Industrial Pharmaceutical Microbiology: Standards & Controls - 2015 Edition

edited by Geoff Hanlon and Tim Sandle

ISBN 978-0-9573491-1-7 (Hb);    ISBN 978-0-9573491-2-4 (Pb)

The contamination control of pharmaceutical and healthcare environments and processes, together with pre-clinical drug development labs, requires a far more holistic approach than simply choosing technologies and disinfectants. Today the microbiologist is expected to understand industrial processes and cleanrooms, and how to effectively evaluate microbial risks to products from personnel and processes.

Reviews:

"This new second edition is an excellent reference work for those working in industrial pharmaceutical microbiology. It covers all aspects of this complex subject with contributions from many leading figures in the field and is highly recommended."
European Journal of Parenteral and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Vol 19 No 4

"This book is not simply about the science of microbiology for it takes the science into to the industrial setting and offers invaluable advice on how to apply it to the manufacture of pharmaceutical and healthcare products, and for keeping such products within microbial control. A further strength with the book is its topicality, in having the most recent regulations and standards featured. The book features 25 chapters covering environmental monitoring, water systems, vaccines, safety, biological indicators and microbiology laboratory management. Picking the stand-out chapters is difficult, because there are so many good ones. … In summary this book is essential for every pharmaceutical laboratory: scientific, topical and practical"
Pharmig, January 2015

"The 2015 edition of Industrial Pharmaceutical Microbiology is a first-rate reference resource for any professional microbiologist, covering a wide range of topics of relevance to the whole industry. The book starts with the role of the microbiologist and the microbiology laboratory, before moving on to specific microbiological and industry controls. It closes with the issues facing some specialised areas of the industry with their own particular microbiological challenges. … Overall a very useful, well-edited book that will be an invaluable reference to anyone involved in pharmaceutical microbiology."
Clean Air and Technology Review Issue 21, January 2015
