Welcome to MSC Fall Tutorial Workshops

October 10, 2018

Location: Disneyland Hotel

The Measurement Science Conference organizing committee invites you to join us in Anaheim, California for the 2018 Fall Tutorial Workshops. Instructors from the pharmaceutical, aerospace, metrology and other industries will present the following full-day technical programs covering specific disciplines of the measurement sciences.

Courses are $795 each, all inclusive with breakfast, lunch, snacks, and parking.

T01 Monitoring of Multiple Ultrapure Water Parameters/ Temp/Humidity Validation Instrumentation

Pharmaceutical focused course on temperature measurements

Instructor: Jun Bautista, Crosspoint Engineering

Synopsis:

T01 will be presented in  2 (two) half day classes:

Part 1 – Synopsis: “Accurate , Continuous, In-Situ Monitoring of Multiple Ultrapure Water Parameters”

This half day course will feature the use of the Martek Mark 20 and the Mark 22/25 designed  to provide accurate, continuous, in-situ monitoring of multiple ultrapure water parameters as mandated by USP in the production of Water For Injection (WFI). The  Mark 20 provides laboratory, multi-parameter on-line continuous monitoring of high purity water. The specific parameters that will be covered are the accurate on-line and benchtop measurement of Conductivity, pH, Dissolved Oxygen (D02), Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) -REDOX, and Acid /Caustic Concentration. The second part of this course will highlight the theory, practical, and hands-on use of the Mark 22/25 for the accurate, continuous, and in-situ monitoring of ultrapure water conductivity and pH measurements. Primarily designed to reduce the necessity of numerous and unnecessary in-plant and on-line grab samples, the result of which will represent significant dollar and resource savings and eventually have a positive impact on the Cost of Goods (COGs).

 

Part 2 – Synopsis: “New  Innovations in Temp/Humidity Validation Instruments”

This half day course will feature the theory and hands-on validation/use of the new Ellab validation equipment and the associated software, Valsuite Pro. Designed to replace the aging and near obsolete Kaye Validator 2000 (V2K), an introduction and hands-on course instruction will be provided. An extra added feature to the course will be the demonstration of wireless dataloggers and their practical applications in validations and product stability testing.


 

 

T02 Uncertainty Measurement

Understanding of Type A and Type B components and the use of Test Uncertainty Ratios versus Test Accuracy Ratios …

Instructor: Dr. Dennis Jackson, NSWC

Synopsis: “New  Innovations in Temp/Humidity Validation Instruments”

This half day course will feature the theory and hands-on use of the new Ellab validation equipment and the associated software, Valsuite Pro. Designed to replace the aging and near obsolete Kaye Validator 2000 (V2K), an introduction and hands-on course instruction will be provided. An extra added feature to the course will be the demonstration of wireless dataloggers and their practical applications in validations and product stability testing.


 

 

T03 ISO/IEC 17025:2017 GAP Tutorial

An in-depth overview of the ISO / EC 17025 standards used by calibration laboratories worldwide…

Instructor: Pam Wright, A2LA Quality Manager

Synopsis:

The most popular standard for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories – ISO/IEC 17025 –was updated in 2017 and is now in its third edition. This new version considers the types of processes and changes for laboratory environments for the 21st century. It is also more aligned with ISO 9001, with the introduction of new concepts, such as risk-based thinking and flexible processes. This one-day tutorial will provide information on the gap between the legacy version and the new version of ISO/IEC 17025:2017.

After this tutorial you will be able to:

  • Properly identify:
    • How ISO/IEC 17025:2017 processes are assessed;
    • Those procedures and practices that were removed from the standard;
    • Those practices that are new;
    • How risks and opportunities are assessed;
    • Expectations for implementing impartiality and confidentiality;
  • Adequately explain the difference for assessment of Option A versus Option B;
  • Correctly determine the validity of findings for at least 75% of the examples.
