Analytic method development, validation and transfer are key elements of any pharmaceutical development program. This technical brief will focus on development and validation activities as applied to drug products. Often considered routine, too little attention is paid to them with regards for their potential to contribute to overall developmental time and cost efficiency.
Methods are developed and validated to analyze in-process, finished product and stability samples, as well as swabs to verify the cleanliness of manufacturing equipment.
Typically, methods for in-process, uniformity of dosage units and dissolution sample analysis are developed and validated using UV, HPLC, UPLC, or GC procedures.
Methods used to perform chemical assay, identification, related substances/impurities or chiral purity testing on API and finished drug product are typically developed and validated using HPLC, UPLC or GC.
Methods developed for stability sample analysis are validated to ensure they are stability indicating.
All validations are performed according to FDA-ICH guidelines, client-approved protocols and standard operating procedures.
By working with Medicilon, you gain an experienced partner with a good working knowledge of method validation requirements suitable for different phases of development. To ensure methods meet regulatory requirements, we follow relevant ICH guidelines such as ICH Q2(R1) or compendia guidance in combination with client-specific protocols.
