Controlling Impurities in Pharma Waters

Enhancing Quality and Safety in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Without proper impurity control, pharmaceutical manufacturers risk compromising the safety and efficacy of their products. Microbial and organic impurities can enter water systems at various points in the manufacturing process and impact quality and safety.

Misunderstandings surrounding controlling impurities in pharma waters can lead to improper measurement and treatment approaches.

It is a common belief that chemical and microbiological properties in Water for Injection (WFI) and Purified Water (PW) are the same in pharmaceutical water systems. However, this is far from the truth. These properties react differently and are distributed unevenly in storage and distribution loops, which can have different effects on the health of the water system.

In this live roundtable discussion, we will dispel the most common myths about microbes and organics and controlling impurities in pharma waters. We will discuss the differences between chemical and microbiological properties in WFI and PW and recommend measurement approaches for each impurity. Additionally, we will cover how to maintain a healthy water loop to ensure high quality and safety in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
