Why do <USP 797> guidelines still matter after 10 years? Reason is, revisions are being suggested continuously, and changes are being proposed by <USP> as we speak. While we wait for those changes to become official, Aerobiology feels it is extremely important that we understand the environmental sampling guidelines and best practices that are applicable now.
At the annual CETA national conference held in Innesbrook, Florida, we were honored to be asked to contribute an article on behalf of a laboratory's viewpoint on <USP 797>. Aerobiology has been in the laboratory business for 20 years, and we have been servicing the <USP 797> industry since the <USP 797> was in draft form. This article encompasses everything we have seen while processing 100’s of thousands of samples, and our goal is to shed light on best practices from a laboratory perspective.
We hope that this article is informational to you but more importantly please tell us what you think! If you'd like a USP 797 sampling protocol for Rodac plates comment below!
