Effect of Some Storage Conditions upon the Survival of Some Fungal Spores
Folic acid and multivitamin tablets containing Aspergillus flavus Penicillia spp. and Cladosporia spores were prepared at a compression pressure of 148 MN/m 2 and stored at 35°C under different
Optimization of Tablet Formulations Based on Starch/Lactose Granulations for Use in Tropical Countries
AbstractSeveral granulations consisting of α-lactose monohydrate 200 mesh and native starch (corn, potato, rice or tapioca) were prepared. The influence of starch concentration, storage temperature
INTERRELATIONS OF DRYING HEAT AND SURVIVAL OF DIFFERENT FUNGAL SPORES WITHIN THE TABLETS FORMULATION
TLDR
The results showed that the drying heat caused the inactivation of about 32% of Aspergillus flavus spores and 36.6 % of Penicillium spp.
Effect of compression pressure, preservative, and storage with potassium chloride on the microbiological quality of tablets formulated with Terminalia randii Gum (Combretaceae).
TLDR
Studies showed that compression pressures and duration of storage caused marked reduction in microbial load of the tablets formulated with the processed gum of Terminalia randii as a binder.
Microbial contamination and preservative capacity of some brands of cosmetic creams
TLDR
Commercial cosmetic creams and lotions evaluated did not generally meet the standards for microbial limits as specified in official monographs, which can adversely affect health status of consumers as well as the stability profiles of the products.
Surface Microbial Contamination in Some Commonly Available Tablet Dosage Forms
TLDR
Commonly available nonprescription drugs in tablet dosage form have been shown to be frequently contaminated by microorganisms, however, cases of microscopic visualization of microbial contamination of drugs do not often result in recoverable cultures on growth media.
Microbiological Evaluation of Ten Commercial Cough Syrups during Storage
TLDR
The cough syrups evaluated did not generally meet the standards for microbial limit as specified in official monographs and can adversely affect health status of consumers, hence, the need for regular quality control and assurance.
Microbiological evaluation of cosmetics products sourced in Aba city, Nigeria
TLDR
The poor microbiological quality of the preparations investigated can be attributed to either the formulation of these brands or environmental conditions during the manufacturing process and it is hoped that the training of the personnel that handle these processes will improve cosmetic products quality in Nigeria.
