Description

PDA is very pleased to announce the launch of the Parenteral Drug Association’s fourth standard!  We are seeking volunteer participants to assist in developing, writing, and fine tuning the following proposal: Phage Retention Nomenclature Rating for Small and Large Virus Retentive Filters (new standard).

Scope

Virus retentive filters are a key product safety tool to ensure that biopharmaceuticals and plasma derived medicines are safe from viral contamination. This is a practical standard approach to categorizing virus retentive filters. This initiative would benefit the filter industry, end users, regulators, and patients. It would help improve biotech and plasma derived product manufacturing and reduce risk to patients from a viral safety perspective.

This proposed American National Standard (ANS) was presented by Dr. Kurt Brorson, Vice President, Technical, PAREXEL International.

  • Filter firms,
  • Biotech firms,
  • Plasma derived product manufacturers,
