Ms. Thomas has over two decades of cGMP hands-on industry experience in both pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing operations.  Her experience covers all Quality Systems; as well as, all areas of validation; including, process/product validation, facilities validation, CSV and 21 CFR Part 11, test method validation, equipment/automated processes and cleaning validation.

Utilizing strategic thinking, risk-based approaches, and Lean principles, she has demonstrated success in steering and managing complex projects within the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.

This course will provide an overview of the requirements for aseptic and bulk manufacturing operations, including facility design, contamination controls, and acceptable personnel behaviors.

Cleanroom classifications and the techniques for proper cleaning and disinfection are presented; along with a high-level overview of microbiology in regards to cleanroom environmental monitoring and the associated impact on product and patient health and safety. This course will also review the guidance provided in USP <1116> to ensure compliance with regulatory expectations are met.

Areas Covered

Topic 1 :   Basic Micro Review

  • The role of environmental monitoring
  • Types & sources of microorganisms
  • The impact of microorganisms on the product and patient health and safety

Topic 2 :  Review of Aseptic Processing Basics

  • Cleanliness classifications
  • Process differences between aseptically produced and terminally sterilized product
  • Relation of manufacturing and handling procedures to sources of product contamination
  • The differences between and the purposes of cleaning, disinfection, and sanitization
  • Proper cleaning techniques
  • The role of isolator technology

Topic 3 :  Review of Clean Area Behaviors

  • Personnel gowning requirements
  • Good clean area behaviors/practices
  • Practices to avoid – and why
  • Review site-specific EM/aseptic behavior observations/risks & ask attendees to brainstorm ways to change/improve/eliminate these behaviors & risks

Topic 4 :  Aseptic Validation

  • The purpose of media fills, and elements critical to their success

Course Level - Basic / Intermediate
