NCIMB Now Supplies Custom Controls to Simplify Use of Your Environmental Isolates in QC Testing

NCIMB, already a supplier of cGMP-compliant microbial identification to pharmaceutical companies, is now a distributor of Microbiologics custom environmental monitoring controls.  Using your own environmental isolates, identified at NCIMB, Microbiologics can manufacture test-ready controls, quantitated for specific Pharmacopeia methods. Custom controls can also be manufactured from reference culture strains.

Microbiologics is well known for their extensive range of easy-to-use and reliable quantitative and qualitative microbiology control products. The custom control product, combined with NCIMB’s existing range of microbial identification services, reference cultures, and the full range of Microbiologics quality control microorganisms, creates an excellent package for pharmaceutical microbiologists, so we are delighted to now offer it.  

What’s included?
Isolates will be identified both phenotypically and genotypically prior to the manufacture of your chosen QC product. Stock cultures are safely banked at Microbiologics’ headquarters, so it is easy to order further batches of your Custom Control, and quality control is performed prior to every shipment.  Technical support experts are available if you require any guidance, and of course, all your strain information remains confidential.

Custom controls are available in a range of test-ready formats quantitated for specific methods including:

  • Antimicrobial effectiveness testing
  • Aseptic Processing Environment
  • Disinfectant Qualification
  • Growth Promotion Testing
  • Suitability Testing
  • Validation of Neutralization Methods
  • Water for Pharmaceutical Purposes.

Having your own environmental isolates made into test-ready formats greatly simplifies the use of environmental isolates in QC testing, and the ordering process is simple – get in touch with NICMB to ask for a quote, send us your strain, and we’ll organise the rest!

NCIMB is a biotechnology company providing innovative microbial solutions to life sciences, food & drink, energy, and environmental businesses. We supply, identify, quantify and store microorganisms to support and de-risk your manufacturing process and product development needs. Our commitment to customer service sits at the heart of our offering.
