From Theory to Practice:  the Design, Control & Monitoring of Single-Use Systems (SUS) for Integrity Assurance

The increasing use of single-use systems (SUS) in critical cGMP applications has made integrity assurance a critical quality attribute for both suppliers and end-users of single-use systems. Join BPSA for an engaging panel discussion on Tuesday, October 31 at 10am ET to learn more.

The panel will discuss:

  • the findings from the new BPSA Technical Guide on SUS Integrity Assurance (Volume 2)
  • current standards and regulations impacting integrity assurance in SUS
  • case studies illustrating integrity assurance principles as well as practical industry experience
  • tools and technologies that can be used to build an integrity control strategy, including testing, and other aspects of integrity assurance in SUS
