The present work shows the determination, evaluation, and standardization of the microbiological generated by the elaboration of sterile medications based on the -Lactamic antibiotics in a pharmaceutical industry. Limits of contamination are established before, during and after the liberation of the area, by means of the microbiological analysis of the environment, surfaces, equipment, ventilation systems and work uniforms, until reliable limits and levels of acceptance are established for each zone of the area, to fulfill the requirements of INVIMA (Colombian Institute of Surveillance of Medications and Foods), the agency regulating laboratories in Colombia. By means of the microbiological analysis of the evaluated parameters, the numbers and kinds of microorganisms present in the area were determined. A complete identification of these was achieved, and the two bacterial strains were isolated: Micrococcus kristinae and Staphylococcus xylosus. The strain of the isolated mold was: Aspergillus fumigatus. Finally, a program of environmental microbiological monitoring was established including the evaluation of all the parameters that compose and are implicit in the area, thus assuring and supporting its continuity with the documentation and registers developed for the sterile area of -Lactamics antibiotics.
