Pharmaceutical testing

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP), European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP) have developed quality standards to support the production of safe pharmaceutical products. Similarly, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires routine testing of pharmaceuticals to confirm the safety and efficacy of drugs before they reach the marketplace.

To ensure the accuracy of microbiological quality control tests, it is essential to use authenticated reference materials as controls. That’s why the pharmaceutical industry looks to ATCC to provide the top-quality strains necessary to maintain the highest levels of product integrity and reputation. By using ATCC products, testing labs can rely on quality systems, strain authentication, and meticulous microbial maintenance protocols. This provides highly accurate identification across a wide array of microorganisms and can help avoid the pitfalls of misidentification, painful recalls, and regulatory repercussions.
