ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: Alcami Introduces Rapid Sterility

Rapid sterility is an alternative test method to the US Pharmacopeia (USP) General Chapter <71>, Ph.Eur. 2.6.1, and JP 4.06 sterility tests that allows for shorter incubation periods and faster results. Alcami is launching rapid sterility via the Milliflex® Rapid System, which uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence for detection of microorganisms after five days. A fully comprehensive comparability study verifies adherence to USP/Ph.Eur. requirements for alternative microbiological methods and demonstrates that rapid sterility is a reliable alternative to the reference method.

In this webinar, Alcami’s rapid sterility expert, Stacey Ramsey, will introduce Alcami’s new rapid sterility platform and provide information for understanding implementation requirements. Stacey will also discuss the advantages of the rapid sterility platform as it compares to USP <71>.

A 3-Minute Introduction To Rapid Sterility Testing

Rapid sterility is an alternative test method to the US Pharmacopeia (USP) General Chapter <71>, Ph.Eur. 2.6.1, and JP 4.06 sterility tests that allows for shorter incubation periods and faster results. A typical sterility test has 14 full days of incubation and uses analyst observations to generate results, whereas a rapid sterility test is reduced to just five days of incubation – a 64% reduction in processing time. Rapid sterility also incorporates more sophisticated, computer-generated results, which eliminate observation bias. Alcami utilizes the Milliflex® Rapid System for the rapid sterility test, which uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence for detection of microorganisms after five days.
