Five new seminars at ESTECH 2007


This year’s ESTECH event, which will be held April 29-May 2 at the Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale, IL, will feature a number of new seminars.

Chemical and Biological Defense will focus on test design, analysis, and evaluation of equipment or processes including: chemical and biological defense systems; chemical demilitarization equipment and facilities; and hazardous chemical transportation.

A new seminar and panel discussion, presented by members of the 797 committee and CleanRooms magazine, will be providing the latest information on areas of contamination control implementation through US Pharmacopeia (USP) Chapter 797, Pharmaceutical Compounding: Sterile Preparations. This is the first set of such standards issued by the USP.

The Vacuum Testing seminar will explore two case histories: the Automated Transfer Vehicle and the Mars Rover. Leak rate testing and the selection and use of data acquisition and control systems for vacuum chambers will also be discussed.

Risk Assessment, Disaster Recovery will focus on the risks, both foreseen and unforeseen, that may impact cleanroom operations, as well as disaster recovery plans upon exposure of these risks.

The Vibration/Shock Test Equipment Technology seminar will focus on test equipment technology advances and control systems, which have dramatically improved laboratory testing capabilities for electrodynamic, servo-hydraulic, and pneumatic test systems since the inception of dynamic testing.
