In this webinar, potential challenges during the implementation of a bio-fluorescent particle counting system will be discussed, sharing the perspective of a consortium of four industry-working groups on navigating these challenges.
Bio-fluorescent particle counting （BFPC）technologies use the detection of intrinsic fluorescence to continuously enumerate bioburden levels in air or water samples. The reported unit is commonly referred to as an auto-fluorescence unit （AFU）, which is not dependent upon growth like the traditional method. Examples of challenges include the perceived risk of regulatory inspectional observations and lack of acceptance, internal communication and acceptance, qualification strategy, and validation of a modern method that reports in a non-growth-based unit.
Information will be shared on ways to navigate common challenges encountered during the implementation of new technologies, on a BFPC modern microbiological method, and an industry working group collaboration that offers support to the industry with the implementation and use of modern microbial methods.
Since its inception in 2004, BioPhorum has become the open and trusted environment where senior leaders of the biopharmaceutical industry come together to openly share and discuss the emerging trends and challenges facing their industry.
