Free Tool: Aide Mémoire for Analytical Method Transfer

An important step in the transfer of an analytical method to another laboratory is the review of the method prior to transfer. This assessment of the method should identify whether it is suitable for transfer and if any potential problems that may arise when the method is run in a different laboratory can be anticipated.

This review process is a major topic in the MTS course, Transfer of Analytical Methods for Pharmaceutical Analysis, and an aide mémoire to assist this review has now been developed based on the training course, which can be downloaded for free from the MTS website. The intention of the aide mémoire is to suggest common issues and problems to look out for during transfer. I've deliberately called it an 'aide mémoire' rather than a 'checklist' because I think that the term is a better description of the free tool in that it should help to anticipate common issues but is not intended as an exhaustive and complete list.

The aide mémoire is a document in progress, I will add to it from time to time based on feedback from the training courses that I deliver. If you have any ideas about what you think should be included then please send your suggestions to me using our Contact Us page.
