Pharmig & CTPA Contamination Control in Non-Sterile Manufacturing


Bicester, UK, January 2014:  Cherwell Laboratories, leading suppliers of environmental monitoring and process validation products, will be supporting Pharmig and the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association (CTPA) at their forthcoming Contamination Control in Non-Sterile Manufacturing event.

The event, to be held at The Hilton Reading Hotel on 13th February 2014, has been organised to support companies within the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and toiletries industry to control contamination in non-sterile manufacturing. Topics to be examined include the risk of microbial contamination in cosmetics and toiletries and what regulators see as an objectionable organism in those products.

A selection of Cherwell's range of specialist products for environmental monitoring and sterilisation validation applications, including Redipor® prepared media, SAS microbial air samplers and biological indicators for sterilisation processes, will be on display throughout the event. Experts from Cherwell Laboratories will also be available to offer practical advice and solutions to meet any specific microbiological requirements.

With over 40 years' experience within the industry, Cherwell have developed an extensive product range for passive and active environmental monitoring. For air and surface sampling Redipor® prepared microbiological media offers a flexible solution. Available in a variety of formats, including contact plates and three sizes of Petri dishes, the Redipor range also includes liquid media and Cherwell are always happy to discuss specific requirements. For active environmental monitoring, SAS microbial air samplers provide a robust, reliable and economical method using standard agar contact plates or Petri dishes.

Andrew Barrow, Sales Manager, Cherwell Laboratories, commented, "This meeting provides the opportunity for microbiologists and quality specialists to learn and share information about the regulatory and safety requirements of good manufacturing practice for cosmetics and toiletries. As members of Pharmig, Cherwell Laboratories hope to contribute to the discussion, as well as provide practical solutions."
