Dear forum members,

we want to develop a microbiology method to detect cephalosporin trace
in production areas after cephalosporin decontamination.

Do you have any suggestions which microorganism, culture media and
inactivator are most suitable? If you have used a method for a similar
situation we will appreciate if you give us more information. The only
reference we have is the one from FDA (By lines No 3 and 8, Nov 1977)
which is referred to detection of penicillin trace in products.   


Best regards,
