Why Should You Attend:

This interactive course is designed to provide the participant with a knowledge of the requirements for dissolution instrument qualification, an area which has been changing rapidly over the last few years. Both the use of USP Performance Verification Tablets and mechanical approaches will be discussed, as well as the requirements presented in the USP and in a recent FDA Guidance. Pitfalls in the performance of the tests as well as instrument issues which are not addressed by the Qualification procedures will be addressed. Finally, some of the practical suggestions that can minimize both PVT and product failures will be presented. There will be ample opportunity for participant questions.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course the learner should

  • Identify the approaches to dissolution instrument qualification and the requirements expressed by USP and by FDA.
  • Perform the qualification procedures with techniques that will minimize qualification failures.
  • Evaluate and document the qualification results, and understand the potential impact of marginal results.
  • Understand some of the issues which are not addressed by the current qualification procedures.
  • Be aware of some of the practical considerations that can affect routine dissolution testing results, even with well qualified instruments.
