Written for the professional who has an immediate need for the information but has little or no training in the subject, Cleanroom Microbiology for the Non-Microbiologist, Second Edition introduces principles of microbiology. It explains the consequences of microbiological contamination, what contamination is all about, how microorganisms grow, and how they can be controlled. The author introduces the vocabulary of microbiology and the types, sources, control, and elimination of organisms encountered in the manufacture of sterile products. Beginning with a discussion of the various types of organisms, the text then covers applications for bacterial detection, avoidance of contamination, cleanroom design considerations, and validation of disinfection methods.

New topics covered include:
  • International cleanroom standards
  • Application of rapid, automated methods for detecting and identifying microbial contaminants
  • In-depth examination of the role of biofilms in pure water systems
  • Increased coverage of production of therapeutic products derived from live tissues and cells
  • Instructors
