Webinar On Sampling: How Large a Sample Do I Need? Determining the Right Size for Accurate, Cost Effective Results

  April 15, 2015  

Compliance Trainings, Canada

Description :

The Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries are going through tremendous changes that have been increased by the recent global financial challenges. The FDA is promoting the use of Quality-by-Design (QbD) as an approach for helping companies speed up development and improve their operations. In addition the FDAs new Process Validation Guidance promotes Continued Process Verification. Sampling is an essential element of both process and product development and continued process verification. This raises the question “How Large a Sample Do I Need?”

This webinar provides some practical and useful answers to this question. Methods for determining appropriate sample sizes in raw materials acceptance, finished product release, process and product development experimentation and process monitoring for process stability and capability is discussed. A comparison is made of the square root (n)+1 sampling rule with the ANSI Z1.4 sampling system for process monitoring including incoming raw materials, in-process manufacturing and finished product. The value of a systems approach to sampling and practical tips, traps and guideline for sampling is discussed. The presentation includes portable methods for making power calculations for experimental design. The concepts and methods involved are introduced and illustrated with pharmaceutical and biotech case studies and examples.
