Microbiologists and management alike are working together to remove the perceived barriers to implementing RMM in their own companies. Other industry sectors (e.g., clinical, cosmetic and personal care, food and beverage, municipal water authorities) have employed RMM technologies to monitor microbiological control in their manufacturing operations for many years, and the pharmaceutical industry should learn from their experiences and successes.

The three volume Encyclopedia of Rapid Microbiological Methods focuses on regulatory and compendial initiatives currently in place that will help pharmaceutical microbiologists begin the journey of implementing RMM in their facilities and describes the many rapid methods currently available.
