This training course covers the fundamentals of visual inspection methods and their application to injectable products. The detection and identification of visible particles is a key part of the course content, though container and closure defects are discussed as well. Students combine classroom review of current regulatory requirements and inspection methods with hands-on laboratory exercises to develop and practice practical inspection skills. The skills developed through this combination of classroom and laboratory exercises may be applied to manual human inspection, semi-automated and automated machine;inspection methods. This is also an excellent opportunity to discuss your specific inspection questions and; challenges with expert instructors.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand current global regulatory and compendial requirements for visual inspection
  • Understand patient risk associated with visible particles in injections
  • Implement and technically sound and compliant inspection process
  • Assess inspection performance
