Environmental monitoring article in vol 3 issue 4 2016 Nutraceutical Business Review


Our Microbiology Product Specialist, Andrew Ramage and our Sales Manager, Andrew Barrow have worked together to write an article discussing the importance of environmental monitoring within a manufacturing facility to ensure the safe release of products.



The article, which is featured in Volume 3 Issue 4 2016 of Nutraceutical Business Review, covers:

  • The importance of environmental monitoring
  • Monitoring air - passive monitoring and active sampling
  • Monitoring surfaces and personnel
  • Choosing your environmental monitoring media
  • Regulatory changes

Here's an extract from the article:

To ensure that final product is safe for the patient of consumer to use, there is a requirement for manufacturers to be in control of the environmental conditions within a manufacturing facility.

.....The most important aspect of choosing an appropriate medium is ensuring that it can grow as wide a range of organisms as possible, especially the most common types associated with your own cleanroom.
