SMi's 2nd Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology East Coast Conference

Pharmaceutical Microbiology: Discussing best practices and techniques to tackle microbial control challenges

SPONSORED BY: Associates of Cape Cod, Charles River, bioMérieux, and DuPont

CHAIRED BY: James Drinkwater, Chairman, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Sciences Society

The pharmaceutical microbiology industry has seen many changes during the progression into the 21st century. With advances in rapid microbiological methods, revisions being made to regulations in the industry, enhanced knowledge of the human microbiome, and novel testing methods, this industry is ever expanding. In fact, the value of the rapid microbiology testing market is expected to reach USD Billion by 2022, expanding at a CAGR of from 2016 to 2022.

Join industry experts to discuss and analyze the latest advances and challenges within the industry. Network with industry professionals, discuss the revision of Annex 1, explore data integrity considerations for conventional and rapid microbiology methods, analyze arising issues with environmental monitoring and gain insight into an industry perspective on automated endotoxin testing and process automation.
