Best Use of Microorganisms in Process Validation

Thursday, December 6, 2012
12:00 to 1:00 pm (EST)

The Alliance for Innovation & Operational Excellence – a GMA-PMMI partnership – presents the fourth in a series of five webinars on validation.

The series is based on the recently released guidelines document, Validating the Reduction of Salmonella and Other Pathogens In Heat Processed Low-Moisture Foods, developed by AIOE’s Product Safety Solutions Group.

Fourth in a series of five webinars, Best Use of Microorganisms in Process Validation, will present an analysis of how to establish and implement a microbiological process protocol and, as an alternative, a mathematical modeling approach.

From this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why, when, where and how to use microorganisms to validate a process, and
  • What is needed to perform robust surrogate tests, TDTs, and mathematical modeling.

The featured speaker for this webinar is:

  • Lisa A. Lucore, Ph.D., Manager, Food Safety, W.K. Kellogg Institute
  • Bala Kottapalli, Ph.D., Principal Microbiologist, Food Safety & Microbiology, ConAgra Foods
