Rapid microbial monitoring system for airborne microbes expands Cherwell’s EM product portfolio to further support Annex 1 needs

Cherwell, specialists in cleanroom microbiology solutions for the pharmaceutical, healthcare and related industries, will be launching a new portable Biofluorescent Particle Counter (BFPC) to the UK and Ireland at the Cleanroom Technology Conference 2023. On 24-25th May at Birmingham’s NCC on Stand E8, Cherwell will introduce the new MicronView BioAerosol Monitoring System (BAMS) which enables the rapid real-time, continuous monitoring of airborne microbes to support EU GMP Annex 1 requirements.

BAMS is the first truly portable real-time microbial monitor available and Cherwell recognises its value in continuous monitoring, real-time feedback, and trending in sterile medicinal product manufacturing environments detailed in the 2022 Annex 1 revision. The certified ISO particle detector uses laser induced fluorescence to detect Active Fluorescent Units (AFU) and count viable microbes without need for culturing. The introduction of the BAMS rapid microbial monitoring (RMM) system means Cherwell now offers a complete environmental monitoring (EM) portfolio to meet all cleanroom microbiology needs.

“As EM experts, we ensure that we can discuss and offer the best solution to help our customers meet stringent sterile medicinal product manufacturing standards. Adding the MicronView BAMS to our specialist product portfolio means that we can advise and offer our customers an RMM option if they feel it is appropriate for their particular EM needs,” said Emma Millburn, Director of Sales, Cherwell. “With BAMS, which can enable early detection applications, sitting alongside our other viable microbial detection and identification products, this means that we are a true solution provider for all cleanroom microbiology EM requirements.”

Cherwell is exclusively introducing and distributing the new MicronView BAMS within the UK and Ireland. As a new RMM technology it can provide a complementary tool to traditional culture-based methods. Lightweight at just 5.8 Kg with a large touchscreen useable with latex gloves, BAMS can be easily used in many critical locations to deliver continuous, real-time results without need for staining or reagents for up to 6 hours while on battery power.

“MicronView is thrilled to add Cherwell as our business partner covering the UK and Ireland. Their experience and reputation within the industry is outstanding and we know they will drive the market for our exceptional product line. In particular, they will be meeting the demand for a modern class of instruments designed to support requirements in the newly revised Annex 1,” said Jamie Diamond, Director, MicronView LLC.

Jamie added, “The use of Biofluorescent Particle Counters to support continuous monitoring, real-time feedback, and trending in classified areas is growing rapidly. These instruments have the potential to improve process understanding in the most critical manufacturing environments. Cherwell is poised to deliver this technology to their customers and MicronView is excited to support their efforts.”

Also to be highlighted at Cleanroom Technology UK 2023 by Cherwell will be its complete portfolio of cleanroom microbiology solutions. This includes the Redipor® prepared media range, comprising agar plates, bottled media, broth bags, vials and ampoules, and SAS microbial air samplers, supporting both passive and active EM applications, plus microbial identification. For best practice EM, a combination of passive sampling and active air samplers, together with accessories to ensure precise data collection is required.
