Which is the more discriminating method for single use technology– static or dynamic extraction? Discussion among industry groups and subject matter experts has been intense. However, very little data exist comparing the two techniques. This presentation will present the findings of a side-by-side study that compares the extractables generated from gamma irradiated 10” filters using each technique. The discussion will compare and contrast the profiles of the total organic carbon (TOC), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), pH, and metals extracted. The discussion will compare the profiles with time for each technique for each analysis, as well as summarize the pros and cons of each technique.
