Good morning all,
Please can anyone suggest to me, where I can get typed organisms. I need ATCC 43300 (MRSA) and also Staphylococcus aureus typed organisms for quality control tests. 

I live and work in Nigeria, but if I can get it from anywhere around the world, I would not mind

Subject: [PMFLIST] Microbiological quality of excipients for aseptic products

Is there any  official requirement or "industrial practice" regarding the microbiological quality of excipients used for sterile pharmaceuticals, e.g. ophthalmics, which are sterile filtered and aseptically filled into their final containers?
For bulk bioburden there is the European requirement by CPMP of NMT 10 CFU/100 ml, but what about the excipients? I have heard about limit ≤ 100 CFU/g, but does it have any official basis?
