cGMPs A-to-Z and YOU!

Who should take this course?
Everyone in the biopharmaceutical industry will benefit from this course, including operators, support staff, and maintenance personnel.

How this course is designed?
This course is designed to help you understand what the current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) are and why they are so important to the patients, the Pharmaceutical Industry, and YOU! Please join us for a review of the cGMPs, how they relate to work in cGMP facilities, and how you can help ensure they are met. 


Who should take these courses?
The target audience for this course is a person who already possesses a general understanding of the industry and is looking for an advanced exploration into the world of bioprocessing products.

How this course is designed?
These courses are tailored to the specific needs of the audience. Bioprocess technical topics will be covered. Other industry topics, such as Filtration and Single-Use, are available for discussion. Previous course topics have included: cGMP, BioProcessing 101, BioProcessing Upstream-Downstream, and Facility Design. Custom course design, onsite training and development as well as group discounts are available.


Who should take this course?
This course is ideal for Bioprocessing End-users, Process Engineers, and Maintenance Professionals.

How this course is designed?
This program provides a review of considerations when selecting a seal for use in biopharmaceutical processes. Different process applications will be discussed and their potential to affect seals and diaphragms. Discussion will focus on Hygienic Clamp Fittings, O-Rings, and Diaphragm Valves. Different materials and configurations will be compared, as well as their potential failure modes, to help the Engineer select the best component for the intended application. This course focuses on product training available for gaskets, filters, diaphragms, hoses, and tubing. During the program we will cover:

  • review of currently available product alternatives with discussion about pros and cons of each
  • installation procedures
  • common failure mode comparisons
  • material selection for your process
