SMi reports: With only two weeks until SMi’s 3rd Annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology West Coast taking place in San Diego on June 5th & 6th 2019, the event has sold out!

Rapid microbiological testing is gaining momentum in the global market as a reliable and cost-effective method to track and monitor all types of microorganisms in pharmaceutical application as well as in other industrial settings. In addition, rapid microbiology tests offer faster and more accurate methods to assist in the rapid detection of microbes and early diagnosis, therefore saving cost and inventory.

Pharmaceutical Microbiology West Coast 2019 will see the gathering of the pharmaceutical microbiology industry to bolster strategies that will improve contamination control and heightened microbial detection and identification. With over 5 hours of networking, attendees will have access to build relationships with companies across the pharma supply chain.
