There is no doubt that for achieving the highest performances with our sterilizers you need to fully understand the process also from a scientific standpoint. This is the reason why we have been teaming up with Jim Agalloco in order to offer you the most effective education.

This year, we are glad to inform you that Jim will hold two different courses in Zurich (Switzerland), covering all the subjects relevant to sterilization and beyond, as following:

Sterilization: Principles and Validation – Monday-Wednesday

The sterilization course covers the entire range of sterilization processes utilized in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries. Sterilization methods, validation practices and related subjects to be covered include: Prerequisites for Sterilization; Microbiology of Sterilization; Use of Biological Indicators; Steam Sterilization for Porous Loads; Terminal Sterilization using Steam; Steam Sterilization-in-Place; Dry Heat Sterilization and Depyrogenation; Gas, Liquid and Vapor Sterilization (including isolator decontamination); Radiation Sterilization; Filtration Sterilization for Liquids; Compendial and Regulatory Considerations.

Aseptic Processing: A Comprehensive Review – Thursday-Friday

The aseptic course will provide comprehensive coverage of aseptic processing reviewing basic principles, technology choices, process design, environmental monitoring, and process simulation. The course will include sessions on aseptic processing risk assessment, contemporary regulatory expectations and future technologies process. The course materials and recommendations are wholly compatible with the regulatory expectations of FDA’s 2004 Guideline on Sterile Drug Products Produced by Aseptic Processing and EMA’s – Annex 1 on Sterile Medicinal Products.

Who Should Attend

These courses are intended for individuals working with sterilization, aseptic processing or process validation. Experienced individuals will refine their knowledge through interaction with industry experts. Those without a strong background will learn the basics and develop an understanding of the more advanced considerations. The courses are appropriate for personnel working in QA/QC, regulatory affairs, R&D, production, engineering, process development, validation, and microbiology.

The course will be held at the Hotel Continental near the center of Zurich, a 5 minute walk from the central railway station. A number of wonderful restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. Zurich Airport is less than 10 km away, and can be easily reached by rail. Room reservations should be made directly with the hotel. The Hotel Continental Zurich can be reached at + 41 44 3606060 or by email

Take Either Course or Save on Both.

A well trained operator is capable of using our machines with deeper knowledge and this allows the pharma and biotech industry to explore safer and more cost-effective ways to produce drugs.

We have always appreciated Jim’s educational skills and the effectiveness of his training classes. For this reason, we strongly recommend you to attend both courses (but you may also attend only one).

This is a golden opportunity as you can update and increase your knowledge by discussing and sharing your opinions and experience with the instructors.

They offer you more than 80 years of cumulative experience in a wide range of technologies, regulations and geographical areas.
