All analysts face the same situations as method validation is the process of proving that an analytical method is acceptable for its intended purpose. In order to resolve this problem, the analyst refers to regulatory or guidance documents, and therefore the validity of the analytical methods is dependent on the guidance, terminology and methodology,(More)
The implementation of quality systems in analytical laboratories has now, in general, been achieved. While this requirement significantly modified the way that the laboratories were run, it has also improved the quality of the results. The key idea is to use analytical procedures which produce results that fulfil the users' needs and actually help when(More)
HPLC separations of an unknown sample mixture and a pharmaceutical formulation have been optimized using a recently developed chemometric methodology proposed by W. Dewé et al. in 2004 and improved by P. Lebrun et al. in 2008. This methodology is based on experimental designs which are used to model retention times of compounds of interest. Then, the(More)
From a quality by design perspective, the aim of the present study was to demonstrate the applicability of a Bayesian statistical methodology to identify the Design Space (DS) of a spray-drying process. Following the ICH Q8 guideline, the DS is defined as the "multidimensional combination and interaction of input variables (e.g., materials attributes) and(More)
With the continual pressure to ensure follow-up molecules to billiondollar blockbuster drugs, there is a hurdle in profitability and growth forpharmaceutical companies in the next decades. With each success and failurewe increasingly appreciate that a key to the success of synthesized moleculesthrough the research and development process is the possession(More)
It is recognized that the purpose of validation of analytical methods is to demonstrate that the method is suited for its intended purpose. Validation is not only required by regulatory authorities, but is also a decisive phase before the routine use of the method. For a quantitative analytical method the objective is to quantify the target analytes with a(More)
Combinatorial chemistry is widely used in drug discovery. Once a lead compound has been identified, a series of R-groups and reagents can be selected and combined to generate new potential drugs. The combinatorial nature of this problem leads to chemical libraries containing usually a very large number of virtual compounds, far too large to permit their(More)
Nonaqueous capillary electrophoresis (NACE) was successfully applied to the enantiomeric purity determination of S-timolol maleate using heptakis(2,3-di-O-methyl-6-O-sulfo)-beta-cyclodextrin (HDMS-beta-CD) as chiral selector. With a background electrolyte made up of a methanolic solution of 0.75 M formic acid, 30 mM potassium camphorsulfonate and containing(More)
Based on toxicokinetic studies of a destructive sampling design, this work was aimed at selecting the number of time points, their locations, and the number of replicates per time point in order to obtain the most accurate and precise noncompartmental estimate of the area under the concentration-time curve (AUC). From a prior population pharmacokinetic(More)
The 3rd American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS)/Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Bioanalytical workshop in 2006 concluded with several new recommendations regarding the validation of bioanalytical methods in a report published in 2007. It was aimed to conciliate or adapt validation principles for small and large molecules and an(More)
