Ensure the Quality of Your Antimicrobial Preservatives
Whether you are QC testing industrial, pharmaceutical, or consumer products to ensure the effectiveness of your preservatives, the ATCC® Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing Panel (ATCC® MP-16™) will help you quickly and accurately determine the antimicrobial minimum inhibitory concentration required.
Strains are organized based on federal guidelines and regulations associated with the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing, as well as the needs of industrial research and development. The panel consists of five fully authenticated strains, produced under an ISO Guide 34:2009 accredited process that offers confirmed identity, well-defined characteristics and an established chain of custody, all qualities essential to their effectiveness as biological standards. The panel includes: ATCC®10231™ Candida albicans, ATCC®16404™ Aspergillus brasiliensis, ATCC® 8739™ Escherichia coli, ATCC® 9027™ Pseudomonas aeruginosa and ATCC®6538™ Staphylococcus aureus, and is recommended for the following uses:
- Establishing sensitivity, linearity, and specificity during assay validation or implementation
- Challenging assay performance
- Validating or comparing test methods
- Testing and calibration in ISO 17025 labs that stipulate the use of certified reference materials
- Benchmarking critical assay performance for regulatory submissions and production lot release
- Pharmacopeia compendial tests
Ensure the efficacy of your preservatives with the ATCC® Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing Panel (ATCC® MP-16™).
