The objective of this on-line, interactive two day "Essentials of USP Microbiology" seminar is to explore USP General and General Information Chapters to learn their current and updated status and to confirm that those Chapters being utilized are used correctly. USP documents that will be reviewed include:

  • USP<51> Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing
  • USP<60> Microbiological Examination of Nonsterile Products Tests for Burkholderia cepacia Complex
  • USP<62> Microbiological Examination of Nonsterile Products: Tests for Specified Microorganisms
  • USP<71> Sterility Tests
  • USP<85> Bacterial Endotoxins Test
  • USP<1072> Disinfectants and Antiseptics
  • USP<1111> Microbiological Examination of Nonsterile Products
  • USP<1112> Application of Water Activity Determination to Nonsterile Pharmaceutical Products
  • USP<1113> Microbial Characterization, Identification, and Strain Typing
  • USP<1116> Microbiological Control and Monitoring of Aseptic Processing Environments
  • USP<1227> Validation of Microbial Recovery from Pharmacopeial Articles

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the various General and General Information USP Chapters that apply to microbiology
  • Study the focus of the chapters to include those that primarily involve non-sterile and sterile applications and their interpretation
  • Gain an enhanced knowledge of the chapters that involve the microbial environment
  • Examining the changes within the various Chapters that have recently occurred and how to interpret them
  • Review areas that are often overlooked or often misunderstood
  • Study issues that continue to exist between the USP, EP and JP (harmonization)
  • Examine the new regulatory attitude that is occurring with non-sterile products
  • What now constitutes a "specified" and "objectionable" microorganism
  • Explore Form FDA 483s and Warning Letters for microbiological applications

Topic Background:

Microbiology plays a role throughout the manufacture of pharmaceutical products. Whether the final product is non-sterile or sterile, the bioburden exists within the raw materials, throughout the process and/or within the product's environment (water and HVAC) to the final product. A critical review of the overall microbiological process will determine whether the critical "in-process" points permit the final product to meet its acceptance criteria. In addition, any "objectionable" or "specified" microorganisms that may be encountered during the procurement of raw materials and the processing must be considered as well as endotoxin should the final product be a parenteral.

Whether you are testing a starting material (component), an in-process sample, the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API), final product (whether non-sterile or sterile), the environment to include controlled and classified areas or the HVAC, you should be aware of the critical role the microorganisms play throughout. You should be aware of the various microbiological related documents, e.g., raw material sampling criteria, in-process, API, final product, environmental and utilities, (many of which have USP microbiological documents as the "bedrock" for building these documents, to determine whether the SOPs, validations as well as government and other regulatory body document requirements are being maintained to assure the control required to permit the final product to enter the marketplace as safe.
