Tracking Microbial Contamination in Pharmaceuticals--When pharmaceutical producers discover microbial contamination in their products, they need quick answers to questions such as, "Which bacteria are contaminating my products? Have I seen this before? Where? When?" Through its Qualicon business, DuPont offers the RiboPrinter(R) system, an automated, science-based tool that not only identifies bacteria, but distinguishes among various strains by genetic barcode, with historical information included. By answering critical questions with speed and accuracy, the RiboPrinter(R) system helps facilities gain control of their processes and environment. Some of the largest pharmaceutical companies, along with food industry, public health, reserach and government, use the RiboPrinter(R) system to track contamination and monitor microbial trends.
