Pharma & biopharma learning center subtopics

Drug Discovery & Development Information

Modern drug discovery is the convergence of several scientific disciplines to find new medicines to cure disease or relieve suffering. The pharmaceutical pipeline is filled with approximately 5,000–10,000 drug compounds to only one approved commercially available drug.

Pre-Clinical and Clinical Drug Testing Information

In pharmacokinetic studies, bioanalysis method validation is crucial to minimizing random error and systematic bias, which ensures quality of analytical results. Bioanalytical method validation is a controlled procedure that comprises all the vital steps to establish that a certain method is capable of producing accurate, dependable and reproducible results that are appropriate for a specific analytical application.

Pharmaceutical QA/QC Information

Modern advances in pharmacology have resulted in increased life expectancy and reduced suffering of patients fighting disease. It is the frail and vulnerable that have come to rely on modern medicines. Consequently, it is paramount that prescribed drugs have the desired therapeutic efficacy, without fear of harmful side effects from impurities. For healthcare systems to provide quality care, prescription medicines must meet regulatory quality assurance standards.

Pharmaceutical Data Management Information

Regulatory inspections of pharmaceutical companies are increasing. Integrated informatics solutions allow you to provide evidence that your GMP processes are validated, that you are using appropriate resources, and that your analytical data are accurate, complete, and consistent. You can be sure that you have full data integrity, processes are managed according to 21 CFR part 11 requirements, and that your audit checklist will satisfy the inspectors.
