 SHORT COURSE 11: MATERIALS IN CONTACT WITH BIOLOGICS: UNDERSTANDING RISK TO QUALITY AND SAFETY


Materials that contact biologics during manufacturing, storage and final packaging can pose risks to biopharmaceutical quality. This in-depth course reviews the regulatory requirements, types of materials used and material chemistry, and then examines the strategies for prediction and risk assessment of potential threats to quality and safety of biologics drug products. The course reviews development of a successful analytical strategy for single-use components, container closure components and risk posed by leachables.

Topic to be covered:
The Types of Materials Used in the Manufacture and Storage of Biologics

  • Manufacturing Components
  • Container Closure Components

The Regulatory Landscape

  • CBER, ICH, USP, PQRI

Understanding Material Chemistry

  • Plastic, Rubber, Glass, Metal

Strategy for Assessing Suitability of Components for Intended Use
Manufacturing Components: Single-Use and Disposables

  • Conditions of Use
  • System Compatibility
  • Critical Components
  • Critical Assessments

Container Closure Components/ Primary Systems

  • Conditions of Use
  • System Compatibility
  • Critical Components
  • Critical assessments

Interaction of Biologics with Product Contact Materials
