Pharmaceutical Water Best Practices
This best practice collection from Pharmaceutical Technology discusses the purity of pharmaceutical water. It includes two case studies. The first explains how for a pharmaceutical manufacturer, on-line bioburden measurement provides process control and real-time monitoring of water quality. The case concerns a leading biotechnology company and how it improved their processes with METTLER TOLEDO Thornton’s on-line 7000RMS™Microbial Detection Analyzer.
Furthermore, the best practice collection discusses that to prevent bacterial growth, pharmaceutical-grade water systems require precise monitoring and control of TOC. A European producer of pure water systems trusts on-line Thornton instrumentation for ensuring customers of consistent water quality.
Further topics covered in this best practices collection are:
- Understanding USP <1231> Water for Pharmaceutical Use; A discussion of various water types, as defined by the United States Pharmacopeia.
- Testing Water for Pharmaceutical Use; USP <1231> describes analytical and microbiology testing required for different types of pharmaceutical water
