Even though the Quality-by-Design (QbD) principle is well known in the industry to improve the quality of data and efficiency of operations, it is a new concept for analytical laboratories. This is changing since regulatory agencies such as the US FDA and European counterparts are heavily promoting and supporting QbD. This presentation gives an overview of the principles and regulatory requirements. In addition we will discuss benefits for laboratories and clients, and we will go through the process and entire steps of QbD in laboratories using the “Development and Validation of Analytical Methods” as an example. Attendees will get a good understanding on what QbD is and how to implement if for laboratories..

Key Questions related to quality-by-design for laboratories:

  • What are the key applications of QbD for Analytical Laboratories
  • What are the advantages for the laboratories and customers?
  • What is the situation in the industry?
  • What is the process of analytical QbD
  • Are there examples for the analytical target profile (ATP)
  • Method design and development
  • How to define design space and method operational ranges
  • Is the validation different from ICH Q2?

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 an overview and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, test scripts, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation. The seminar lasts one hour and will be conducted over the phone and supported by the Internet.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Introduction to analytical QbD
  • Industry initiatives for QbD in analytical laboratories
  • Applications of QbD for Analytical Laboratories
  • Traditional validation vs. QbD validation
  • Definitions: Analytical Target Profile (ATP), Critical Method Parameters (CMP),
    Critical Method Attributes (CMA), Method Operational Design Range (MODR)
  • The 6-stage process of analytical QbD
  • Analytical target profile (ATP)
  • Method design and development
  • Sources of variability impacting critical method attributes
  • Risk assessment to determine critical method variables
  • Multivariate Design of Experiments (DoE)
  • Design space and method operational ranges
  • Validation / qualification
  • Control strategy
  • Continuous improvement
  • Advantages of QbD for laboratories, Industry concerns
  • EMA/FDA answers to frequently asked questions
