July 23, 05.00 pm IST


Educational Session by Dr. Lucia Ceresa

About the Webinar

The implementation of Rapid Microbiological Methods has been supported by regulators for many years. Meanwhile, it is a common expectation that appropriate technologies are used to increase the safety and the quality of pharmaceutical drug products.

The webinar will cover:

• Relevant guidelines and validation parameters 

• A successful approach for the validation of an ATP Bioluminescence based Rapid Microbial Method

• A well-defined method of stressing microorganisms to investigate a “worst case approach”
