Bioburden is defined as the number of microorganisms living on a surface that has not been sterilized. The aim of bioburden testing (microbial limit testing) is to measure the total number of viable microorganisms (total microbial count) prior to sterilization. Products used in the pharmaceutical or medical field require control of microbial levels during processing and handling. We test for total aerobic microbial count (TAMC) and total combined yeast and mold count (TYMC).
