Steam in Place represents an important technique that facilitates the management of microorganisms in environments ranging from foods to dietary supplements to pharmaceutical products. When this technique is applied properly, it provides a microbiological assurance that may range from sanitization to sterilization. The primary application of Steam in Place is to provide a significant temperature for a specified time to either reduce or provide a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) for the death of microorganisms. This methodology finds application primarily with equipment.

Steam in Place, PDA Technical Report No. 61, provides a detailed overview of issues related to the rendering of a surface or product devoid of microorganisms. This process may sterilize the product or only reduce the bioburden. As with other forms of sterilization, concepts of Sterility Assurance levels (SAL) with dry heat, ethylene oxide and cobalt irradiation apply to Steam in Place (SIP). This live training webinar will review the application of SIP and discuss its mechanism of lethality. The system design for a SIP cycle will be covered to include its control and monitoring. Cycle development considerations will delve into the area of Risk Management (ICH Q9) and how it impacts cycle parameter development. Once all of these elements are in place, performance qualification will be reviewed and include both the physical and biological qualifications and challenges. Examples will be provided throughout the live training webinar.

The objective of this live training webinar is to explore the development of Steam in Place and how it may be utilized to provide either the sanitization or sterilization of equipment without its incorporation into an autoclave or subjecting the equipment to another mode of sterilization. Because of the sensitivity and importance of Steam in Place to a variety of facility applications, this live training webinar is a MUST for anyone in your organization that is involved in the removal of microorganisms through sanitization or sterilization.
