Microbial Monitoring of Surfaces in Production Environments
- a rapidmicrobiology Special Focus


How good is your cleaning process? Whether it is in a food or pharma production environment, surfaces need to be monitored for microbial presence after CIP or other cleaning operations. Traditionally performed by sampling a test area with contact or RODAC (Replicate Organism Detection And Counting) plates or by swabbing a defined area and testing the swab.  Browse through this rapidmicrobiology special focus for products that will help achieve the best and fastest possible solution for environmental monitoring of your facility.  Including a special interview with Derek Lancashire, BD’s Global Platform Director of Industrial Microbiology exploring when and how to change your media supplier for monitoring cleanrooms and isolators.
