Pharmaceutical Microbiology UK

Delivering information on rapid microbial methods, sterility assurance and mycoplasma testing

SMi’s 7th annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology UK conference will provide attendees essential indicators for Quality Assurance and Quality Control whilst presenting that latest information on protecting pharmaceutical and healthcare products from spoilage by microorganisms, and protecting patients and consumers.

The 2018 event will provide an in-depth overview of the function of the pharmaceutical microbiologist and what they need to know, from regulatory filing and GMP, to laboratory design and management, and risk assessment tools and techniques. These key aspects are discussed through a series of dedicated presentations, keynote sessions and workshops, with topics covering biofilms, validation, data analysis, bioburden, toxins, microbial identification, mycoplasma testing, and contamination control.

CHAIRS FOR 2018

  • Oliver Chancel, Sterility and Aseptic Process, Assurance Expert, Merial Sas
  • Andrew Bartko, Research Leader, Battelle Memorial Institute

Expert Speaker Line-Up Includes:

  • Renate Rosengarten, Professor and Chair of Bacteriology and Hygiene, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna
