Disclaimer

There are reports of thousands of systems in development for use in place of traditional microbiological methods. This article introduces some of the technologies available. Inclusion or exclusion of methods is not meant to confer credibility, endorsement, or acceptance of one method over another. This article was condensed due to space limitations. It will be published in its entirety in an upcoming issue of BioPharm International.

Other Resources

There are a variety of other resources available for use by microbiologists in gaining information on RMM. A limited number of references are listed here for use:
