About the course

Controlling microbiology throughout the manufacturing process is a key success factor for production. Microbiology is unseen and data is history, effective control requires all disciplines to be involved in the control measures and any out of specification investigations. Therefore, all key personnel should have a thorough understanding of microbiology.

This course is designed to give non-microbiologists a comprehensive introduction to microbiology so that they can engage in the required control measures, investigations and corrective actions.
