Validation of Analytical Methods for Pharmaceutical Analysis

Summary:

This two day course provides a detailed explanation of how analytical methods are validated, enabling a full understanding of method performance characteristics and associated statistics, and how they are applied to the techniques used for analysing drug related samples. This knowledge will enable informed interpretation of the current regulatory guidance on validation, namely ICH Q2(R1).

The approach of this course is to focus on the principles of method validation thereby enabling application to different types of samples and analytical techniques. Case studies are employed to allow consideration of real life scenarios. Examples relating to small molecule drug substances and formulated products, and to physiochemical methods for biotechnological/biological products, are included. Particular attention is paid to the most common analytical techniques used for pharmaceutical analysis, e.g., High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

Suitable for:

Anyone who needs to understand how methods are validated, either to design and carry out the investigation, or to interpret the data generated. For example:  Analytical chemists, laboratory managers/supervisors, quality control analysts/managers, quality assurance managers, and regulatory affairs managers.

Included:

Comprehensive course handouts; Certificate of Attendance; access to training resources via e-MTS; optional post training assessment (leading to Certificate of Training); post training support; and a copy of the MTS training book, Validation of Analytical Methods for Pharmaceutical Analysis. Lunch and refreshments are included for open enrolment training courses.

Transfer of Analytical Methods for Pharmaceutical Analysis

 

Summary:

Transferring an analytical method from one laboratory to another should be straightforward but unfortunately it is a process which is often problematic. Recognition of this has resulted in a new USP chapter <1224> and an update to chapter 6 of the EU GMP regulations. In this one day course the different approaches to transfer are explored fully and case studies are used extensively to follow the process from review of the method prior to transfer, to creating a suitable protocol with relevant acceptance criteria, and evaluating the results generated to assess whether the transfer has been successful.

Click here for Agenda & Detailed Course Description (printer friendly)

Suitable for:

Anyone involved in the transfer of analytical methods. For example:  Analytical chemists, laboratory managers/supervisors, quality control analysts/managers, quality assurance managers, and regulatory affairs managers.

Please note: Familiarity with the characteristics studied during analytical method validation is necessary for this course since these are used for method transfer. The course, Validation of Analytical Methods for Pharmaceutical Analysis, is recommended.

Included:

Comprehensive course handouts; Certificate of Attendance; access to training resources via e-MTS; optional post training assessment  (leading to Certificate of Training); and post training support. Lunch and refreshments are included for open enrolment training courses.

How to Develop Stability Indicating HPLC Methods

Summary:

Pharmaceuticals need to be assessed for stability to support the assigned shelf life. Therefore, when analysing stability samples obtained from these studies analytical methods are required which are stability indicating, i.e. there is a measurable response which correlates with degradation, if present. HPLC is a popular technique for monitoring the decrease in drug and corresponding increase in degradation products due to its separating abilities. However, the HPLC method must be developed carefully to ensure that degradation products are both separated and detected appropriately. 


This two day training course is designed to provide a thorough understanding of how to develop HPLC methods specifically designed for stability indicating analysis of pharmaceuticals. The course will describe strategies for performing forced degradation studies and selecting optimal HPLC method parameters to ensure that all relevant degradation products are separated.


Click here for Agenda & Detailed Course Description (printer friendly)


Suitable for:

This course is ideal for those who have some experience of using HPLC and need to ensure that they are stability indicating.

Included:

Comprehensive course handouts; Certificate of Attendance; access to training resources via e-MTS; optional post training assessment (leading to Certificate of Training); and post training support. Lunch and refreshments are included for open enrolment training courses.
