1 Microrite, Inc. brings you this unique learning experience in Setting up an Environmental Monitoring Program for Pharmacies; Part of Microrite s step-by-step webinar series. Achieving and maintaining sterility and overall freedom from contamination of a CSP is well defined in USP <797>. However there is very little to no guidance on how to set limits, how often to monitor or trend data and recovered microorganisms. Not controlling and monitoring compounding pharmacy environments has grave consequences as seen in current regulatory audits. The standards required for the environmental conditions depend on the amount of exposure of the CSP to the immediate environment anticipated during processing. The quality and control of environmental conditions for each risk level of operation will be discussed in this webinar. When?
