Professional microbiological know-how and GMP certified alternative methods

Microbiological know-how and GMP certified methods

Microbiological detection methods based on cultivation can be cumbersome and slow. In many fields of application this is not problematic, but sometimes such long detection methods prevent producers to receive the answers they need during production, for quality control or for improving the whole process. Therefore, Pharmacopoeia has opened the window for application of alternative methods for dedicated purposes. However, in many companies there is a lack of experts in microbiology and/or molecular biology so that it is difficult to implement those modern methods in-house.

vermicon fills this gap by providing professional microbiological know-how and suitable methods for improving the processes of pharmaceutical producers.

What is your benefit?

vermicon offers professional combination of specific and unspecific alternative molecular methods for the fast identification and quantification of microorganisms.

We offer services that hold genuine benefits for your quality control, your product development and approval. We are a company acknowledged for testing of pharmaceutical products according to § 67 Abs. 1 AMG (German Pharmaceuticals Act).

One of the technologies we apply is FISH, which is described in the European Pharmacopoeia in chapter 5.1.6. This method allows specific identification and quantification of viable microorganisms directly in sample material.
