"What does risk assessment in the context of the life cycle of a high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) instrument really mean? This instalment of "Questions of Quality" will look at problems with an operational liquid chromatograph to see if they can be picked up in the performance qualification (PQ) or prevented in the operational qualification (OQ). The relationship between PQ and OQ and the design qualification (DQ) phases of the life cycle are also explored."

Course: How to Develop Stability Indicating HPLC Methods

How to Develop Stability Indicating HPLC Methods - Training Course from Mourne Training ServicesSummary:
Pharmaceuticals need to be assessed for stability to support the assigned shelf life. Therefore, when analysing stability samples obtained from these studies analytical methods are required which are stability indicating, i.e. there is a measurable response which correlates with degradation, if present. HPLC is a popular technique for monitoring the decrease in drug and corresponding increase in degradation products due to its separating abilities. However, the HPLC method must be developed carefully to ensure that degradation products are both separated and detected appropriately.

This two day training course is designed to provide a thorough understanding of how to develop HPLC methods specifically designed for stability indicating analysis of pharmaceuticals. The course will describe strategies for performing forced degradation studies and selecting optimal HPLC method parameters to ensure that all relevant degradation products are separated.
