Mean Kinetic Temperature: History, Math, and Applications

Mean kinetic temperature
Life Science

When we asked our customers and industry contacts:  "Do you use MKT in a regular workday?" Over 31% said: yes. Surprisingly, almost 5% of people said they were unsure how to use the calculation at all and roughly 63% said they didn't use it very often, but wanted to understand where and when to use it. This webinar was created for people in all three groups - experienced, curious and uncertain.

In this webinar we outline the history of the mean kinetic temperature calculation in pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution. We will include an overview of the regulatory guidance on MKT from the FDA, EMA, and ICH.

Vaisala's Senior Regulatory Expert Paul Daniel provides you with clear guidance for using the mean kinetic temperature calculation, including where it is useful in decision-making for regulated industries, and where it is not.

Key Learning Objectives

  • References and resources for MKT calculation
  • The Arrhenius equation and the non-linear effect of temperature excursions
  • How regulatory bodies (like the FDA and EC) recommend MKT
  • What data to use when MKT is not appropriate
