Ensuring Integrity of Drug Formulation from Development to QC
Substantial testing is required to assure that chemical and structural integrity are preserved throughout the drug development process to maintain its functionality. Among the techniques used to study changes in chemical integrity are infrared and Raman spectroscopy. This webcast will discuss where efficiencies can be made in data collection, regulatory compliance, instrument qualification, method validation, and data integrity all along the development pipeline up to final quality control (QC) testing. Learn how to quickly identify changes in polymorphic structure, monitor API to excipient distribution, and troubleshoot out-of-specification (OOS) product lots, while preserving data integrity needed for audits.
Key Learning Objectives
Microparticulates analysis for understanding component wear
Moving components generate particulates via physical or chemical breakdown, such as abrasive wear. These particles, typically 20-100 microns in size, can originate from sources like seals, rotors, or heat-induced degradation adjacent fluids (lubricant, fuel, etc.). Characterization of the particulates is a critical step in both the determination of their origin and in remediation. In this webinar, we present the use of a simple FTIR microscope for the identification of particles from automotive sources to show the utility of this method for rapid analysis.
