Sterility testing for pharmaceutical products

Toxic isolator

Good manufacturing practices require the performance of a microbiology test to verify that sterile pharmaceutical products are free from microorganisms before distribution to the market. Sterility testing can also be performed throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that medical devices, raw materials, formulations, and processes performed are sterile and free of contaminants.

To perform a sterility test on pharmaceutical products, EREA offers high-performance, custom-made isolators that comply with standards.

Sterility testing of pharmaceutical products

The sterility test is a process carried out in the pharmaceutical industries consisting in verifying the effectiveness of a sterilization or aseptic manufacturing process, according to the strict requirements of good manufacturing practices (GMP) and the standards and regulations in force. .

The purpose of sterility testing of pharmaceutical products is to protect consumers. It is imposed by GMPs and by the standards governing the profession. So many methods are used to carry out tests and sterility trials. To ensure the integrity of the control and verification process, the most effective method is to use an isolator.

It is a piece of equipment offering a confined and sterile environment intended for carrying out sterility tests. The solution makes it possible to test pharmaceutical products, medical devices, raw materials or even pharmaceutical packaging. Thanks to the isolator, the products are tested in an environment that maintains their level of sterility. Using it makes it possible to carry out the tests in confined and sterile conditions and to avoid the risk of having false positive or false negative results.
