Please join us for the 4th NIST workshop on Rapid Microbial Testing Methods for the Advanced Therapy Community!  Feel free to forward this email to your colleagues who may also be interested in attending.

Workshop Overview:

The NIST-led Rapid Microbial Testing Methods (RMTM) Consortium launched in 2020 to develop standards and measurement-based solutions to advance the use of RMTMs in advanced therapy products.  NIST is hosting the 4th annual workshop on RMTMs to update the community on RMTM Consortium efforts and to work on Consortium deliverables.  Over the course of two days, independent working sessions (1 h to 2 h in length) will be hosted, with Day 1 open to the public and Day 2 for Consortium members only.  This open, virtual workshop is free of charge.  All interested parties are invited to Day 1, including advanced therapy producers, RMTM assay/instrument developers, and cell reference material producers.  New members are being accepted into the Consortium.  

Interested in sharing your experiences with new detection technologies or validation/adoption of rapid microbial methods?  Submit an abstract using this form.   Abstracts are due March 18, 2024.
