Gilberto Dalmaso, Global Aseptic Process Development Manager at Particle Measuring Systems, has contributed to a newly released book with Rapid Microbial Methods (RMM), published by The Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Sciences Society. The book, titled PHSS Technical Mongraph No. 20 Bio-contamination, is a comprehensive review and best practice guide on bio-contamination characterization, risk profiling, control, monitoring and deviation management. It applies to controlled environments in GMP and non sterile applications where Bioburden control is required.

Over his last five years with GSK, Gilberto led a series of initiatives implementing Process Analytical Technologies (PAT) and Rapid Microbial Methods (RMM) that improve quality and process understanding while yielding significant cost savings. In 2003, his laboratory gained the distinction of obtaining the world’s first rapid microbial PAT approval from the US FDA. Gilberto is a PDA Steering Committee component, reporter to numerous symposia on microbiology and pharma in Europe and the U.S.A., ISO 9001 quality system auditor and HACCP auditor.
