There is a clear trend In the pharmaceutical industry from small to large molecule based drugs. With the move of drugs from research to development and manufacturing compliance becomes more and more important. Scientists and and analysts working in biopharmaceutical laboratories  should be aware of specific requirements . US and most international countries have regulations with specific sections for laboratories. However, regulations only tell you what to do but not how to implement. So there are many questions.

Key Questions related to Regulated Biopharmaceutical are:

  • What are the most important FDA and international regulations and guidelines?
  • When in drug product developments does each regulation apply?
  • Is drug discovery regulated?
  • What are the key differences between regulated and non-regulated laboratories?
  • Which procedures do we need?
  • Which laboratory records should be retained for how long?
  • What and how to validate methods and qualify equiment
  • How to most effectively implement compliance on laboratories?
  • How to best prepare for FDA inspections
  • What are the incremental costs of compliance?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. This semimar is intended to introduce biochemists and biologists working in biopharmaceutical development and quality control laboratories to FDA and equivalent international requirements. It is also useful for quality managers and staff and for everybody else involved in the registration process of biopharmaceuticals. The seminar will also give strategies and specific recommendations for regulated laboratories. In addition attendees will get tool kits for effective implementation. ..

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Key difference between regulated and non-regulated laboratories
  • The most important regulations and guidelines related to biopharmaceutical laboratories
  • The compliance "hot-spots" the FDA investigators look for during inspections
  • Regulations as they apply to different lifecycle phases: GLP, GCP, cGMP
  • Requirements along the sample workflow, from sampling to testing, data evaluation, reporting and data archiving
  • Qualification of equipment and validation of analytical methods
  • Eight essential steps for effective implementation
  • Internal audits as an ideal preparation for FDA inspections
  • Incremental Costs of Compliance
