Course objectives
New and important techniques in stability testing are facilitating product development using the
Quality by Design approach.  Using these it is possible to develop products more quickly and
reliably, through improved methods of shelf life prediction and excipient testing.  New stability
testing protocols using the published ASAP method from Pfizer can generate information quickly and reliably. The purpose of this course is to give a comprehensive, integrated overview of pharmaceutical stability testing in a highly interactive, relaxed environment: 

• Why is stability testing required for product registration and GMP purposes?
• What are the requirements for Clinical Trials, new, and existing products?
• How can stability testing be applied during product development to shorten development times as well as improve product quality
• Stability testing outsourcing - successful management and execution

It will include:
• A comprehensive review of ICH stability testing guidance ICH Q1A
• Pitfalls in stability testing.  Outsourcing—costs and benefits
• New approaches to stability testing including ASAP  and the role of peroxides in product
stability
• Stability Testing and QbD
• Workshops for attendees to present and discuss their own stability testing issues with the group 

Who will benefit:
The course is designed for people working in:
• Analytical and Product Development 
• Analytical Chemistry
• Stability Testing 
• Formulation Development 
• Regulatory Affairs 
• Pharmaceutical & Biopharmaceutical Production 
• Quality Control and Quality Assurance
• Technical Operations
