Project Description: Filter integrity test (FIT) is a non-destructive test to detect any defect of filter that may compromise filter's bacterial retention capability. FIT is also a regulatory requirement for certain critical filtration processes. Failure of FIT can cause delay of batch release or even batch loss. Variations in factors such as temperature, sterilization of the filter, the surface tension of a given pharmaceutical formulation, the contact time, the presence of product components deposited on the membrane, the rinsing and wetting procedures, and the in-process testing procedure may influence the FIT results. This project will be evaluating and identifying critical factors during the FIT process to ensure more consistent and reliable FIT results. This project will enhance the understanding of FIT process control needs and more robust FIT strategy can be developed to ensure the filter is defect free.
Desired Majors and/or Skills:
- Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, experience with chromatography or filtration preferred.

Desired Education Level:
- Rising Sr. or Masters' in Engineering.
