TVC Testing

Total Viable Count

 (also called TVC, TVAC, bioburden, Bacteria, Yeast and Mould count)

Routine quality control testing is a regulatory requirement.  We offer testing to the latest European Pharmacopoeia methods (harmonised with the BP, USP & JP).

This test determines the total number of bacteria, yeasts and moulds in your product and is often performed in conjunction with a test for specified micro-organisms (E coli, Staph aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa etc.) as part of the microbial limits test.

Should you need, we are also able to perform testing to your own test methods.

For licensed products this test method must be validated specifically for your product.  See here for more details.

For more information, technical details and sampling advice please see our Technical Information.
