Risk-based Approach to Evaluate Nitrosamines and Elemental Impurities from Single-use Components



WEBINAR

Residual impurities can potentially be introduced into the biopharmaceutical manufacturing process at a variety of stages. Recently, nitrosamines and elemental impurities have been a concern for regulatory agencies. These impurities originate from various raw materials, process chemicals, and manufacturing equipment. Single-use systems (SUS) incorporate a number of plastic components. A key concern related to plastic SUS is potential leachable compounds from contact materials. It’s essential to obtain information on leachables as well as nitrosamines and elemental impurities. This webinar looks into how to evaluate nitrosamine and elemental impurity risk related to SUS and filters.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Understand the potential of nitrosamine contamination
  • Learn how to leverage industry, supplier, and scientific expertise to assess the risk of elemental impurities taking advantage of ICH Q3D guidance on biologic drug manufacturing
  • See a case study using Emprove® Elemental Impurities to help you conduct an efficient elemental impurities safety evaluation D46
