Development and Validation of Stability Indicating Methods

Planning - Design - Conduct - Documentation


Order Button

Stability indicating methods are quantitative test methods that can detect changes with time of drug substances and drug products. Information of type and amount of degradation products over time is important for safety of drugs. Therefore, FDA and other agencies but also good business practice require such methods to be well designed and validated.    

Key Questions related stability indicating methods are

  • What are stability indicating analytical methods
  • What are FDA/EU/ICH requirements
  • Where can I get practical advice from official committees?
  • Why do we need stability indicating methods?
  • When in product development should we develop stability indicating methods?
  • How to document the experiments and results for the FDA , EMEA and ICH
  • How to design development experiments?
  • How to select stress conditions?
  • how to avoid too much and too little degradation?
  • when should we validate the methods?
  • How to validate such methods?

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:

  • Regulatory expectations for stability indicating methods
  • FDA Warning Letters and how to avoid them
  • Business and compliance reasons for stability methods
  • Purpose and requirements for stability indicating methods
  • Planning for development
  • Design meaningful stress conditions
