Please note that this training course will take place in person and has hands-on lab activities. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required.
Based on PDA Technical Report No. 1: Validation of Moist Heat Sterilization Processes: Cycle Design, Development, Validation and Ongoing Control, this training course will provide a foundational understanding of sterilization science that can be applied in the selection of a cycle design approach, sterilization process development, process performance qualification and ongoing process control. Hands-on activities will include actual sterilization cycle operations and execution with data review. The class will then participate in brainstorming over possible solutions to challenges. If the attendee can bring an example of the load item, it will be integrated into the autoclave execution.
Participants will also receive a free copy of PDA Technical Report No. 1: Validation of Moist Heat Sterilization Processes: Cycle Design, Development, Qualification and Ongoing Control.
