Following on the success of the past West Coast events, SMi proudly presents the 4th Pharmaceutical Microbiology West Coast Conference, in San Diego, USA, on June 17th and 18th 2021 bringing microbiology experts to focus on innovations in rapid methods and contamination control strategies. Microbes such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses that can contaminate current and novel pharmaceutical products or therapies may stem from various sources such as raw materials and human operators, are taken into consideration.

This concern is critical in advanced products/therapeutics facilities where often distinct areas within manufacturing are slowly merging, providing potential new sites for contamination events. The conference showcases sessions that cover alternative endotoxin testing and rapid mycoplasma testing as well as implementation of in-line biodurden monitoring to control water systems, to name a few. Due to the complexities brought about by more advanced therapeutic products, both drugs and patients are time dependent and rapid methods are ever more desired.

A significant portion of the conference will focus on contamination control strategies and facilities support/novel technologies such as a look at a sustainable global contamination control program, cleanroom pass thru best practices and a case study executing rapid transition from clinical to commercial manufacturing and more. Also see a regulatory session discussing objectionable organisms in non-sterile drug products and an all-women panel discussion: 'culturing' successful women microbiologists.
