Test for Specified Microorganisms

Microbiological analysis on selective media


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 ‚ȧ 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
