Terminal Sterilization of Sterile Filtered Products
June 25, 2021
Terminal sterilization of aseptically processed drug products is extremely important for patient safety. As such, it is a regulatory requirement that drug products that can withstand terminal sterilization be terminally sterilized. Overkill type sterilization cycles are not required for a drug manufacturer to make a terminal sterilization claim. Many different time and temperature combinations that are much more product friendly can be used to safely terminally sterilize drug products.
