Pharmaceutical Microbiology

At SGS, we are leaders in microbiology testing services for quality control, providing a complete array of services for the bio/pharmaceutical industry.

The microbiological attributes of pharmaceutical ingredients are often critical to final product quality. FDA expects manufacturers to measure and characterize the microbial quality of their pharmaceutical substances as well as of their final drug products.

Our microbiologists have a wealth of experience in applying USP, Ph. Eur. and other international methods to a wide variety of biologics and traditional pharmaceuticals. Recognized as the global benchmark for quality and integrity, we are committed to providing you with the best-in-class services.

Our teams of microbiologists help determine your needs and expectations to satisfy regulatory requirements. Our scientific approach is supported by our technical knowledge and expertise in microbiological testing. With extensive method validation expertise, our team of microbiologists ensures the quality and integrity of all test results.

Our facilities meet the demanding cleanliness and engineering requirements of microbiological testing programs. Class 100 hoods, clean rooms and isolators are available for microbial evaluation.
