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

as possible, the extent and location of areas affected must be determined, and the exact organism responsible identified," Champagne said.

The white paper identifies the shortcomings of traditional identification methods, such as only identifying bacteria or yeast only; requiring live, isolated colonies; demanding colonies grown in specific media to match library; delivering subjective results; requiring matches against appropriate library for accurate ID; providing library IDs based on multiple strains/species for each entry; and long turnaround times.

As opposed to traditional methods, DNA sequencing for microbial identification has proven highly accurate and is ideal for testing applications, Champagne explains in the white paper. These include pharmaceutical quality assurance/quality control labs, finished product and in-process testing, media fill failure investigations, sterile medical products, opthalmics, medical devices, cosmetics, and nutritional supplements.

Once the organism is positively identified, managers can much more easily deduce the source or sources of contamination, and take swift corrective action to enable the resumption of manufacturing production.
