Stability Testing in Pharmaceutical and API Industry

Learn how to design, conduct and document studies for FDA and ICH


Order Button

Stability testing and monitoring is a critical step in drug research, development and manufacturing. It impacts the safety of drugs and how pharmaceuticals are produced, packaged, labeled, stored and sold. Therefore stability testing is strictly regulated and heavily enforced by FDA and other agencies. Guidelines require to monitor degradation products over storage time to assure that the integrity of product  remains unchanged throughout its shelf life. However, stability testing is a complex process and despite of the fact that guidelines have been available since quite some time from ICH and other organization, industry still has problems to meet the expectations of inspectors.

Key Questions related to stability testing are:

  • Which guidelines should we follow; ICH, WHO, FDA?
  • Where can we get information on which countries follows which climate zone?
  • What are the exact temperatures?
  • What are the test times?
  • What are the conditions for accelerated testing?
  • How to predict shelf life from accelerated testing
  • What is matrixing?
  • What to test for bracketing?
  • What is the allowed time allowed between due date and analysis date for stability?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs and checklist will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA, ICH and WHO requirements and guidelines
  • Inspection and Enforcement practices: Examples for FDA warning letters
  • Stability testing along the drug life: preclinical and clinical phases, manufacturing
  • Developing a a stability plan and SOPs
  • Testing conditions for various climate zones and regions
  • Design of accelerated testing and estimating shelf life
  • Specific OOS and OOT requirements
  • Taking advantage of bracketing and and matrixing
  • Stress testing and enforced degradations:
  • Calibration and qualification of stability chambers
  • Validation of stability indicating analytical procedures
  • Potential pitfalls
  • Documentation requirements
