This course is designed to provide a microbiology-focused education about all aspects of water systems and how biofilm manages to thrive there. Prior microbiological education or training, though a plus, is not a requirement because engineers and other non-biologists also need this training if they are involved with any aspect of water systems. The instructor will provide the necessary background needed to understand this very important subject matter. This understanding is essential to the proper design, validation, operation, monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting, and excursion investigations of a high purity water system. Without this understanding, water system control consists of a set of rules that often don't work and can cause very costly system downtime or even product recalls, and leaves the user without a clue as to what went wrong or how to effectively fix it so it doesn't recur.
Much fear and hype exists with pharmaceutical biofilms, especially those in water systems. Long term biofilm control cannot be achieved from a blind set of hand-me-down rules for design and operation. One must truly understand biofilm to be able to control it. And because every water system is unique, understanding how biofilm is trying to grow in your system, which could be different than any other system. This course will give you that understanding that is translatable to any system, so that uneventful microbial control is possible. Without this understanding you will quickly find that blind rules for operation (and design) eventually fail to work, and the consequences of failure will far exceed the educational costs that could have prevented it.
Who Will Benefit:
This 2-day course is particularly relevant to managers, supervisors, and operatives taking on new responsibilities related to water, but also for experienced water personnel to learn the "true" whys behind what they do and perhaps better ways of doing things. Specific positions that would benefit are:
Day 1 Schedule
What Makes Water Systems Have Microbial Quality Problems
Successful Sanitization Approaches for Trouble-Free Water Quality
Water System Validation by Logic Instead of Tradition
Implementing Changes to a Validated System
Reducing Water Microbial Excursions & Improving Investigations
Day 2 Schedule
Understanding and Controlling Endotoxin
Harmonizing vs Optimizing Water Microbial Testing for System Quality Control
Microbial Enumeration Issues with High Purity Water Systems
Water System Investigation "How-To's" and Example Case Studies
What USP Does and Doesn't Say about PW, WFI, Pure Steam and Micro Issues
