Quality assurance is vital to all pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturing. Procedures followed by the microbiology testing lab ensure the integrity of the manufacturing environment and the product itself. Sampling, transportation, incubation, and sterility testing provide an opportunity for external contamination to skew or invalidate testing results. Testing failures result in investigations, which are costly and time consuming. Elimination of “false positives” caused by external factors are in the best interest of the entire manufacturing operation.
STERIS Barrier Product Solutions has developed product solutions for the micro lab that protect samples and facilitate proper handling and compliance with current Good Laboratory Practices (cGLPs).
