I am a chemist with limited micro background and hope someone can help me out.  I was wondering what does the industry think of testing gelatin or soft shell capsules for micro burden.  Do they allow bacteria to grow more rapidly than hard shell? What test would need to be performed? Please let me know if there is some literature out there that can help me.

Thanks again,
