Track 3 - Biopharma Manufacturing Efficiencies & Improvements
Integrated VPHP Decontamination Systems: The Emerging Utility
Speaker: John Klostermyer, Application Project Manager
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

This presentation will review the main points and add practical advice and case studies based on the article with the same title published in November-December 2017 Issue of Pharmaceutical Engineering, pg 52 – 56.

Content includes concepts and examples of how vapor phase hydrogen peroxide gas can be included into a facility as a utility. How 35% H2O2 can be safely and reproducibly converted to a gas and delivered to decontaminate any enclosure via protocols stored in the building automation system. This emerging technology will impact current methods of decontamination that are labor intensive, prone to human error and less efficient in terms of chemical use.

Main points include:

  • Clearly defining the aseptic process capturing it in a URS.
  • Pros and cons of manual, integrated and portable systems
  • People and skill-sets needed to implement
  • Review of common installations with cycle times
  • Aseptic and containment environments
  • Interfacing with the building automation system
  • Best management practices
  • Common mistakes
  • System validation
  • Safety
  • Frequently asked questions
