2016 Events Round Up

Supporting Industry Events

Over the years Cherwell Laboratories has supported many industry events and this year we are supporting and helping to organise a good number.

So far in 2016 Cherwell Laboratories has been represented at two events run by Pharmig on consecutive days in March. The 2nd March conference covered the “Best Practices in Environmental Monitoring” and 3rd March conference, aimed mainly at the public sector, was the “Latest updates on Sporicides - As Part of Your Transfer Process”. This was covered in Andrew Ramage’s March blog.

Dry Fog 2 System Presentation

More recently, we were joint organisers of an Environmental Monitoring conference in Towcester. A range of topics covering mainly rapid methods was covered. The day started with an Introduction to rapid and automated detection of EM microbiology testing followed by a presentation about data integrity and regulatory compliance through QC automation.

After lunch, techniques in controlling contamination in cleanrooms were covered, followed by a presentation of the Mar Cor Dry Fog 2 in its application in controlling spores in cleanrooms. The day ended with a round table discussion of various topics including the latest changes to the ISO 14644 cleanroom standards.

If you were unable to attend the Environmental Monitoring conference but would like to see the presentation on Dry Fog 2, you can download it here.
