LOGOMicrobial quality control (QC) testing is a critical aspect of pharmaceutical, medical device, and personal‑care products manufacturing. Such tests typically include the following:

  • environmental monitoring (analyzing the air, surfaces, and personnel within cleanrooms to ensure manufacturing areas meet mandated standards)
  • bioburden testing (testing devices, components, raw materials, or finished goods to verify that the total population of viable organisms is within acceptable limits)
  • sterility testing (testing final or in‑process products for viable organisms; a sterility test result should show no growth).
