Course Description
This intensive, 2-day course will take participants on a journey showing the different functions and responsibilities required by an analytical group through all the stages of drug development. It will begin with understanding regulations to build a foundation of how a compliant lab and strong methods should be built, then will continue through the evolution of the test methods and functionality of an analytical group through the method validation stage. Throughout this journey different strategies for developing, assessing, qualifying and validating test methods to meet ICH guidelines will be examined. Select characterization methods, new technologies and how they fit into an analytical program will also be evaluated.
