Instrumental liquid chromatography is an analysis are widely used to determine purity, the impurities, and the degradation products of pharmaceuticals. The focus of most validation work is on the methodology, the standard operating procedure (SOP). But validation of the instrumentation and other associated items of column, solvents, and other reagents and chemicals is also an area of focus in an audit.
Why should you Attend: In order to meet US EPA or FDA requirements, a method must meet many stringent requirements. The more important of these for specific analytical methods are method validation and instrument validation. To not do so is a non-compliance in which any data is not usable or reportable.
Areas Covered in the Session:
The pumping system
The detection system
The Data System
Precision and the various measures of precision (repeatability, reproducibility, ruggedness, robustness)
Limits of detection and quantitation, linearity
Selectivity, interferences, and specificity
