Manufacturing non-sterile pharmaceutical and personal care products offers a true test of a microbiologist’s skills, experience and agility of thought. By their definition, non-sterile products are ‘allowed’ to have organisms in them! It is often down to the microbiologist to assess whether these organisms pose a risk, or not. A risk that is two-fold: either to the patient or consumer using the product, or to the stability and quality of the product itself.

Unlike sterile manufacturing, where the answer to microbial contamination in product is black or white and clearly set out in the regulations, non-sterile microbiology requires a true appreciation of risk-based decision making.

On the back of the newly released ‘Pharmig Guide to Microbiological Control for Non-Sterile Pharmaceuticals’, this virtual meeting will cover hot topics across the industry including current guidance and where to go for support, how to conduct effective investigations in the lab and on the production floor pulling out current best (and bad!) practice , fascinating case studies around antimicrobial resistance and how to prevent this at your facility, and how to train your microbiologists for the next decade and beyond. An exciting and highly topical group of presentations.

The meeting is targeted to those working with non-sterile pharmaceutical and personal care products, specifically microbiologists and quality professionals responsible for risk-based decision making, as well as engineering and manufacturing personnel who want to upskill their microbiological knowledge around current hot topics in the manufacture of non-sterile products.

PLUS – attend a receive an additional discount to purchase the updated Guide to Microbiological Control for Non-Sterile Pharmaceuticals which is highly relevant to non-sterile pharmaceutical, cosmetic and toiletry manufacturing industries as there have been significant changes in the microbiological regulations, controls, and testing of non- sterile products. Much of the changes have been prompted by the many recalls of non-sterile products worldwide.

A practical guide for experienced and non-experienced Microbiologists, Quality Assurance Personnel and Qualified Persons.
