Guide to microbiological control in pharmaceuticals and medical devices, 2d ed.

Ed. by Stephen P. Denyer and Rosamund M. Baird.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


482 pages




This update of the 2000 handbook (as it was titled) is intended to be used in tandem with the new companion Handbook of Microbiological Quality Control in Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices. Noting that the new edition incorporates material on biotechnological products, medical devices, package integrity testing, and the evaluation of contamination risks in "clean rooms," Denyer (pharmacy, Cardiff, Wales) and Baird (pharmacy and pharmacology, U. of Bath, UK) introduce 21 chapters by international scientists with an overview of principles of microbiology for nonspecialists. Contributors review bioburden challenges, solutions, standards, and auditing in the production of pharmaceutical products and medical devices (e.g., catheters, coronary stents, and orthopedic implants).
