Our Tutorial pages provide in-depth reviews of the benefits of implementing RMMs, the science behind the technologies, why they differ from conventional microbiology methods, and how they can be applied in the modern microbiology lab and manufacturing environment. Separate pages discuss RMM technologies based on growth, viability staining and laser excitation, the detection of cellular components, optical spectroscopy, nucleic acid amplification and gene sequencing, and Micro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems such as biosensors and microarrays.
The RMM Product Matrix allows you to compare multiple RMM technologies that are commercially available or in development.
The Validation page presents a comprehensive overview of how to develop and execute a validation plan that is applicable to both industry users and suppliers of RMMs.
The Regulatory Pages explore the various strategies that can be considered when working with regulatory agencies during the design, validation and implementation of RMMs. Separate pages for the ICH, FDA, EMA, TGA and PDMA are provided, in addition to a separate page that provides guidance on changing acceptance levels and specifications.
A comprehensive financial analysis is required to justify the implementation of rapid micro methods. The Return on Investment page offers practical guidance on how to develop a business case, and apply ROI and payback period models to support the purchase and validation of rapid methods.
The RMM Reference page provides an extensive list of rapid micro method publications, books, presentations, white papers and regulatory and pharmacopoeia resources that can be viewed online or downloaded from our library.
Do you have a question about technologies, applications or validation strategies? Our RMM Discussion Forum on LinkedIn allows you to post your questions and read messages from other RMM users, vendors and regulators. You will need to set up a FREE LinkedIn membership to use the RMM Forum. Welcome to the RMM global community!
