Visual inspection continues to be an important element of the manufacturing process and the quality assurance of injectable products. Product inspection provides necessary information for lot release, and, coupled with defect identification, contributes to a strategy of continuous process improvement. Past topics have included selection and qualification of human inspectors, validation of automated inspection systems, container integrity and inspection, particle identification and characterization, recent regulatory activity and country specific inspection requirements.

The 2017 Visual Inspection Forum will provide case studies, explore new USP chapters<790> and <1790>, and discuss new developments in the field of visual inspection, including contributions to a basic understanding of the sampling and inspection process, practical aspects of manual and automated methods, and the regulatory and compendial requirements that govern them.

The meeting will feature an exhibition where attendees can see the latest in commercial inspection hardware and discuss production needs with key suppliers of inspection systems and services.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this event, participants will be able to:

  • Identify particulate inspection methods and equipment
  • Identify critical parameters that affect the inspection process
  • Develop state-of-the-art methodologies which reflect current industry knowledge
