Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will dispel mistaken paradigms regarding the risk based approach to introduction of rapid microbial detection systems for water systems. Attendees will understand how to validate and transfer LIF method and how to validate LIF instrument against currently used methods.

Why Should You Attend:

If you are a professional who is involved in planning, design, purchase, qualification, validation and continuous lifecycle of rapid microbial detection instruments in purified water systems, this webinar will demystify an entire lifecycle risk-based approach to installation and validation of the new and exciting method of microbial detection which will allow you to assess microbial water quality instantaneously and continuously.

In the age when regulators expect from pharmaceutical industry risk-based decisions, this webinar is a must for those professionals who are responsible for seamless, non-stop operation of water system that continuously meets compendial specification. In addition, it will offer regulatory view on implementation of rapid microbial detection instruments.
