Hands-On Training for Sterile and Non-Sterile Manufacturing Challenges in the Micro Lab

June 5-7, 2018
  • Philadelphia, PA

IVT’s 6th Annual Microbiology Week brings together industry’s leading microbiology experts for two and a half days of interactive, customizable and hands-on training sessions. Addressing the greatest challenges in both sterile and non-sterile manufacturing, this conference provides training on preparing for inspections, how to best utilize alternative rapid methods for microbial identification, preventing microbial contamination and much more. All new this year — take part in extended 3-hour hands-on workshop to develop a Risk-Based Environmental Monitoring program for your organization.

Benefit from the Experts on:

  • Microbiological testing in sterile and non-sterile environments
  • Preparations for an FDA inspection in the microbiology lab
  • Criteria for choosing non-viable and viable monitoring devices
  • Causes of FDA 483s related to microbiology
  • Barrier system flaws that lead to contamination
  • Identifying and responding to the presence of
    objectionable organisms
  • GMP compliance auditing of non-sterile laboratories
  • Validate and implement rapid microbiological methods
  • Apply data integrity principles to the microbiology lab

Previous Attendee Acclaim:
