Virtual Workshop Format
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, USP has decided to modify our approach to the workshop and will not hold an in-person meeting in September, opting to hold a virtual meeting instead. We made this decision to both protect the health of our attendees, USP staff and speakers, and because we believe that we are obligated - as a mission-driven public health organization - to take steps to help slow the spread of this pandemic by fostering social distancing.
Event Time Zone: U.S. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) - Washington, DC
Osmolarity, osmolality, and tonicity have closely related but distinct definitions. However, they all suffer from the same affliction—their perceived simplicity frequently yields to underappreciation and lack of detailed understanding of:
- Intricacies in their measurement;
- Their impact in formulation and product design for human and animal use through multiple routes of administration; and
- Their use as control strategies during manufacturing processes.
This workshop will explore and share the latest developments in the measurement, control, and application of osmolarity/osmolality and tonicity in the design, production, and quality control of modern pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.
Topics to be covered include:
- Instrumental techniques used to measure osmolality and tonicity, their pros and cons, calibration procedures
- Considerations for formulation development
- Manufacturing processes for biologics
