Effective HPLC Method Development and Validation

Preparation, conduct and documentation for FDA/EMA compliance

Recorded, available at any time

Order Button

High-performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is the most frequently used analytical technique in (Bio)pharmaceutical development and QC laboratories. Methods should be validated to ensure consistency and accuracy of analytical data to make reliable decisions about safety and quality of medicinal products. Method development and validation are not independent from each other. Methods should be designed and developed using the "Quality by Design" concept with robustness for routine use in mind. Validation experiments and documentation must meet ICH Q2(R1) requirements. Therefore without good guidance the process can be quite time consuming and include high compliance risks.  

Key Questions related to Analytical Method Validation are:

  • What are FDA and international requirements?
  • What exactly are the expectations of inspectors?
  • What does (Quality by Design) mean for method development and validation?
  • Which parameters should be validated?
  • What are the validation requirements for preclinical and clinical phases I,II, and III?
  • Is there an ideal sequence for conducting validation experiments?
  • Are there good recommendations for acceptance criteria?
  • Who should get involved in method validation: development/QC labs?
  • Should compendial HPLC methods be validated?
  • Should we re-write compendial methods or can we use them as our SOP?
  • What information must be included in regulatory submissions?
  • I want to transfer a method from development to routine lab, do we need to revalidate?
  • We want to transfer a method to an other site, do we need to revalidate?
  • When should methods be revalidated and formally reviewed?
  • We have changed our method, should we revalidate?
  • We use software for automated method validation, should it be Part 11 compliant?

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, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international regulations and guidelines
  • Examples of warning letters and how to avoid them
  • Strategy for integrated method development and validation
  • Using the the Quality by Design (QbD) concept to ensure method robustness for routine use
  • Writing the validation plan
  • Selecting the right HPLC instrumentation: isocratic/gradient, PDA, LC/MS
  • Selecting parameters and conditions for HPLC method validation
  • Optimizing the sequence of experiments for HPLC method validation
  • Phase-appropriate method validation: preclinical, clinical I,II,III, manufacturing
  • Selecting acceptance criteria for HPLC method validation
  • Verification of compendial methods
  • Strategies for compliant method transfer
  • Regular revalidation and review of HPLC methods
  • Revalidation requirements after changes
  • Using software for automated method optimization and validation
  • Documentation for the FDA, other agencies
