How Does Microbial ID Benefit Your Pharmacy?
Microbial identification is an important component of a quality assurance program; specifically as it relates to environmental monitoring (EM), raw material and final product bioburden assessment, and out-of-specification (OOS) investigations.
The Essentials of USP Chapter <51>
The Essentials of United States Pharmacopeia Chapter <51> Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing and Its Application in Pharmaceutical Compounding
Antimicrobial preservatives are excipients added to multi-dose containers of both sterile and nonsterile drug products. Antimicrobial preservatives are used primarily to inhibit growth of microbial contamination occurring during the period of use. Demonstration of antimicrobial preservative effectiveness is required for these functional excipients. This article reviews key factors for consideration in the selection of preservatives, principles of the preservative-effectiveness test, and the significance of requirements for preservative-effectiveness testing in the compounding practice.
