Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar on objectionable microorganisms will show how to identify and prevent objectionable microorganisms that are beyond the ones outlined in USP <1111>. Attendees will learn the clinical implications due to presence of objectionable microorganisms.

Why Should You Attend:

FDA expects manufacturers of non-sterile products to identify and prevent microorganisms that are objectionable. This responsibility lies with the manufacturer of the product. There is very little understanding in the industry on what organisms should be considered objectionable. At times the specified organisms outlined in the USP are not the only organisms that can harm the patient.
