Rapid Sterility Testing
Rapid Sterility Testing –Fast Turnaround Time To Speed the Delivery of Compounded Pharmaceutical Products
Rapid sterility testing system is an automated solution for the rapid detection, response, and resolution of microbial contamination in filterable samples throughout the manufacturing process. Accurate, rapid sterility testing is not only critical for patient safety it also makes great sense for the compounders and other pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Current harmonized compendial sterility test methods for liquid filterable products require at least 14 days of incubation. By using the rapid sterility testing system results are obtained within 5 days. In addition to the faster turnaround time to complete testing, compounding pharmacies benefit by getting more value for their Beyond Use Dating (BUD) limit.
Rapid sterility testing is based on the various biophysical principles:
Nucleic acid amplification;
Vital dye/auto florescence;
The most widely acceptable and well-established principal is adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence. It is based on the luciferin/luciferase bioluminescence reaction.
Benefits of Rapid Sterility Testing
More value for BUD
Faster release of the results
Reduced storage cost
Increase shelf life of the products
Gibraltar’s Milliflex® Rapid System for rapid sterility testing and rapid bioburden testing is based on the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence. This system is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
