Microbiological Quality Control 101

Learn to detect, prevent, and eliminate common sources of microbial contamination





Quality control (QC) scientists working in biomanufacturing facilities must assure the quality of the final products by testing raw materials, supplies, packaging, production laboratories, and equipment throughout the manufacturing lifecycle. QC scientists follow good manufacturing practice (GMP) regulations during this process to minimize contamination risks at each step of biologic production and to avoid an unusable final product. With the emergence of drug-resistant strains of microorganisms, QC testing is more important than ever.
