Microbial Identification: When to Do It and How It's Done
Direct link to this video on: YouTube
Webinar from Nelson Laboratories discussing the compendial requirements and recommendations regarding:
1. The importance of microbial identification in an environmental monitoring program.
2. How microbial identification is an important tool with gamma sterilized medical device validations in understanding a product bioburden baseline, in defining product families and in determining the frequency of dose audits.
3. How microbial identification can be critical in investigations of environmental excursions, bioburden spikes, sterility failures, Biological indicator (BI) testing and Microbial Limits screening.
Information will be included on microbial identification testing at Nelson Labs, from the benefit of sub-culturing organisms to the importance of a Gram stain as part of a polyphasic approach to identification.
