Staying ahead of the curve in your environmental monitoring (EM) program requires an understanding of the constantly changing microbial climate within the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. Having such knowledge allows you to predict potential microbial control issues and effectively solve the problems they may cause. This webinar explores ways to use EM data to provide proactive and practical solutions for managing everyday microbiology challenges. Specifically, we discuss different microbial identification methods and how species-level identification can aid investigations, and present common causes of contamination and ways to prevent it.
