On-line Microbial Monitoring

On-line microbial monitoring offers new possibilities on how pharmaceutical companies manage their water systems. Real-time bioburden measurement means quality managers get immediate feedback and transparency on events or excursions for better decision making and root-cause analysis.

The case study explains how a leading biotechnology company integrated an on-line water bioburden analyzers parallel to their plate counting to use as a process control tool on its PW system. The customer defined a baseline measurement for the analyzers and could see their water system was steady and under control, then measurements started fluctuating. Find out in the case study why fluctuations were observed and what it meant for the company and its production.
