Did You Ever Have a 'Positive' Media Fill Test?
Avoid a media related 'positive' media fill test -use Merck's irradiated TSB for media fill applications.
Aseptic manufacturing is one of the most demanding operations conducted in the pharmaceutical industry and is a systemized process involving several individual contamination control elements. Sterile filtration is the key element for removal of viable contaminants in the process.
The medium is subjected to exactly the same conditions as the product, including filling and closing, to ensure that there is no microbial contamination occurring during the process. The sterility of production lines has to be checked at regular intervals depending on batch sizes and changes in the process.
