Issues to be covered
This course covers basic theory and practical applications for the removal / inactivation of virus contamination in biopharmaceuticals and biological materials. The course format is a combination of lecture and discussion experiences. Various orthogonal methods of viral inactivation/removal will be discussed which includes chromatography, inactivation technologies, e.g., UVC, Solvent/Detergent, and Nanofiltration.

Course attendees will come away with a solid background and understanding of these methodologies, terminology, risk assessment and current regulatory and industry trends.
PREREQUISITES: Basic understanding of life science and microbiology.
