Course description

View Course Outline

Every drug product must undergo sufficient stability testing before it can be introduced to the market. While ICH has standardized and harmonized the stability testing process, there are still numerous challenges that need to be addressed to ensure that stability testing is conducted accurately. Inadequate stability testing can cause delays in product introduction, which is why all drug companies need to ensure that their programs meet acceptable standards.

This accredited training course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the science and principles behind stability testing for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and cosmetic products. The course will cover kinetic approaches to chemical stability, the advantages, and limitations of accelerated stability testing, as well as degradation caused by chemical, physical, and microbiological factors.

The course will also cover data analysis, and practical aspects of stability testing, such as the role of packaging in stability. Considerable attention will be given to analytical methodology, data analysis, and data management. Participants will also receive a thorough review of current FDA Stability guidelines and ICH Guidelines on stability. The course will also include a workshop that provides participants with hands-on experience in data and statistical analysis.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the scientific and regulatory terminology in stability
  • Identity the stability protocols and data acceptable to FDA and ICH
  • Design a stability program
  • Analyze and interpret stability data and write stability report

The course will also include a workshop that provides participants with hands-on experience in data and statistical analysis.
