Iyer-200Closed Processing and Sanitizing Temporary Openings

Kavita Ramalingam Iyer, Senior Specialist, Global Regulatory Affairs, Vaccine-CMC, Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
Full Presentation: 8:45 am, Thurs. Oct. 29, 2015

Hear from Dr. Iyer on her work with the BioPhorum Operations Group (BPOG) and the Biomanufacturing, Training and Education Center (BTEC) on closed systems in manufacturing biopharmaceuticals. With new technologies, isolation of biomanufacturing can exist in a controlled, non-classified space without posing contamination risk. The purpose of the collaboration between BPOG and BTEC is to demonstrate the restoration of previously closed systems back to closed through effective sanitization using chemical agents rather than steam.
