“Rapid Method for Microbiological Quality Control to Obtain Same Day Results: a Validation Approach”

In chapter 14 of “Encyclopedia of Rapid Microbiological Methods”, vol 4, Ir Peter Cornelis presents a validation approach for the approval of a rapid sterility test for batch release that can provide same-day results. The technology described in this article is based on fluorescent viability staining and detection by solid phase cytometry (ChemScan®). A method that returns sterility test results within four hours will give a manufacturer superior production control and reduces production costs significantly.

The article gives an overview of our validation strategy and comparability between the traditional and alternative test. Additional considerations are discussed, including the use of stressed cells and matrix effects on the overall validation plan.

Ir Peter Cornelis is Department Supervisor at Toxikon Europe NV. He is responsible for the daily routine in the Microbiological laboratory. Furthermore, Peter Cornelis is involved in developing and validating new microbiological methods.
