ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Additional resources are available as microbiologists gain information on rapid microbiology. These include the following:
http://www.fda.gov/ has guidance documents on PAT, information on presentations, and other data.
http://www.rapidmicrobiology.com/ includes information on vendors, technologies, press releases, etc.
• Rapid Microbiology User's Group (RMUG), with information available at http://www.vectech.com/ has resources and support information for seminars and newsletters.
• Pharmaceutical Microbiology Forum (PMF), http://www.microbiol.org/, is for pharmaceutical microbiologists. It includes an e-mail discussion group, virtual library, and information relevant to microbiologists.
