LexaMed provides a full range of best-in-class Environmental Monitoring Services which include experienced consultants to help with program development, trained microbiologists to conduct environmental monitoring sampling, use of calibrated sampling equipment and complete testing services.  


Our all-inclusive environmental monitoring program includes development of an environmental monitoring master plan for your facility based on guidance provided in USP Chapter <1116> Microbiological Control and Monitoring of Aseptic Processing Environments or ISO 14698 Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments – Biocontamination control.

The plan will include outlining sampling site selection and rationale, alert and action limit setting, trending review requirements, investigation of over limits and how to qualify the program’s effectiveness.
