ISPE to Present Conferences Focused on 
Pharmaceutical Aseptic Processing

—Events to explore global evolution of aseptic processing in tracks focused on 
barrier isolation, vaccines, and technology innovations—

(TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, 01 February 2012)ISPE announced today that it will present two conferences focused on the global evolution of aseptic processing in the pharmaceutical industry. The two-day events will address the challenges companies face in producing sterile pharmaceutical products. The first conference will take place in Tampa, Florida USA on 29 February – 1 March 2012. A similar program, with a strong focus on European concerns, will be offered in Frankfurt, Germany on 26 – 27 March 2012.

Attendees will learn from leading manufacturing experts on barrier isolation, vaccine manufacturing, and technology innovations related to aseptic processing. Each track will draw heavily from the recently released, FDA-reviewed ISPE Baseline® Guide: Sterile Product Manufacturing Facilities (Second Edition), the industry’s go-to Guide for aseptic processing. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the Guide, a US$465 value.

“As the technical voice of manufacturing and engineering in the pharmaceutical industry, ISPE is committed to presenting programs that facilitate relevant dialogue and the sharing of best practices among industry leaders, manufacturing experts and leading regulators,” said ISPE’s new President and CEO Nancy Berg. “At a time when manufacturing operations are under tremendous pressures to improve effectiveness, deliver quality and reduce costs, ISPE is responding with new programs and conference formats that feature dynamic and focused session content. Our events are developed to deliver information, discussion and networking that lead to new ideas, problem-solving and process improvement concepts that, when applied, have positive bottom-line results.”

Titled “Global Evolution of Aseptic Processing: Implementing Risk-Based Manufacturing Solutions,” the conferences will feature three keynote presentations from recognized industry experts in aseptic processing:

  • William B. Wiederseim, President & CEO, PharmaBioSource, Inc., USA
    The Market for Parenteral Products and Facilities
