Webinar Exploring “What’s the Risk? Fearing the Failure in Environmental Monitoring Systems” is Offered for Life Science Companies

AGAWAM, MASS. — March 11, 2014 — A webinar to help life science companies explore the importance of a well-implemented and understood environmental monitoring program, and its ability to generate valuable data, will be offered on Wednesday, March 26, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST. The online event will identify the common mistakes and misconceptions regularly encountered when managers “fear the failure” of environmental excursions.

Environmental monitoring systems demonstrate that a company’s various contamination control strategies are operating properly. Such systems can illustrate whether operations are in a state of control. Variations in the data can indicate a drift which could potentially impact product and patient safety.

But the data generated by environmental monitoring system may become skewed when a culture is created which fears environmental failures or excursions. The webinar, What’s the Risk? Fearing the Failure in Environmental Monitoring Systems,” will detail how key life science company management can work to avoid such cultures.

Webinar topics — tailored for quality assurance and control, manufacturing, microbiology, and facilities management in pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device organizations — will include:

  • The big picture: what systems need to be monitored and why the data is valuable
  • Risk-based environmental monitoring program implementation
  • Culture and “buy-in:” how to create a culture of employee acceptance for contamination control programs
  • Responding to data: how to identify trends in the data and respond with appropriate actions

The webinar will be offered Wednesday, March 26, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST. Featured speakers include Valerie Montgomery, environmental services manager, and Alison Zulick, environmental services leader, both of Microtest Laboratories, a leading provider of testing services and contract manufacturing for the life science industries.

Fundamentals of Endotoxin Testing for Medical Device Manufacturers are Detailed in New Technical Brief

AGAWAM, MASS. — January 14, 2014 — The fundamentals of endotoxin testing for medical device manufacturers — from definition to assay acceptance criteria —are detailed in new technical brief available from Microtest Laboratories.

Bacterial endotoxins cause fever, septic shock, and other disease symptoms — and thus attract considerable regulatory scrutiny from such organizations as the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Pharmacopeial Convention. Regulations require that devices that contact circulating blood or cerebrospinal fluid, or are used with intraocular products or in vitro fertilization procedures, are required to be endotoxin-free.

The Fundamentals of Endotoxin Testing,” available for download at, is a step-by-step information resource for medical device manufacturers discussing and detailing the:

  • Definition of endotoxins;
  • Various tests used for their detection;
  • Use of depyrogenation and other ways to remove endotoxins;
  • Types of devices that should be tested;
  • Preparation and testing of samples;
  • Options for sampling containers;
  • Acceptance criteria for each of the assays; and
  • Sources of official information, reference, and guidance.

The Fundamentals of Endotoxin Testing” is authored by Steven Richter, Ph.D., said Steven Richter, Ph.D., president and scientific director of Microtest Laboratories — and a former FDA official.
