Company boosts industrial microbiology expertise to enhance customer support…
Any pharmaceutical product, whether manufactured in the hospital or industrial environment, has the potential to be contaminated with microorganisms. With sterile products, any microbial contamination presents an unacceptable risk; with non-sterile products, the implication of the contamination is dependent upon whether the microorganism can be considered ‘objectionable’, and then to the extent that it can cause patient harm (and here a risk assessment is ordinarily required).
On 26 – 27 November the Pharmig 16th Annual Conference will take place at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel, Nottingham. Building upon the success of previous years, this years conference will include keynote presentations, exhibition, open discussion sessions as well as social and networking opportunities for delegates.
Arguably microbiology is the oldest of the applied sciences, although early exponents doubtless had no understanding of how the fruits of their labour in fermentation for example, came about. The true forerunners of microbiology as it is recognised today would be Koch, Pasteur, Petri et al, who developed much of our basic understanding of the subject and many of the methods that are still in use approximately 150 years later. In that intervening period our knowledge of human and microbial genetics has dramatically increased and our exploitation of that knowledge has led to the current explosive growth of Biotechnology, such that clinically important biopharmaceuticals can now be produced by insect, plant, bacterial or mammalian cell lines or indeed in the milk of bovines.
