Bioburden Testing Solutions
For bioburden testing in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, MilliporeSigma provides a complete portfolio of products and services designed to ensure microbiologically safe drugs and cosmetics. Our products range from traditional to rapid and are based on proven technologies such as membrane filtration and fluorescence-based, non-destructive detection.
MilliporeSigma’s Milliflex® filtration units maximize sample preparation efficiency and reliability for bioburden testing. These pre-sterilized and ready-to-use Milliflex® filter funnel units eliminate time-consuming washing, bagging, autoclaving, and equipment handling. The Milliflex® units are disposable. After filtering your sample, you simply break off the funnel from the membrane-containing part of the unit. Sanitizing the Milliflex® Plus vacuum pump, with which the filtration units are used, is easy and hardly disrupts your workflow.
For bioburden testing, MilliporeSigma maintains a complete range of agar-based media in convenient, pre-filled, ready-to-use cassettes. Our high purity ingredients and ISO-certified manufacturing processes give Milliflex® media a longer shelf life than formulations prepared on-site. We extensively test each lot of media for pH, sterility assurance, recovery of ATCC strains typically found in bioburden applications, and product formulation. A Certificate of Quality containing all relevant test data is included in every box. Our media conform to the requirements set forth in the European, US and Japanese pharmacopeias.
