The presence of foreign particulate matter and other contaminants can halt the production of drug products for weeks, even months, until the contaminant and the source are identified and the issue is fully resolved. This webinar recording examines how a new, advanced problem solving approach called pharmaceutical forensics can help to quickly identify foreign particulate matter and answer questions as to how, where and when it originated.

Highlighted Topics Covered
