Conference: Alternative and Rapid Microbiological Methods

26/27 November 2024


In the context of this conference, current developments in the relevant regulations and scientific methods will be presented and, in addition, experiences in the implementation and validation of alternative and rapid methods will be reported. It will cover applications for in-process control as well as those used in the context of product release. Examples of real-time or online monitoring will also be regularly covered.

This conference will provide an opportunity to discuss the latest advances in technology as well as practical aspects and concerns for meeting regulatory requirements. State-of-the-art presentations by competent speakers from the authorities as well as industrial and academic experts in the field of microbiological detection and identification will provide a comprehensive overview.


Scientific progress in the field of cell and molecular biotechnology has led to the rapid development of biopharmaceuticals, tissue engineered applications and advanced therapy medicinal products. Against this background, the safety of these new technologies, products and applications is becoming increasingly important. An important issue in the context of risk assessment and safety is contamination with microorganisms and mycoplasmas and their detection, prevention and control using rapid and appropriate methods.
