Test for Specified Microorganisms

Microbiological analysis on selective media

image

We perform tests for specific microorganisms according to Ph Eur 2.6.13 / USP . Testing for specific microorganisms is performed using selective media. Since this is a non-quantitative test, the sample is first pre-incubated in general purpose media and thereafter spread onto selective media.

IBefore analysing a product in routine, a Method Suitablitiy Test (MST) is performed. This test verifies the method of choice by pointing out possible antimicrobial properties of the Product. Validation is done by inoculating the product with ≤ 100 CFU of microorganisms defined by the pharmacopoeia.

The specific microorganisms that we test for are:
  • Escherichia coli
  • Salmonella
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Clostridia
  • Candida albicans
  • Bile-tolerant Gram Negative bacteria

Analysis result, lead time

Normal time requirement from customer order to analysis report-out are 5 to 7 business days but may vary depending on sample characteristics. For more information, see general terms and conditions.
