This podcast discusses risk mitigation and the best practices of microbial and particle detection in critical environments for pharmaceutical manufacturing. Also discussed is the methods and roots of contamination. TSI recently introduced an innovative Portable Viable Particle Counter for monitoring of clean room facilities.
