Several reports on degradation of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) involving microwaves, UV or γ-rays have been published. Rheological studies also show that Hyaluronic Acid (HA) solutions degrade at high temperature: viscosity of the solutions decreases in time as a function of temperature. Therefore, the thermal sterilization treatment of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) solutions represents a great challenge. […]
Prefilled syringes offer several advantages over traditional packaging in vials. For example, microbial contamination is minimized due to less manipulation.This presentation discusses a method for sterilizing PFSs through a moist heat process, the most common and approved method used by pharmaceutical facilities for this type of products. The main issues to consider while sterilizing PFSs […]
The purpose of this Fedegari Technical Note, firstly distributed in 1988 and perseveringly revised, is to clarify the nature of F0 and its related parameters (D, z, PNSU/SAL), and to explain their use and limits for the setting, adjustment, control and validation of moist-heat sterilization processes. The F0 algorithm was first introduced in 1968 in […]
A case study of hydrogen peroxide penetration through the load packaging: a customer required support for «A Package Integrity Verification» which involved all the samples and consumables inside the Sterility Test Isolator.
