Microbiological tests

Our microbiological laboratory is GMP-certified for microbiological testing of non-sterile medicinal products and APIs. All tests are conducted by highly qualified specialists with many years of experience in pharmaceutical microbiology. We use professional, state of the art laboratory equipment that allows us to ensure the highest standard of testing and manufacturing operations. We provide a wide range of microbiological research including:

  • Microbiological purity tests of medicines and pharmaceutical raw materials;
  • Validation of microbiological procedures as per pharmacopoeial requirements;
  • Antimicrobial effectiveness testing (preservative effectiveness testing);
  • Monitoring of production environment.


Microbiological purity testing.

Microbiological purity tests for medicines and pharmaceutical raw materials

We offer a full range of microbiological tests (quantitative and qualitative) in accordance with relevant pharmacopoeial requirements:

  • Total microbial count per g/ml of product;
  • Total yeast and mould count per g/ml of product;
  • Testing for staphylococcus aureus;
  • Testing for pseudomonas aeruginosa;
  • Testing for e.coli;
  • Testing for salmonella;
  • Testing for enterobacteriaceae and other gram-negative rods;
  • Testing for candida.


Validation of microbiological methods as per relevant pharmacopoeial requirements.

We provide comprehensive testing for suitability of qualitative and quantitative microbiological methods (validation of microbiological methods). The test is performed in compliance with current pharmacopoeial requirements. A full statistical analysis of data is also available on request.


Antimicrobial effectiveness testing for medicinal products (preservative effectiveness testing).

We have many years of experience in R&D of medicinal products. Our laboratory provides antimicrobial effectiveness testing (also called preservative effectiveness testing) for medicinal products containing preservatives, for example:

  • During formulation development of newly developed products;
  • Throughout the shelf life of products (verifying stability of preservatives).


We perform monitoring of hygienic conditions in production environments of pharmaceutical and cosmetic production facilities, healthcare centres, and private clinics including:

  • Microbial air testing;
  • Microbial testing of surfaces, equipment, and devices;
  • Microbial testing of personnel;
  • Identification of isolated microbes.

We look forward to working with you. Please contact our specialists with any enquiries.
