About this course
Virtually all patient and business critical decisions made by Qualified Persons and other quality professionals are in some way made on the basis of data provided by an analytical laboratory. It is, therefore, of paramount importance that this data is accurate and can be relied upon. Hence, it is essential that these decision makers understand the basis of the analytical techniques used and their respective strengths and weaknesses.
This module seeks to provide a foundation of knowledge which will enable Qualified Persons and others to judge analytical data, ask relevant questions to aid interpretation and know when to call for additional data/advice. This knowledge is also essential when auditing laboratories.
The module is designed for delegates with a scientific educational background who wish to obtain a broader knowledge of Good Control Laboratory Practice (GCLP). The module may also be suitable for analytical chemists who are new to the pharmaceutical industry.
For delegates who already have a deeper knowledge of analysis and testing there will be opportunities to discuss issues with the course tutors.
- Principles of GCLP/laboratory management
- Handling atypical results (eg OOS/OOT results)
Philosophy and Principles of Analysis
- Sampling methods/regimes
- Analytical validation and method transfer
- Equipment maintenance and calibration
- Stability testing – protocols and methods
- Pharmacopoeia and monographs
Physicochemical Properties/Methods of Analysis
- Analytical method selection
- Physical properties of materials
- ‘Classical’ methods of analysis
- Spectrophotometric methods
- Chromatographic methods
- Proof of structure methods
- Biological assays
Discussion and Working Groups
A significant proportion of the course time will be devoted to group work, where delegates have the opportunity, through case studies, to put theory into practice. Additionally, discussion periods, including a course tutor panel session, provide delegates with an opportunity to obtain answers to their specific questions and concerns.
