In this webinar Dr. Davani will discuss an overview of system suitability requirements, and allowed adjustments to specific chromatographic systems in the USP monographs based on General Chapter <621> Chromatography. In addition, the update on harmonization of this general chapter with the two other major pharmacopeias (EP and JP) will be discussed for the smooth procedure implementation by users when these changes become official.

Use of alternative method to compendial (official) procedure and the potential options available will be discussed. In addition, guidance on identifying effective system suitability parameters and acceptance criteria for up-to-date (modernized) USP monographs as well as different quantitation strategies for impurities will be provided.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • System suitability requirements and allowable chromatographic system adjustments
  • How to Establish meaningful criteria for system suitability criteria
  • Update on USP Monograph Modernization in collaboration with FDA
  • Update on Harmonization of <621>
  • Alternative procedure to official procedure
  • Quantitation of impurities using different approaches and pros and cons of each option

Who Will Benefit:

  • Analytical Chemists
  • Lab Supervisors and Managers
  • Reviewers of Compendial procedures

Topic Background:

System suitability (SS) requirements are integral part of chromatography methods and are needed for regulatory (FDA) and USP compliance. However, there are some older USP monographs that do not have adequate or effective SS parameters and criteria. As part of USP Monograph Up-to-Date (Modernization) Initiative, the new developed monographs and recent revisions include more meaningful system suitability requirements. Attempts are also underway to modernize the remaining outdated monographs. The details and insights to address these issues will be discussed using some real examples and case studies. In addition, General Chapter <621> is undergoing international harmonization with European Pharmacopeia (EP) and Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP). The proposed updated harmonization revisions and the impact on the monographs and compliance will also be discussed.
