The pharmaceutical microbiology industry has seen many changes during the progression into the 21st century. With advances in rapid microbiological methods, revisions being made to regulations in the industry, enhanced knowledge of the human microbiome, and novel testing methods, this industry is ever expanding. In fact, the value of the rapid microbiology testing market is expected to reach USD 6.2 Billion by 2022, expanding at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2016 to 2022. This is the 8th year of a conference which is continually run by SMi and which has been very successful over the past few years.

Developing on last years’ success, Pharmaceutical Microbiology UK 2019 will bring together industry experts to discuss and analyse the latest advancement and challenges within pharmaceutical microbiology. Discover how you can keep up with regulatory changes and maintain the utmost efficiency during production and testing.
