Environmental Monitoring involves the incubation and counting of microbial environmental monitors, such as surface samplers, passive air samplers, and active air samplers. Environmental control is a requirement of all Good Manufacturing Practices. Nelson Labs can perform microbial identification work immediately on any growth observed. For setting up an environmental monitoring plan for cleanrooms or other aseptic environments, refer to USP <1116>. In some locations on-site environmental monitoring is available.
For information on water system environmental monitoring, please see Water System Validations.
