Aseptic Processing and Packaging Workshop
Offered Online and In-Person
Aseptic Processing and Packaging Workshop at Purdue University incorporates a lecture and "hands-on" laboratory format to review the essential scientific and engineering principles relevant to applying the aseptic technology. The "hands-on" activities include simulated process demonstrations, packaging integrity tests, testing methods in chemistry and microbiology, and displays of equipment components used in aseptic processing.
For those looking for a more flexible workshop, an online course is now being offered. The online option has open registration. Though this option is online, the workshop still covers the same curriculum and topics as the in-person option.
Topics presented are an overview of aseptic processing and packaging, microbial principles applied to aseptic processing, chemical considerations, principles of thermal processing and thermo-bacteriology, equipment features, packaging considerations and assessment the package's sealing integrity, and determination of a quality assurance program for a review of compliance issues relative to commissioning an aseptic system.
The Department has been a recognized leader in aseptic processing, starting with Dr. Phil Nelson's bulk aseptic storage in the late 1960s. In 2019, we held our 36th annual Aseptic Workshop open to the general public. Upon demand, Purdue Food Science can customize the workshop to fit your individual company's needs.
