Particle Measuring Systems has been an active supporter of the Parenteral Drug Association (PDA) over the years. Recently, we sponsored a course on environmental monitoring that was held at the PDA Training & Research Institute at PDA’s headquarters in Bethesda, MD. The Institute’s courses cover a broad range of subject areas reflecting PDA’s core competencies — aseptic processing, biotechnology, environmental monitoring, filtration, microbiology, quality/regulatory affairs, and validation; as well as specialized areas such as cold chain, lyophilization, pre-filled syringes and visual inspection.PMS has a presence at many PDA events that go on throughout the year. On February 23, Dr. Claudio Denoya, Senior Applications Scientist, spoke at the PDA Europe Conference on Pharmaceutical Microbiology in Berlin. His presentation covered the detection, enumeration and identification of microbial contaminants found in drug products and the manufacturing environment. Dr. Denoya and Dr. Gilberto Dalmaso, Global Aseptic Processes Development Manager, also showcased a poster at the PDA Southeast Chapter Lab Conference in October.
Particle Measuring Systems proudly continues to participate with the PDA through conference attendance, speaking events and sponsorships.
