Pharmaceutical assay validation is both a good business practice and a requirement of the current Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations. This introductory course presents assay validation as specified in the ICH guidelines, USP, FDA documents and the literature.

Completion of this course will enable participants to plan, design and analyze data collection protocols to develop and improve chemical assays while also collecting the data needed to validate to the USP and ICH requirements. Additionally, participants will be able to design, execute, and report a statistically consistent validation of an analytical method including considerations such as accuracy, precision, specificity, limit of detection/limit of quantitation/linearity and range, and robustness and ruggedness.

Who Should Attend

This introductory seminar is for those working in chemical assay validation. It is intended for analytical laboratory chemists, supervisors and managers. Validation engineers, quality control/assurance personnel and others with an interest or responsibility for validation will likewise benefit.

Prerequisites

It is recommended that the participant read ICH Q2 (R1).

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Design an assay validation that uses Plackett-Burman DoE’s to demonstrate ruggedness with fewer experiments than the typical assay validation runs
  • Identify the sources of variation in a method
  • Quantify the best case and a worst level of variation
