Microbiological Testing Advantages
Microbiological testing plays an important role in the Raw materials, production samples and finished products also.
Microbiological testing is required for presence and absence of any specified organisms, microbial enumeration, as well as detection for bacterial endotoxins under aerobic or anaerobic conditions. It is useful to detect any micro contamination occurs in products in various industries like pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food and medical device etc.
