Document SystemsValidation

BIT 230

Chapters 3 and 4 (Huxsoll)

  • Biotech companies coming to GMP like large pharma difficult transition
  • Problems due to:
    • tight budgets
    • limited (trained) personnel
    • R & D scientists only
documentation for cgmp
Documentation for cGMP
  • Provides project planning
  • Record of what and how was done- plus any changes implemented
biotech and documentation
Biotech and Documentation
  • Overlooked in early stages
  • Viewed as cumbersome and time consuming
  • From this, delays in early development occur
  • Need top down commitment to documentation
types of documentation
Types of Documentation
  • Early on, scope and project goals
    • timeline or Gantt chart
gantt chart
Gantt chart
  • Planning tool
  • timelines showing duration stages of the project in chronological order
  • interrelationship between various stages of the project
  • responsible parties for each phase of the project
  • Figure 3.1, Page 29

    • however, not too rigidly written
    • differ from lab notebooks - HOW?
areas of documentation cont d12
Areas of Documentation cont’d
  • SOPs cont’d - Value
    • while being written, forced to think of problems- may avert costly errors this way
    • standardize technician training
    • minimize misunderstandings about the process
    • if changes are made to the process, SOP history will be available by end user for review
    • tells the user what to record
areas of documentation cont d13
Areas of Documentation cont’d
  • Testing Documents
    • SOPs standardize test methods - include equipment, methods and reagents
    • minimize variation from operator to operator (“pilot error”)
    • include use of positive and negative controls

areas of documentation cont d14
Areas of Documentation cont’d
  • Batch Production Records (BPRs)
    • provide lot information- critical in production (recalls often by lot number)
    • develop lot-specific forms for each appropriate step in the SOP
    • Pages 33-34- CFR-required batch record sections
    • go over batch records given in class

  • need QA tested raw materials (remember, the product is now going into a person!)
  • record expiration date- cannot use 1 day past that date (not so in a research lab)
gmp documents
GMP documents
  • Contain process limits (maintains control of process)
  • limits include process parameters
    • pH
    • temperature
    • volume
    • concentration
    • WHAT are some other limits?
gmp documents23
GMP documents
  • Steps after a process is complete:
    • technician verifies and signs that process is complete
    • supervisor reviews and signs documents
    • independent reviewer QA’s the documents (and the process)
    • Therefore, each document is reviewed 3 times
    • have review document for this process (GETTING the picture about how much writing goes on!)
    • FILE docs when done for safe keeping
misc gmp documents
Misc. GMP Documents
  • Records for preventative maintenance, calibration and usage of equipment used in production
  • Make sure equipment functions same from run to run


Chapter 4

  • Document that a manufacturing process is under control
  • Capable of consistent production of a biopharmaceutical

  • Parts 210 and 211 of GMPs - if FDA thinks drug is tampered they may take action against the producer
  • highly trained FDA personnel to carry out inspections of drug makers
process development
Process Development
  • IF process development weak or absent, inconsistent results will appear during manufacturing runs
  • Involves personnel from validation, QA, QC, manufacturing and engineering
  • Section under change control (page 49)
parameters of process validation
Parameters of Process Validation
  • Validation of utilities
    • proper installation
    • manufacturer’s specs
    • moisture and airborne product contamination

    • conditions differ based process performed in that area (cold, moist, etc.)- e.g. protein purification in a 4ºC room
    • microbiological testing of surfaces, air, etc (do you need clean room facilities?)
    • facility sanitization
parameters of validation cont d37
Parameters of Validation, cont’d
  • Cleaning methods and changeover
    • not only clean surfaces, but document residual detergent levels on washed equipment & surfaces

    • vendor specific D-value so keep that in mind
parameters of validation cont d41
Parameters of Validation, cont’d
  • Media hold challenge
    • length of time a vessel hold a liquid and remain sterile
    • push the procedure to see when it fails

    • evaluate filters themselves
parameters of validation cont d44
Parameters of Validation, cont’d
  • Programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
    • computers that automate the processes - must be validated also
    • hardware
    • software
    • operating system

bulk drug manufacturing
Bulk drug manufacturing
  • Making large batch of drug at once
  • MWCB important - do the cells and DNA remain intact during production
  • perform validation tests for acceptability of starting material
  • History and morphology of cell line, plasmid, and transfection into host cell
  • storage, maintenance and propagation of cell line
  • cell markers
  • tumorigenicity studies
  • expression of endogenous retroviruses
  • test for presence of virus, fungi, bacteria or mycoplasma
mwcb cont d
MWCB cont’d
  • Bacterial production systems check for:
    • carbohydrate use
    • antibiotic resistance
    • contamination
    • sequence and restriction map of plasmid
    • growth rate of host
    • SDS-PAGE of product profile
recovery and purification
Recovery and purification
  • Remove impurities from the drug substance
  • eliminate inadvertent contamination (Flu vaccine)
  • therefore, validate recovery process!
pharmaceutical manufacturing validation
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Validation
  • Similar to biotech manufacturing, but has special issues such as aseptic processing, lyophilization and packaging
  • Aseptic processing
    • aspects of filling of a drug product so that contamination is not introduced
    • fill with cell growth media as a control
pharmaceutical manufacturing validation cont d
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Validation, cont’d
  • Lyophilization
    • freeze drying- extends shelf life and reduces moisture content
    • freeze-dry placebo as control; test several cycle to assure process uniformity
    • filling operation important to duplicate volumes in every vial
pharmaceutical manufacturing validation cont d51
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Validation, cont’d
  • Container/closure integrity
    • components and methods for forming a seal
    • SOPs with as much detail as possible to describe system to produce container seal
    • integrity of container seal under expected storage conditions
    • 2 tests used- USP bacterial challenge test and dye leak challenge test
pharmaceutical manufacturing validation cont d52
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Validation, cont’d
  • Packaging and labeling
    • FDA- up to 30% of product recalls due to mislabeling (label mix-ups)
    • SOPs for quarantine, inspection, release and handling
    • don’t make all labels identical (use varying color and size for different products or strengths
  • Good business sense, not just the law!
