An example of this is the debate between a spread plate test method of 1. A knowledge of bioburden can be used in a number of situations as part of: It is not 11737–1 to isi the bioburden exactly and, in practice, a determination of bioburden is made using a defined method.
Thus, it is not possible to expect bioburden test results to be as accurate or precise as one would with an analytical chemistry test. The 50 percent value was arbitrarily selected and not based on data.
Neither variable is consistent in different circumstances, and they are not easily explainable with the laws of physics. Sterilization of medical devices.
Typically, it is sufficient to perform a bioburden isk on a product after its removal from its packaging system and to omit the packaging system from the determination. Getting to the Root of the Problem. By understanding root cause analysis, device manufacturers will be equipped with a prescriptive approach to problem-solving.
Determination of a population of microorganisms on products. Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance. Since guidance on this topic was excluded from the standard, some manufacturers performed routine bioburden testing for all inner packaging. For a given treatment, the probability of survival is determined by the number and resistance of microorganisms and by the environment in which the organisms exist during treatment.
BS EN ISO 11737-1:2006
Although the spread plate is faster and easier, if zero colonies are detected on the plate, the results would be reported as less-than 50 CFU i. Such products are non sterile. Some might say that swabbing could be used to remedy that issue. Sterilization of health care products. Some of the packaging will float on top of the extraction fluid, making a full extraction of the surface area difficult. Search all products by. It follows that the sterility of any one product in a population subjected to sterilization processing cannot be guaranteed and the sterility of a processed population is defined in terms of the probability of there being a viable microorganism present on a product item.
Attempting to have a low LOD is one of those reasonable measures to consider. Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world.
The effectiveness of the bioburden extraction process is determined in a recovery efficiency test. Definition of a single method for use in the determination of bioburden in all situations is not practicable because of the 111737-1 variety of designs and materials of construction of medical devices.
The importance of performing recovery efficiency testing has always been included, and is still represented in the version, but some details were added and some changes were made. Please download Chrome or Firefox or view our browser tips.
Therefore, performing some bioburden testing of packaging to obtain data is a good practice. Methods other than those given in the guidance may be used, if they are effective in achieving compliance with the 111737-1 of this part of BS EN ISO Determination of a population of microorganisms on products Status: Examples of where it is the responsibility of both the manufacturer and laboratory include selection of bioburden method, test method suitability for validation of the bioburden method, and removal technique.
A Laser Focus on 1173-1.
Correction to the Standard While lso are the top five changes in the new revision deemed important enough to highlight, there is one additional item that needs to be mentioned. You may experience io viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Testing service and equipment providers are challenged to stay abreast of regulatory guidelines.
Once the data are gathered and it is determined that the results are acceptable, there is no need to test packaging on a routine basis.
