BioSentry® can be used as both a real-time contamination alarm and as a biological monitoring device to complement and enhance the water quality safeguards used by the pharmaceutical industry today.
San Diego (Vocus) January 29, 2009
JMAR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: JMAR), a leading innovator in the development and commercialization of sensing systems for the detection of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) materials, today announced that JMAR's microbial contamination detection expert John A. Adams, Ph.D. will be speaking at the 2009 International Foundation Process Analytical Chemistry (IFPAC) annual meeting on Wednesday, January 28, 2009, in Baltimore, Maryland.
The IFPAC annual meeting, combining industry leaders and research institutions with officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), focuses on the latest developments in emerging technologies: Process Analytical Technology (PAT), Quality by Design (QbD), and Real-Time Analytics. Dr. Adams was invited by Pfizer to present "Automated Real-Time On-Line Measurement of Bacteria in Water using Multi-Angle Light Scattering (MALS) Techniques." JMAR successfully uses MALS technology in its award-winning, laser-based BioSentry® product, the only commercialized, EPA tested, online system for real-time detection of microbial contamination in water.
BioSentry® satisfies the need for rapid, real-time microbial detection in pharmaceutical processing. Immediate detection and classification integrates true quality control into process water by constantly monitoring for biological contaminants that could result in the loss of product, manufacturing recalls, and potential liability for consumer illness.
"We are honored to have this opportunity to showcase BioSentry® as a Rapid Microbiological Method in pharmaceutical manufacturing," said JMAR's Chief Executive Officer, C. Neil Beer, Ph.D. "BioSentry® can be used as both a real-time contamination alarm and as a biological monitoring device to complement and enhance the water quality safeguards used by the pharmaceutical industry today."
Frost & Sullivan recognized JMAR's BioSentry® as the leading innovative approach to water quality monitoring in their 2008 Biological Detection Product of the Year Award.
