This document aims at giving advice on the quality of water to be used in the preparation of antigens usedThis document aims at giving advice on the quality of water to be used in the preparation of antigens usedin the manufacturing process of vaccines. It takes into account the new European Pharmacopoeiamonographs, which were introduced in 2002 as well as the QWP Note for Guidance on the Quality ofWater for pharmaceutical use, which was adopted by the CPMP in November 2001
With a constantly escalating and increasing knowledge in both Science and Technology of today, even embracing the World of the Quantum, it is rather surprising and disappointing that wet chemistry as it is related to so-called colloidal silver is not keeping pace with these new developments. In fact little has changed in the last eighty years.
The ubiquitous dielectric properties of water creates many problems in determining exactly what those properties are. Already there is discontent and division on what the actual resistance of water is.
There is sufficient anecdotal and scientific evidence that organic antibiotics are being overprescribed, becoming less effective as a means of dealing with bacterial infections, and also responsible for making our drinking water more and more contaminated with waste pharmaceuticals.
This report describes the principles and methods for (1) the preparation and measurement of primary and transfer standards, (2) the calibration of conductivity cells, and (3) the preparation and certification of the NIST Standard Reference Materials (SRMs).
