Pharmaceutical Analytical Methods Validation, Verification and Transfer Course (October 6-7, 2022) –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Validation, verification and transfer of analytical methods” training has been added to from offer.

In this course, general guidelines for determining analytical characteristics for different types of validation procedures are highlighted for drug substance and drug product analysis. Factors to consider for verification of compendial procedures will also be discussed.

In addition, different approaches for transferring an analytical procedure from one laboratory (transfer) to another laboratory (receiver) under different circumstances will be covered. Other topics related to obtaining reliable data will also be discussed. These topics include qualification of analytical instruments as well as how to define, manage and monitor specifications.

Reliable analytical results are needed to make informed decisions about product quality and safety in the pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, this analytical data is required for regulatory submissions in support of pharmaceutical product registrations. Therefore, meaningful experimental designs, including system suitability parameters, should be planned for the intended use of the procedure.

Due to the global nature of the pharmaceutical industry, other quality topics on regulatory (ICH) and compendial (USP) harmonization are also covered. These topics are valuable to scientists directly or indirectly involved in drug development and analysis. stability studies or regulatory/official submissions.
