WEBINAR: BPOG 2020 & USP 665 – Extractables Testing of Single-Use Systems
Title: BPOG 2020 & USP 665 – Extractables Testing of Single-Use Systems
Date: Tuesday, March 15, 2022
Time: 11:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time
Duration: 1 hour
This webinar will explore how to conduct effective extractables and leachables (E&L) testing on plastic process materials used during pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing. It will delve into the new BPOG and USP best practices and examine how best to avoid potential risks to the safety, efficacy and stability of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.

This presentation will summarize the key elements of E&L studies carried out on plastic process materials used during pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing. It will examine the recently published BioPhorum Operations Group’s 2020 best practices guide on extractables testing of polymeric single-use components used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. It will also delve into the significant new chapters the US Pharmacopeia (USP) plans on publishing this May – <665> and <1665> – as well as analytical considerations associated with the standard extraction protocols recommended by both BPOG and USP. In addition, several case studies on E&L analyses of plastic process materials will be presented. Click here to register for the webinar.
