Factory IQ/OQ, A New Approach for Streamlining Validation of Cell Culture Equipment
The validation of cell culture processes together with the qualification of the related process equipment is getting more and more important in the pharmaceutical industry, and even pilot plants need to be operated in cGMP regulated environments.
