Microbiological testing of non-sterile pharmaceutical products

Microbiological testing of non-sterile pharmaceutical products is a fundamental aspect in the pharmaceutical industry. This analysis is crucial for the release of a wide variety of products, following the guidelines established in chapter 5.1.4 “Microbiological Quality of non-sterile pharmaceutical preparations and substances for pharmaceutical use” of the European Pharmacopoeia. This regulation applies to oral, rectal, cutaneous, nasal, vaginal preparations, inhalers and transdermal patches, among other products.
