Culture media validation is frequently seen as something to be avoided due to the time it takes. It is not as bad as it is
perceived and spending a little time getting this right will pay dividends.
Sometimes the pudding is over egged. Tests done which do not make any sense and because others have performed
them previously. Test layout may be too complex. Site specific aspects are not considered Product specific aspects are
not considered. Discussion will focus on recommendations on the parameters for a meaningful validation. Anticipating
and reducing future deviations with savings in both time and money.
