Course Description
Methods Development & Validation with a scientific approach & understanding basic elements of analytical method from Quality Systems & Measurement, Errors & Uncertainties. Goal-oriented method development (QbD & Risk Based Strategy) with a generic, iterative & modular approach to understanding validation and establish analytical method during development Various stages of the method followed by strategy of design, development & optimization presented. USP, ICH, AOAC guidances discussed. Presentation builds on data handling, documentation & regulatory requirements. Extensive guidance for preparing Validation Protocols depending on stages of IND, NDA submissions & Laboratory control, QA, QC. Statistical tools, SQC, SPC & Stability indicating assays included. Course is highly interactive & participative.
