Pharma Packaging Considerations for Radiation Processing using Gamma and Electron Beam and Discussion on the New Container Closure Integrity Testing: Mass Extraction
May 20, 2020 I Presenters: John Schlecht and Jennifer Gygi
This webinar is designed to build your foundational knowledge of pharma packaging. The type and method of packaging is an important consideration for radiation processing using gamma and electron beam. This webinar discusses how product packaging and presentation (density, weight and product orientation) can affect routine processing. Examples will be presented how certain considerations are taken into account when developing the product packaging to ensure an effective radiation process. The webinar will also cover mass extraction a relatively new container closure integrity test which is included on the USP 1207 list of approved deterministic CCIT test methods. You will learn the basic methodology behind a mass extraction test, the advantages of mass extraction testing over other CCI methods, and how the test is performed.
