Why Should You Attend:

TOC (total organic carbon) analysis is one of the most common analytical methods used for cleaning validation in the pharmaceutical industry. This non-specific method is typically used to detect the presence of organic residues on cleaned product contact surfaces. TOC analysis is rapidly becoming the analytical method of choice for cleaning validation for several reasons. Many pharmaceutical companies are developing cleaning validation methods based on a whole-product approach: a determination is made as to whether any residue is present without regard to its origin (including products, cleaning detergents, chemicals, solvents, byproducts, degradants, and microbial contaminants). This method works well with TOC analysis, which can detect any API or cleaning agent residue that contains carbon in its molecular structure.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

Understand the Chemical Basis of TOC Analysis.
Learn how to set limits based on TOC.
Learn how to validate TOC as an analytical method for cleaning validation purposes.
Understand possible interferences from sampling and analysis.
Optimization of TOC recovery for difficult to oxidize or solubilize compounds
Learn appropriate uses of TOC throughout the validation life cycle.
Benefits of at-line and on-line sampling

Upon earning a degree in Zoology at North Carolina State University, Joy McElroy made her debut in the pharmaceutical industry in 1992 at Pharmacia & UpJohn performing environmental monitoring and sterility testing. Her hard work allowed her to move into a supervisory role at Abbott Laboratories where she oversaw their quality control lab. In 1998, Ms. McElroy moved to Wyeth Lederle and worked in quality assurance, performing GMP compliance audits, batch record reviews, and holding annual GMP training for new employees. After working in quality assurance for a few years, she moved into equipment qualification and cleaning validation at Mallinckrodt.

With over 20 years total experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, Ms. McElroy has gained extensive knowledge of quality assurance, process and cleaning validation, equipment qualification, sterilization, and GMP compliance auditing. Her knowledge, experience, and strong work ethic have made her a highly sought-after engineer in both the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

In 2013, Ms. McElroy started her own company, Maynard Consulting Company, which provides top engineers, auditors, and validation specialist to pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device clients across the United States, Canada, and the world.
