Fast, Accurate Sterility Testing
Industry regulations and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) require sterility testing on any product intended to be sterile, such as medical devices, injectables, cosmetics, ophthalmic solutions and more. Sterility testing is critical to your product-development process to ensure products are free of viable microorganisms and safe for customers or patients.
