Conference Chair Di Morris, AstraZeneca invites you to join SMi's 10th Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology Conference

SMi Reports: Conference Chair Di Morris, AstraZeneca invites industry experts to attend the 10th Anniversary of Pharmaceutical Microbiology UK Conference taking place in London on 17-18 January 2022.

Di Morris invitation to all senior microbiologists write:
‘As chair of SMi's 10th Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology UK Conference, it is my pleasure to cordially invite you to attend this anticipated must attend conference taking place on 17th and 18th January 2022 in London, UK.’

‘Microbiology remains an essential tool for the detection of microorganisms present in biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical batches. In recent years, the industry’s interest in microbiology has grown, this has been in part due to the growing resistance of certain bacteria to antibiotics, as well as the introduction of new technologies and automated solutions which provide more rapid results for faster clinical decisions -- making the most relevant information easily accessible to clinicians, significantly improving the operational efficiency of laboratories. Microbiological considerations continue to be one of the largest areas of investment from the pharmaceutical industry.’

‘The conference will explore the most pressing topics in this thriving field, from the movement toward process automation and minimisation of operator intervention, to the latest technologies in rapid microbiological testing methods and data integrity.’

Interested parties can register for the conference and the two interactive workshops at Register by 29th October to save £200.

• Discover case studies in establishing holistic Contamination Control Strategies and Real-Time Viable Air Particle Counting with leaders in the pharmaceutical industry 
• Gain insight the current state of Endotoxin testing, including alternative test methods and strategic approaches to method validation
