The bacterial endotoxin test (BET) has been in use in the pharmaceutical industry for almost 40 years. As the technology gets more sophisticated and as compliance requirements become more focused, we all need to be assured that we haven't lost sight of the basics of the test. This miniseries looks at the "rules" for the routine use of the test including basic calculations, laboratory qualification, analyst qualification, routine assays and monitoring functions.
In the first webinar, we cover basic calculations and compare the elements of USP <85>, "Bacterial Endotoxin Test" to the provisions of the 1987 FDA Guideline to provide a strategy for laboratory control that meets all requirements. The second webinar outlines a way to view GMP issues that surround the use of the test including the investigation of OOS results and the use of the test as a tool for raw material screening, process validation and the the monitoring of established processes.
The objectives of this webinar are as follows:
Objectives for this webinar:
Laboratory Analysts, Laboratory Managers, QA Professionals (Auditors, Compliance, Data Review), Manufacturing professionals
