In pharmaceuticals, pathogen testing is very important and critical testing in which different media are used to identify whether specified pathogen is present in the product or not. This pathogen identification is part of Microbial limit testing (MLT) in which first enrichment of sample is performed and then enriched sample is streaked on different media to identify the pathogens. Pathogens should be absent from the sample as per pharmacopoeia. If pathogen is present in the sample then product is not suitable for use. Different pharmacopoeias ask for testing of different pathogens. Below is the table showing list of pathogens as per IP,BP and USP.
ATCC number and morphological characteristics are also mentioned in this table.
