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:

Monitoring air - passive monitoring and active sampling
Monitoring surfaces and personnel
