Cell Therapy Microbiology Consulting has training materials available for cellular therapy operations and laboratories.
The first resource is a training manual for those who perform the Gram Stain Assay to determine presence or absence of bacterial contamination for example in the final product prior to release.
Training Manual for the Gram Stain Assay. This 34-page training manual is designed to aid in performing and interpreting the Gram stain for cell therapy product release testing. Due to the live cell-based samples, often visualization and interpretation of potential contaminating bacteria can be difficult and may lead to false positives or false negatives. This manual offers guidance for sample preparation to obtain best results, precautions against contamination, and provides several pictures and examples in understanding how actual bacteria presentations from clinical specimens would appear for more accurate interpretation.
