We proudly present the return of the 6th annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology conference to London in 2017!

The microbiology market has significantly grown in recent years as the demand from end user industries increases. With this expansion and increased demand comes hurdles for the industry.

Our 6th annual Pharmaceutical Microbiology conference will address the complex challenge that the field is facing such as endotoxin testing, best practices in cleaning & disinfection and contamination control case studies.

The bacterial culture media segment accounted for the largest share of the global microbiology culture market in 2014. This segment is likely to continue its increased share until 2023 due to an expected rise in application in food microbiology, pharmaceutical microbiology, and disease research.

The comprehensive agenda will include presentations from both regulatory and industry experts sharing recent case studies and developing trends in the field of pharmaceutical microbiology.
