Why Should You Attend:
Microbiological Out of Specifications (OOS) may occur with the production of both non-sterile and sterile products. They may occur as early in the process as with Incoming Raw Materials and extend throughout In-process and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) phases to the final product.
With the advent of the revised USP<61> Microbial Examination of Nonsterile Products: Microbial Enumeration Test, a new latitude in result interpretation has come to the fore; however, one needs to understand how to utilize this inherent variation of USP<61> with Out of Trend (OOT) and Out Of Specification (OOS).
Microbial data deviations or non-conformances periodically may occur as well as OOT, OOS and Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA). However, unlike chemical analytical deviations, all microbial non-conformances to include OOS and CAPA investigations may require as many as six months to complete these studies based on their degree of difficulty and additional laboratory tests that may be required.
Sterility testing practices (USP<71> Sterility Tests) comprise the historical "gold standard" for releasing pharmaceutical and biotechnology products as sterile. Because extensive contamination is often required before a sterility test fails, regulatory agencies require initial and then periodic media fills as well as smoke studies, observation of technicians, and extensive environmental studies to add additional confirmation to sterility assurance prior to the commencement of aseptic filling. Therefore, OOS may not only directly examine sterility, but all of the results that indirectly impact it.
