Design Challenges in sterile manufacturing

Design Challenges in sterile manufacturing

Published on: Thursday, 19 February 2015

Over 100 delegates attended the recent seminar in CIT on sterile manufacturing.  Four presentations were delivered:

Preparation of water for pharmaceutical processes

Hugh Hodkinson, DPS Engineering


Sean Coomey, Janssen Biologics

Ensuring staff safety in sterile manufacturing

Gina Halligan, Astellas

Ensuring product integrity in sterile manufacturing

John Daly, MSD Brinny

Lots of questions, lots of discussion in the sessions as well as networking during the breaks.  The talks were well presented, interesting, informative and stimulating.  Mnay thanks to our speakers.  The opportunities for discussion were invaluable.

Thanks to Dr. Abina Crean from UCC’s School of Pharmacy for chairing the event and, particularly, Cilian O Suilleabhain for organising it.

This was a joint Engineers Ireland and IChemE All Ireland Member Group event, with sponsorship from ISPE Ireland Affiliate.
