The Problem of Bacterial Spores and Sporicidal Disinfection (webinar)

There have been a number of pharmaceutical and healthcare product recalls associated with bacterial contamination, and a number of these are associated with spore forming organisms. In addition, there have been some reported cases of patient illness, especially in relation to aseptically produced medicines. Investigations have shown that poor contamination control has led to spores being prevalent in the production environment. Improved contamination control strategies are required to prevent such incidents from occurring.

Incidents of bacterial spore contamination of medicinal products are increasing. Regulators are concerned about the link between product recalls and the process environment. Pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities need to have a robust bio-contamination control program in place. This webinar outlines the origins and risks of spores, strategies to reduce incidents, and the selection and incorporation of sporicidal agents into the contamination control program.
