Reducing Plate Counting by 25%
Case Study on Real-time Microbial Monitoring Pharmaceutical Grade Waters

June 2021, MARIETTA, GA ~
Remaining competitive in a global marketplace is a challenge for the biotech and pharma industry, as they must focus on optimizing costs while improving efficiency and mitigating risk.

While taking 35-40 samples per water loop every day the goal was to reduce plate counting while maintaining product safety.

The company implemented real-time microbial detection to reduce bioburden monitoring costs with METTLER TOLEDO 7000RMS. An additional benefit to this approach lead to a more comprehensive process control strategy.

This case study explains how the costs of off-line microbial monitoring are continuously increasing and that a focus on plant efficiency through overall process control is vital.

Learn how rapid micro methods (RMM) using the 7000RMS analyzer from METTLER TOLEDO were implemented.

The METTLER TOLEDO 7000RMS is an on-line water bioburden analyzer for real-time measurement of microbial contamination in pharmaceutical grade waters.

The bioburden analyzer, when used in parallel with plate counting, offers a rapid microbial method (RMM) for better microbial control of your water system, reducing the risk of releasing contaminated water, increasing the speed of product release and improving process control.
