Last year, the FDA published its draft guidance, officially titled "Contract Manufacturing Arrangements for Drugs: Quality Agreements." Here are some of the highlights.
Featured Focus: QA/QC
An Optical Particle Counter Calibration Standard And What It Means To Cleanroom Owners
By Tony Harrison and Bob Latimer, Hach Ultra Analytics
ISO 21501 is a new family of standards describing the instruments and calibration requirements for determining particle size distribution using light interaction methods. It represents the culmination of work by instrumentation manufacturers and industry users and comes at a critical time for the life sciences industry, with the increasing trend for real-time air particle monitoring in cleanrooms using light-scattering air particle counters.

WHITE PAPER: Advanced Leak Test Methods
By Hemi Sagi, Director, ATC, Inc.
Before new technologies were available to directly measure very small leaks, most leak measurements were done indirectly. Direct mass leak flow measurement has many advantages.  It is independent of part volume or configuration, and it's not sensitive to temperature changes.
