Description

As much compendial test method harmonization as has already occurred with Microbial Limits testing for non-sterile products and raw materials, surprisingly little has occurred with the microbial test methods used for testing water. Both USP and JP recommend methods in their non-mandatory informational chapters, and USP goes a step further to encourage the user to find the best method for their water systems which may not be a suggested method. EP is prescriptive about the method that should be used, but it is well-known that this method may not be optimal for many water systems because of the long delay in test results which could be identical from faster methods, leaving no room for emerging Rapid Micro Methods
