Pharmaceutical Microbiology

21 - 22 January 2015, London, United Kingdom

Set to take place on 21st and 22nd January 2015, the 4th annual event in the sell-out Pharmaceutical Microbiology series will bring together all levels of industry professionals, providing essential insights into the latest advancements in practice and technology, developments in regulation and the global harmonisation of evolving microbiology methods.

Join us as we ask questions such as; What are the best approaches in contamination control? Where does microbiological risk assessment interact with HACCP? How do we develop and manage the sterilisation and validation process? When can we use a scoring system to avoid unnecessary microbiological testing? What are the latest approaches to preventing biofilms?

Hear presentations from an array of market leaders such as GSK, Genzyme, Abbott, MedImmune and AstraZeneca, address real world case studies on the benefits and challenges of rapid methods, risk assessments and objectionable organisms.

“I have attended the last 2 Microbiology conference and have appreciated that outstanding experts from the pharmaceutical industry, and international academia presented various microbiological aspects with a serie of case studies to focus on the practical knowledge, the “know how” which can be directly applied on daily business. I look forward to attend this new conference in London as it is likely to provide an incredible forum for open discussions with speakers and attendants.” – Oliver Chancel, Merial Sas
