SMi’s reputable Pharamceutical Microbiology conference returns for its 3rd installment on 20th and 21st January, 2014, London UK.

Pharmaceutical Microbiology 2014 will draw upon the experiences and knowledge from experts and specialists around the globe to provide first-class presentations and stimulating discussions.

The conference will aim to focus on the regulatory aspect, with topics addressing preparations for auditing, what to expect during the inspection process, and how to rectify poor situations. There will also be considerable spotlight on novel rapid methods, case studies from the USA, their implementation, and the current regulatory view on methods. Among these hot topics the event will also examine sterility assessment, risk management, and contamination control.


Regulatory body representation and update – what to expect from inspection, how to prepare your lab, and how to rectify situations when things go wrong.

Discover cutting edge rapid methods, how to implement the technology, and the regulatory stance

Hear specialist advice on contamination control and risk management to minimise costs and maximise efficiency

Learn about hot topics which include objectionable organisms, viral contaminations, update on the pharmacopeias, and quality by design.

Discuss case studies and experiences with expert speakers and delegates from across the UK, USA, and Europe.
