SAN JUAN—Whether it's a refresher course in contamination control practices or a technical session on containment in high potent compound processing, CleanRooms Puerto Rico 2003 will be a forum where end users can gain an edge in the ever-changing life sciences world.
“Sixteen of the top 20 drugs sold in the United States and 50 percent of all defribrillators and pacemakers are manufactured in Puerto Rico,” says Mark A. DeSorbo, associate editor of CleanRooms magazine. “And powering those respective manufacturing environments are cleanrooms and contamination control technology—markets that are keeping pace with the island's booming life sciences industries.”
And with this boom comes a demand for not only basic cleanroom courses but comprehensive educational opportunities on current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs), sterile consumables management and modular cleanroom construction for aseptic processing environments.
This premiere event, which will be held Nov. 19-21, at the Caribe Hilton, will consist of 10 sessions from U.S.- and Puerto Rico-based experts offering island as well as global perspectives to contamination control end-users in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device arenas.
Sessions will include: “Fan Filter Units: The Good the Bad and the Ugly;” “Adapting to Current Parenteral Manufacturing Challenges;” and “Incorporating Standards and Practices into a Cleanroom Management Program.”
“This conference has been programmed to hit right at the heart of the most pertinent contamination control issues facing the island's life sciences manufacturers,” says Michael Levans, chief editor of CleanRooms. “We've offered something for every level of end user, from basic gowning to discussions on the most sophisticated cleanroom engineering technologies available today.”
