White Paper Details How DNA Sequencing Services Can Prevent Cleanroom Shutdowns at Medical Device and Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Date:3/3/2009

AGAWAM, Mass., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Contamination by an unknown organism often calls for total shutdown of a cleanroom's operation until that organism can be identified and eliminated. Such shutdowns can have catastrophic effects on the schedules and productivity of medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers alike.

A new white paper, "The Microbial ID Breakthrough: How DNA Sequencing Services Help Prevent Catastrophic Cleanroom Shutdowns," outlines common sources of contamination, discusses problems and delays associated with traditional methods of identifying those contaminants and highlights breakthrough solutions to these difficulties.

The white paper is available, free, for download at: http://www.microtestlabs.com/microseq/

"Modern cleanrooms used for the manufacture of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, or combination products face widespread, persistent threats of contamination. Much of this contamination comes from the people working in these environments. They carry in invasive organisms on themselves -- as well as on the equipment and materials they bring into the environment," says Dennis Champagne, author of the white paper and Director of Lab Services at Microtest Laboratories.

With more than 13 years' experience in regulatory microbiology and contract laboratory operations, Champagne leads Microtest's microbiology, contract analytical chemistry, laboratory support, and virology departments. He holds a B.S. degree in microbiology from Iowa State University, and is a nationally-registered microbiologist.

"Fast action is vital. To get the cleanroom back up and running as quickly
