testing
05th February 2021 | 10:00am EST | Presented by Scott Weiss, Director, Industrial Microbiology at Johnson & Johnson |BOOK FREE SEAT FOR THIS WEBINAR
Changing the paradigm – moving to in-process release testing is a presentation to explore the possibilities of the future. We will discuss limitations of traditional methods of monitoring and release, and investigate the existing challenges of current rapid method technologies. What are we missing? If we change our way of thinking around the acceptable limitations of traditional methods and look to the future with existing technologies and those on the horizon, using an end-to-end mindset, we can build the better mouse trap within our processes. We can identify key markers with real time monitoring, using big data, so that by the end of the manufacturing process there is no need for final product microbiological quality testing.
