The advanced course is a three day laboratory course of 30% lecture and 70% hands-on training. The coursework includes measurement of unspecific adsorption on different filter membrane polymers and the implication of such adsorption for any filtration process. Since filter sizing and optimal filter combination choice is essential for biopharmaceutical filtration processes, the course also includes filterability trials, sizing and scaling. Interactively, groupwork will include determining which filter combination is optimal for particular case studies detailed by the faculty. In addition, integrity tests for liquid and gas filters will be performed, including trouble shooting to determine reasons for integrity test failures and counter measurements. Product wet integrity test limits will be determined in another segment of the hands-on training to be able to establish the correlation between product and water wet integrity test limits. The combination of theoretical and practical work makes this course a highly valuable experience for end-users, trainers and regulators.
