Introduction to Quality Control Testing course provides a high-level general overview of the role of quality control testing and its importance in Biopharmaceutical production.
Quality control testing is a GMP requirement for any type of pharmaceutical production. This course provides the context for this testing in a biopharmaceutical production process, describing the complexity of biopharmaceuticals, potential process sampling points for testing and some of the key regulatory documents concerning quality control testing. With this, this course also offers an overview of some of the key analytical methods used for this testing of biopharmaceuticals.
In addition to being a GMP requirement, quality control testing is essential part of the process, this is sadly demonstrated by some previous historical and recent devastating incidences, some of which are described in this course. Quality control testing has progressed since these events described, and continues to do so, as is outlined in this course. Overall, this course provides an appreciation of the role of quality control testing and the direction it is heading.
