Hi,

Does anyone one know of an 'off the shelf' bioburden/ microbiological monitoring software package?

This is for use in an orthopaedic implant cleaning environment within an ISO grade 8 cleanroom.

Cheers
Jim.

No disrespect but I wonder what would the added value of such software be. :confused:

Hi,
Absolutely no disrespect taken.
The value would be to have a repository for the significant amout of data I generate from settle plates / contact plates / active air samples / water analysis and bioburden samples.
It would be good to cut the data in many ways in order to show trends, plot graphs against limits etc. Would be useful in response to limit excursions / spikes.
As I use 11137-2 section 4 to rationalise a large number of products to one master product for dose audits I have 2 bioburden sampling regimes which generate a significant amount of data.
I imagine the package would not be that expensive or complicated.
I am no good with databases and the excell spreadsheets I use are a bit rubbish. Just checking of any off the shelf options out there first.
I take it you don't know of one then?

Sorry, but I never came across any such purpose-built software. I was going to suggest a spreadsheet until that point where you dismissed it... Other than that I would have used a general-purpose statistical analysis package, but if you don't already have one in house then the associated costs may be difficult to justify (you could go for shareware / freeware but getting to master it would also consume some resources).

Sorry :(

No worries. Thanks for your help. Making the spread sheet better and / or using Minitab are two of the options I will explore if no packages to do it exist.

Cheers
Jim.
