Telecon Body:
I spoke to Jill Evan VP of Quality at LifeSouth about the batch record. I emphasized the importance of including (1) all critical steps in the batch record; (2) all calculations for addition of HES or DMSO for example to the cord blood during the processing steps; and (3) Acceptance criteria for all critical process parameters such as a) time of cord blood collection to cryopreservation; b) time of DMSO addition to the processed cord blood to cryopreservation; c) predetermined time and temperature for cryopreservation (freezing acceptance criteria) etc. The sponsor agreed to send a revised batch record for further discussion.
