SMi proudly presents the 3rd Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology West Coast Conference, in San Diego, USA, on the 5th and 6th of June 2019.

The pharmaceutical microbiology field is an ever-present constant in almost all areas of pharmaceuticals. We are experiencing a period of rapid change, with new regulatory considerations to implement into our environmental monitoring programmes,  new technologies to improve processes and novel validation techniques.

Join us as we delve into the current evolving issues facing this industry, such as: risk-based approaches to aseptic processing, methods of contamination prevention, creating risk-based environmental monitoring programmes, water monitoring and treatment.
