Introduction from the associated Whitepaper:


The purpose of microbiological environmental monitoring is to assess the cleanliness of pharmaceutical (sterile and non-sterile) and medical device manufacturing environments. Environmental monitoring involves the collection of data relating to the numbers or incidents of microorganisms present on surfaces, in the air and from people. In addition, non-viable particle counting, a physical test, is undertaken in conjunction with viable monitoring because of the relationship between high numbers of airborne particles and microorganisms (Sandle, 2011a). 


This white paper has been put together to consider the practical application of environmental monitoring for both sterile and non-sterile products, together with some best practice ideas. The white paper outlines the important components of an environmental monitoring programme and provides practical advice for those tasked with setting up a programme or who wish to review an established programme (an activity which should be undertaken on a periodic basis). Whilst many of the points discussed will be of interest to microbiologists and quality personnel, no single document can provide a definitive programme. This is because no two facilities are the same; they differ in terms of products, procedures, people, design, and environments (Schneider, 1995). 


Consequently, each microbiologist will need to develop a monitoring programme appropriate to their facility, drawing on the different points outlined in the Whitepaper.
