Microbiological control of phytotherapic samples


, : Microbiological control of phytotherapic samples. Revista de Farmacia e Bioquimica da Universidade de Sao Paulo 31(1): 35-38

Fifty one phythotherapic samples including powdered guarana, herbal for teasraw materials, fluid extracts, capsules and pills were submitted to microbiological analyses for identification, counts of aerobic bacteria, moulds, yeasts and pathogenic species, in general. The results showed that 17.9% of the samples did not conform the established standards of the European Pharmacopeia patterns. By the normal published standards of the World Health Organization (WHO), 56.8% of the samples would not be permitted for use. The WHO directive does not allow the presence of pathogenic or potentially pathogenic species such as Enterobacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus in pharmaceutical preparations. For not being sterile, 37.2% of the analysed samples were considered inadequate for use.
