Microbial Limits Testing
For non-sterile products, we can perform microbial contamination testing using harmonised pharmacopoeial or client-supplied methods to determine the bioburden within the sample.
Microbial enumeration – Total Yeast and Mould Count (TYMC) and Total Aerobic Microbial Count (TAMC) analysis and tests for specified microorganisms are employed for this.
- Determine compliance to compendial specifications for microbial quality (Ph. Eur/USP)
- Quantitative testing – how many microorganisms are present
- Qualitative testing – specifying which microorganisms are present
- Apply pour plate and membrane filtration methods
