"Environmental Monitoring and Certification in Controlled Environments: Meeting Regulations and Achieving Effective Microbial Control for Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturers" - New White Paper from Microtest Laboratories
Date:8/10/2011

AGAWAM, Mass., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Environmental testing and monitoring programs are essential elements in pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing. Companies must understand industrial sterilization and contamination control procedures to bring products to market on time and on budget.

In attempting to meet regulatory demands from sources such as the U.S. FDA and the European Pharmacopoeia, the greatest challenge for medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers may be determining what exactly is required for compliance. How must manufacturers design, implement, certify, and maintain correct sterilization and environmental monitoring programs?

Unfortunately, there is no single reference document that U.S. manufacturers may rely upon to help them design, validate, and demonstrate room class compliance. Nor, given the monumental scope of the task, is it likely that one will be drafted anytime soon.

But a new, free white paper titled "Environmental Monitoring and Certification in Controlled Environments: Meeting Regulations and Achieving Effective Microbial Control for Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturers," available for free download at http://www.microtestlabs.com/environmentpaper, may help.

The white paper reviews the key elements of a best-practice environmental testing program, including sterilization standards, FDA requirements, and the critical factors in maintaining controlled environments. Topics include: What Is Required; Viable vs. Nonviable Particulates; Sampling Plans; Validation Management; Sterilization Programs; Cost/Product Savings; Critical Factors; and The Benefits of Experience. The paper also discusses how these challenges may be met w ith the assistance of an update-to-date testing laboratory.

The white paper is authored by Steven Wieczorek, Supervisor, Environmental Sciences, who leads the Environmental testing, monitoring, and certification groups at Microtest Laboratories, a leading provider of regulatory microbiology and contract laboratory services based in Agawam, Mass.
