Topic Background:

Microbiology plays a role throughout the manufacture of pharmaceutical products. Whether the final product is non-sterile or sterile, the bioburden exists from the raw materials, throughout the process and/or within the product's environment (water and HVAC) to the final product. A critical review of the overall microbiological process will determine whether the critical "in-process" points permit the final product to meet its acceptance criteria. In addition, any "objectionable" or "specified" microorganisms that may be encountered during the procurement of raw materials and the processing must be considered.

Whether you are testing a starting material (component), an in-process sample, the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API), final product (whether non-sterile or sterile), the environment to include controlled and classified areas or the HVAC, you should be aware of the critical role the microorganisms play throughout. You should be aware of the various microbiological related documents, e.g., raw material sampling criteria, in-process, API, final product, environmental and utilities, (many of which have USP microbiological documents as the "bedrock" for building these documents, to determine whether the SOPs, validations as well as government and other regulatory body document requirements are being maintained to assure the control required to permit the final product to enter the marketplace as safe.
