Course Description
This Short Course offers and outlines a systematic, sequential approach to the Development & Validation activities while emphasizing the rationale of a scientific approach & understanding of the basic elements of Analytical Methods from Quality Systems and Measurement Uncertainty/Total Error perspectives. The organization of these discussions provides the schematics of goal oriented Methods Development within the framework of a very generic, iterative & modular approach to understand validation and will introduce several new concepts, including recognition of the Critical Quality Attributes of the Analytical Method as a measurement process while moving thru Design & Development/Optimization and subsequent activities. It aims at providing a very generic roadmap starting with the Quality aspects and following thru with the various stages, including a Risk based strategy of Design, Development (including Sample Prep.), Optimization and finally arriving at the Pre Validation criteria. Extensive discussions going over the Guidelines from ICH, Q2R(1) and other sources like USP, EP, AOAC and others will be discussed. The presentation builds on data handling, documentation & Regulatory requirements for various stages of Drug Development (IND, NDA, ANDA,,,). Extensive guidance for preparing validation protocols for stages of IND, NDA & laboratory control, QA, QC, statistical tools, SQC, SPC & stability indicating assays will be included. The course is highly interactive & participative.
