PDA Technical Report No. 33 is Now Available - Webinar on Nov. 6

As the Chairperson of the Technical Report No. 33 task force team, it is my pleasure to announce that the newly revised TR33, "Evaluation, Validation and Implementation of Alternative and Rapid Microbiological Methods," is now available for download by PDA members and the scientific community.

The revised TR significantly expands on the original 2000 document, providing enhanced guidance on validation, regulatory expectations, return on investment, scientific principles and implementation.

Please visit to access the TR.

If you are attending the PDA Global Conference on Pharmaceutical Microbiology in Bethesda next week, please join me on Tuesday from 11:00-11:30 am, where I will present an overview of the new TR.

If you cannot attend the PDA Micro meeting, I will be hosting a comprehensive 90-minute web seminar that will provide attendees with an overview of the new TR33 and a practical understanding of how to apply the guidance when validating and implementing rapid methods in their own facilities. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions about TR33 or any other topic associated with RMMs. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, November 6 at two separate times to accommodate most geographic locations. Please register for this webinar at
