Recent Warning Letters Review for Preparation of an Aseptic Processing Inspection
Author: Jeanne Moldenhauer
Item Number: 1572
The focus of this book is to provide a way to prepare for a FDA inspection of an aseptic facility by reviewing Warning Letters recently issued to pharmaceutical companies. The number of Warning Letters issued by FDA has been rising in recent years. The FDA publishes Warning Letters in its Electronic Reading Room available on its website (www.fda.gov). The problem is that it takes time to download and review the documents and look at them cohesively for their impact on your operation. This book has taken these observations and segregated them according to the applicable GMP requirements, making them easier to look at in a systematic fashion.
Based upon lengthy industry experience, Jeanne Moldenhauer has done the work for you by reviewing all relevant recent Warning Letters for aseptic processing topics and has identified areas of focus and interest for investigators, some of the types of issues deemed important by the investigator, and potential issues that may be applicable at an aseptic processing site.
This invaluable guide is a must read for all personnel involved in any way with the pharmaceutical aseptic processing inspection process.

Quality by Design Putting Theory Into Practice
Author: Siegfried Schmitt
Item Number: 1576
This book is written with all stakeholders in mind; the regulatory agencies and the healthcare industry, including their suppliers. As the process of adoption, implementation and interpretation of Quality by Design is currently the key driver to help industry bring products to market faster and at the same time provide maximum assurance of product quality. Though pharmaceutical companies need to abide the law and therefore comply with the applicable laws, rules and regulations, their goal must be to be profitable. A business case must therefore not only outline how compliance can be achieved, maintained and improved, but also how this will result in a positive financial impact.
Practical Aseptic Processing Fill and Finish, Volume I and II
Author: Jack Lysfjord
Item Number: 1577
Aseptic Processing technology has changed with the use of Advanced Aseptic Processing techniques such as: Blow fill seal (BFS) isolators and Restricted Access Barrier Systems (RABS). By becoming informed of the current state of the art, product contamination can be greatly improved. Products are changing with the increasing dominance of biological and biotech products being produced and it is imperative that manufacturers keep pace with these changes that can save time and money, improve productivity and increase safety. We all need to stay on top of "what is current?" Jack Lysfjord, together with more than 30 global subject matter experts, contributes invaluable pragmatic knowledge to this pursuit.
