Event Overview.

As regulations become more stringent, microbiological testing and analyses are critical to ensure the quality of pharmaceutical products. The membrane filter technique is a regulatory approved method for bioburden testing. This sample analysis automated by colony counters saves time, labor costs, and provides detailed information about the colonies. In this webinar, learn how membrane characteristics influence the accuracy of your results.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Maximize efficiency and control contamination
  • Benefits of automated colony counting process
  • Membrane filtration solution for pharmaceutical bioburden testing

Who Should Attend:

  • Microbiology lab manager
  • Microbiology — quality control
  • Quality control associate — microbiology
  • Microbiology manager
  • Assistant manager microbiologist
  • Head of department — microbiology


Patty Lee
Global Product Manager, Lab filtration microbiology

Patty Lee has over 25 years of experience in sterile filtration and quality control. Her education is in microbiology, and she started her career as a QC microbiologist. Some of the first responsibilities Patty had included testing product for organism retention, pyrogenicity, and recovery performance. Structural integrity of finished product was also a major focus of her early experience. In addition to her laboratory experience, she has held positions in technical service covering applications for laboratory products spanning media preparation, quality monitoring, analytical chemistry, and environmental monitoring; new product development of a unique capsule pleat structure; and marketing product management.
