Justification of Incubation Conditions Used for Environmental Monitoring

By Jeanne Moldenhauer, Ph.D.
Dr. Moldenhauer addresses the question of environmental monitoring media and incubation conditions in last month's issue of American Pharmaceutical Review™.  She cites the most recent revision of USP <1116>: "Time and incubation temperatures are set once the appropriate media have been selected. Typically, for general microbiological growth media such as SCDM, incubation temperatures in the ranges of approximately 20°C-35°C have been used with an incubation time of not less than 72 hours."  A company therefore must establish the appropriate media/medium and incubation condition (time, temperature, etc.).  She provides a concise and pragmatic approach to establishing these parameters.
  
Dr. Moldenhauer astutely points out the importance of including in-house isolates: "Test organisms should include both laboratory stock cultures and environmental isolates from the facility...  Some companies choose to include more organisms of a specific type that they routinely find in their environment, or have been associated with adverse trends or sterility failures."  Be sure to visit our Bibliography page for more regulatory and industry references on this topic.
