Miller to Teach Rapid Methods Course; Sutton to Discuss USP 1116 at PDA Europe Microbiology Conference

Dr. Michael J. Miller will be teaching his two-day rapid microbiological methods course immediately following the upcoming PDA Europe Conference on Pharmaceutical Microbiology (conference is Feb. 26-27; course is Feb. 28- March 1). This comprehensive course is designed to provide an introductory review of currently available rapid microbiological method (RMM) technologies, validation strategies, applications, regulatory expectations, financial justification models and implementation plans. Taught by one of the industry’s global leaders in rapid methods, the attendee will be immersed in discussions that will provide a meaningful and understandable roadmap for how to evaluate RMMs and employ them in their own laboratory and manufacturing areas.

Additionally, Dr. Scott Sutton, The Microbiology Network and USP Expert Committee member, will provide an update to the newly revised USP chapter 1116, Microbiological Evaluation of Clean Rooms and Other Controlled Environments. An overview of some of the many sessions scheduled to be presented are listed below:
