Enhanced Approach Versus Traditional Approach for Analytical Procedures.

What are the differences?

The simple answer is that the Traditional Approach refers to what we have been doing for years. The Enhanced Approach considers and integrates the key concepts and strategies of QbD and Lifecycle management.

There are significant differences in the two approaches. One of the major ones is that the Enhanced Approach requires a different mindset and requires a shift of focus onto the quality of the data generated by the procedure rather than being on the procedure itself. Although it requires more work upfront, the enhanced approach does result in more robust methods throughout their period of use and saves time on root cause analysis investigations when performance problems occur during routine use. Application of the enhanced approach can also increase the success rate of method transfers. 
This webinar summarises and discusses the differences between the two approaches and provides a solid introduction to adopting the modern tools into your analytical procedure lifecycle.

Are you getting the most from your Self Inspection (Internal Audit) Program?

Most companies check the compliance box and meet the regulatory requirement to have a self inspection program in place. It is often designed only to monitor compliance with current GMP regulations and company SOPs. More often than not it happens once a year and bogs down QA resources. Did you know, it can do so much more?

In fact the self inspection program is one the most powerful tools you have in your Quality Management System toolbox. Unfortunately,  it is seldom designed to its maximum potential.

This 3 hour webinar offers advice on how to get the most from your self inspection (Internal audit) program

Laboratory Transfer and Verification of Analytical Procedures - Integrating Future Philosophies into Current Practice Technical

When you try to transfer or verify analytical procedures, is it frustrating and time consuming? Do methods which have been transferred still give issues in routine use? Would you like your procedures to be more robust with fewer problems throughout their lifecycle?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this webinar is for you.

In this 3 hour webinar, modern concepts such as QbD philosophies i.e risk assessment and method understanding are combined with our current practices to ensure a smoother method transfer process, a more robust performance, leading to fewer lab incidents/OOS results due to poor procedure perfomance in routine use.

Preparing and Understanding the Method Transfer Process (For QA Personnel)

Failures during method transfer continue to be a burden in the pharmaceutical industry, in particular for Importers/Distributors. The country from which we import the drug states the analytical procedure had been validated. Our contract testing labs are approved by our government agencies to test these products and the labs are generally extremely competent. So why do we still have problems?

This 2.5 hour webinar explains the process of method transfer from a non technical perspective for QA staff in a way that can help you communicate with the testing laboratories to improve the success rate of method transfers and gain an understanding of your procedure and the transfer process.

  • Pauline is keen and hardworking, she loves her sciences and passionate about what she does. I so much enjoyed working with her, she has provided great insight on many technical and scientific issues related to analytical method development and analytical method validation. Her most important quality is her patience and perseverance and of course, fun to work with
  • Contracted Pauline to assess analytical methods validation, and to subsequently create a 'gap' report - and then to work at 'fixing' the gap. Pauline was excellent in her attention to detail, and her thorough knowledge of what was needed. She also worked on several projects after that one - always with the same high standards and commitment to provide value to the client. I heartily endorse her work.
  • Pauline is an excellent professional in the life science business. She did a great job as project manager in analytical development and validation at SGS Life Science Services. She was appreciated by her colleagues and her customers.
  • Pauline's ability to understand and integrate the scientific challenges of industry, with government and academia are unsurpassed. I am so confident with her ability to deliver meaningful yet pragmatic leadership as it applies to the pharmaceutical industry that I have recommended her to numerous prominent companies who have subsequently hired her and been extremely happy with the results she is able to deliver.
