Media fills are performed as a validation of aseptic production processes. The operational steps are performed using a microbiological growth medium instead of the product. The sealed containers with medium are investigated for sterility at the end of the production process.
Usually sterilised, dehydrated media or ready prepared liquid media are used for media fills. The most often used medium is TSB (soybean casein digest medium).
We are pleased to inform you that Merck KGaA has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the microbiology business of Biotest AG. The Microbiology Business Unit of Biotest comprises the hygiene monitoring products (Hycon) from Biotest and its subsidiary heipha Dr. Müller GmbH. It is planned to integrate Biotest’s microbiology into the BioMonitoring business of Merck Millipore. The acquisition is a key part of Merck Millipore’s BioMonitoring strategy and will increase the product offering in the industrial microbiology.
The topics of these seminars are the “Paperless Lab”and improvements of environmental monitoring processes.
Hands-on demonstrations of the MODATM Solution (data capture, lab processing, reports and analytics) and interactive presentations will be provided. You will also hear about QC Micro Automation in the Life Sciences Industry and clean room integration technologies, such as Pre-barcoded Media Plates by heipha GmbH.
heipha GmbH will present new trends in environmental monitoring such as new culture media for the pharmaceutical industry, safe transfer methods of media into isolators and fast methods for sterility testing.
