Serious Games: Sterility Sampling Training

We had the privilege this past year of building a great partnership with LearningPlus, out of Rochester NY.  Started by James Vesper in 1992, LearningPlus has been hard at work, creating innovative workshops and instructional products for the pharmaceutical and health-care industries.  Paired with Jim's industry expertise, vision for delivering meaningful tools, and BrokenMyth's passion for technology and finding innovative ways to engage learners, we developed the S4 training game.

The Sterility Sampling Statistical Simulator (S4) is a tool that can be used in training people in statistically-based sampling and specifically in the limitations of the sterility test used by the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. S4 can be used by individuals, small groups, and in larger instructor-led training events. Users can select from total population options, defect/contamination rates, and sampling sizes, including the sampling size of 20 units as required by many regulatory agencies.  The tool offers a great way for people to prove to themselves why building quality into the process and product is so critical.  It also offers consumers a more practical way of accessing & training on a bead box.  Toting one around to different training sites can prove to be a bit challenging.  Stay tuned for more great training solutions as LearningPlus continues to dream up new tools for their customers.

This great tool is now available for download in the iTunes store, and will soon be released for Android.
