Scott Sutton


Scott Sutton, one of the foremost microbiologists, passed away while attending the PDA Microbiology Conference at North Bethesda.

Scott was an inspiration to me and I learnt a great deal from his work. His writings on Microbiology laboratories, plate counting, and disinfectants, in particular were especially useful.

He was a pioneer and a founding father of modern day pharmaceutical microbiology. Dr. Sutton was one of the founders of the Pharmaceutical Microbiology Forum.

Dr. Sutton had over 30 years of experience in the GMP pharmaceutical, medical device, cosmetics and personal products industries with extensive publications and presentations. His expertise included:
  • Quality Assurance / Quality Control
  • GMP and Good Compounding Practice (GCP)
  • Contamination Control
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Microbiological Laboratory Investigations (OOS)
  • Laboratory Management and Operations
  • Microbiology-related Project Management
