Bioburden testing is a process of measuring viable microorganisms on medical devices, raw material, or package. The process helps in determining parameters for its sterilization process to ensure safety and effectiveness of medical devices. It further aids in routine monitoring of raw material, components, and assembly processes in manufacturing process. The bioburden testing is used for assessment of cleaning processes and packaging of products is conducted to ensure safety.
Growth in the medical devices, pharmaceutical and rising product recalls due to microbial contamination are factors that drive the growth of the world bioburden testing market. In addition, biotechnology industries and increasing food & beverage safety concerns supplements growth. However, high cost of microbial enumeration instruments obstructs the growth of the market. Increasing preference for contract manufacturing and emerging economies are creating opportunities in the market.
