Method Validation in Pharmaceutical Analysis: A Guide to Best Practice (3527312552) cover image
Adopting a practical approach, the authors provide a detailed interpretation of the existing regulations (GMP, ICH), while also discussing the appropriate calculations, parameters and tests. The book thus allows readers to validate the analysis of pharmaceutical compounds while complying with both the regulations as well as the industry demands for robustness and cost effectiveness.
Following an introduction to the basic parameters and tests in pharmaceutical validation, including specificity, linearity, range, precision, accuracy, detection and quantitation limits, the text focuses on a life-cycle approach to validation and the integration of validation into the whole analytical quality assurance system. The whole is rounded off with a look at future trends.
With its first-hand knowledge of the industry as well as regulating bodies, this is an invaluable reference for analytical chemists, the pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutists, QA officers, and public authorities.

"The book contains a number of case studies and this brings the subject to life...This book would be a useful addition to the bookshelf of a pharmaceutical analysis laboratory."
BTS Newsletter, Summer 2005

"This book fills a gap for a comprehensive, comprehensible and illustrative guidebook and reference on current method validation in pharmaceutical analysis. I would thoroughly recommend purchase of this book which I would anticipate will become highly cited over the coming years."
Chromatographia

"...a well-written textbook with well-organized chapters...extensively referenced from world-renowned experts in the field."
