USP <797> Sample Report, Sample Report Guidance

MAR highlights include:

  • An overview page, allowing you quick access to sampling results.
  • Separately documented incubation periods showing CFU counts if present during the enumeration process.
  • For USP <797> customers can request all, microorganisms to be identified to the species level and noted if it is pathogenic per USP guidelines.
  • Raw counts and positive hole corrections are shown per sample, as well as a description of media and incubation process used.
  • A diagram of the areas sampled will be integrated with the report.
  • Each report is reviewed and approved by a laboratory manager and a data quality analyst to confirm accuracy.
