European Microbiology Conference

10-12 May 2016, Barcelona, Spain

Invitation to the European Microbiology Conference 2016 with pre-conference workshop on "Bioindicators"

Dear Colleague,

I would like to invite you to the European Microbiology Conference (EMC) and the Biological Indicator Workshop 2016 organised by the ECA Academy in Barcelona, Spain. The ECA has been organising the European Microbiology Conference since 8 years. Due to the positive feedback from attendees, speakers and exhibitors it has become an annual event in spring, presenting the current topics and developments in pharmaceutical microbiology. In 2016, the EMC will be combined with a Pre- Conference Workshop on requirements, suitability and validation of Biological Indicators (BI).

The combination of these two events gives you an outstanding possibility to keep you up-to-date with the current developments and state of the art handling in microbiological quality control. Pharmacopoeial experts, representatives from pharmaceutical quality control and from testing laboratories will show you their experiences and what are the challenges and how they implemented an adequate microbiological quality control in their companies.

The pharmaceutical microbiologist plays a key role in all aspects of development, manufacture and control of medicinal products, and their components. It is thus the aim of this conference and workshop to equip the pharmaceutical microbiologist with practical and applicable knowledge and “know how”. In addition it will provide a forum for interesting and open discussions between presenters, regulators and your colleagues from the industry.

It would be a great pleasure for me if you joined us in Barcelona

Dr Sven M Deutschmann
Chairman of ECA's RMM Working Group
