Pharmaceutical Microbiology is an essential part of any aseptic manufacturing process. Environmental monitoring, bioburden control and sterility testing are key elements that must be considered in terms of securing product quality.

Microbiology is not only essentially important in terms of product sterility, it also plays a major role in manufacturing medical products. Crucial medicines are made of microbiological products, for example vaccines, antibiotics and hormones. Complex manufacturing processes, such as fermentation or cell culture are used in production. These products represent an on-going challenge that shapes the future of medicine.

The PDA Pharmaceutical Microbiology conference will feature presentations and case studies, accompanied by poster presentations as well as an exhibition showcasing technologies and trends in this exciting and diverse field, fostering a professional exchange amongst its participants. In 2018, this conference will be a truly global event! Taking place simultaneously in two different regions of the world, it will bring together industry, academic and regulatory experts to discuss Microbiology and its vast spectrum of possibilities.
The conference will be complemented by an extensive Education Program. Check our website for the most recent updates.
