Course objectives
All PharmaTraining courses focus on two key objectives. These are to provide attendees with knowledge - information, which will assist you in making better judgements - and skills, which will allow you to apply the knowledge you have received. We guarantee to engage your interest and commitment on the course, and we expect our training to improve your effectiveness.

About this course
The purpose of this course is to give an overview of photostability,and where it fits in the stability testing programme and the importance of photostability. The course is highly interactive and held in a relaxed environment.

It will cover:
. Why do we do photostability tests?
. Concepts and background in photostability
. Identifying drug substances most likely to absorb light and display signs of poor photostability
. Understanding photostability terminology
. Where does phototstability fit in the overall stability testing program?
. Why does photostability matter? (exercise)

Who will benefit: The course is designed for people working in:
. Analytical Development
. Analytical Chemistry
. Stability Testing

Course Programme
Coffee and registration will be available from 8.30am, course proper will commence at 9.00am. We anticipate the course will finish at 5.00pm.

Formulating and manufacturing unstable products
. Formulation development and evaluation for photolabile materials
. Protection during the manufacturing process
. Getting the product to the patient

ICH guidelines for photostability testing: Using ICH Q1B guidance in practice
. understanding the terms and procedures used in the guideline

Practicalities
. Light source selection - Options 1 and 2
. Sample presentation
. Humidity and temperature control
. Selecting sample containers

Speaker:
Dr Michael Gamlen is Managing Director of Pharmaceutical Development Services Ltd, a pharmaceutical consultancy based in Nottingham (UK). Dr Gamlen has over 30 years experience of product stability testing. Awarded a First Class Honours degree in Pharmacy, specialising in Pharmaceutical Engineering, he studied for a PhD at Nottingham University. He was Head of Tablet Development at the The Wellcome Foundation for 15 years, and worked as an outsourcing manager before starting his consultancy business in 2000. Dr Gamlen specialises in managing product development, formulation, tablet and process development studies. He has been teaching professional tabletting courses for many years and his courses are highly rated, exceeding the expectation of the participants in many cases.

Michael continually updates the content of his courses with the latest guidance and extracts of up-to-the minute scientific papers. He provides a substantial body of relevant literature to all course participants as well as copies of all notes and guidance used and a workbook. He is a popular and highly respected presenter.
