Appropriate Uses for Product Sterility Testing: When Is Sterility Testing Appropriate?

Published Date: January 12, 2023

Sterility testing is commonly the first test we think of to determine if something is sterile, but in most cases it is not the appropriate test. In this webinar we will review the accepted approach for determining sterility assurance through sterilization and packaging validations. Then we will examine sterility testing, including the pros and cons of the methods to understand when and how the test should be used.  Finally, we will look at common case studies where sterility testing is often used and outline a better approach.
