Bio-Burden Analysis

Monitoring the quality of ambient air and objects, in sensitive environments, for the presence of microorganisms is required to prevent serious production non-conformances and health-hazards.  Sterile manufacturing further necessitates the requirement for continuous monitoring of Bio-Burden. 

Bio-Burden sampling can be carried out by two methods:  

Hi Air sampling. Working on impaction principle, the Hi Air Sampler, samples 280 litres of air every minute, collecting microbes from ambient air on an agar strip. Most coliform bacteria, yeasts, and moulds can be analyzed using different types of agar strips.


Settling Plate. This is a more traditional approach to determining aseptic conditions. Using various media plates, the presence and type of microbe can be ascertained.

In addition to this, swabs and rinse waters are also used to check for bio-load.
