About this course

Sterilisation by moist heat (i.e. dry, saturated, steam) is at the heart of many sterile product manufacturing operations, whether it is in the preparation of equipment and components or in the terminal sterilisation of filled product that will tolerate sterilisation by heat. This one day workshop will suit anyone who needs to know more about the design, qualification and day-to-day control of steam sterilisation. The workshop is equally suited to the engineer specifying, installing and maintaining a steriliser, the production manager who has to train and manage staff using steam sterilisation or the QA/QP reviewing sterilisation cycles and making judgements on cycles that appear not to conform.

During this one day seminar we will cover…

  • The microbiology of sterilisation using steam
  • Design and selection of autoclave cycle types
  • The quality of steam for sterilisation
  • The use and abuse of biological indicators to validate and control steam sterilisation
  • Good autoclaving practice
