Course description

During our pharmaceutical analysis training course, we explain the strengths and limitations of analysis and specific analytical methods. You learn how to apply the principles of quality management and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) to the testing environment in a pragmatic, effective way. We also advise you on data integrity and how to ensure that your laboratories are compliant.

Virtually all critical patient and business decisions made by QPs and other quality professionals are in some way based on data provided by an analytical laboratory. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that this data is accurate and reliable. In recent years, data integrity has become a very hot topic. Hence, it is essential that decision makers understand the basis of the analytical techniques used and their respective strengths and weaknesses.

This course seeks to provide a foundation of knowledge which enables QPs and others to judge analytical data, ask relevant questions to aid interpretation and know when to call for additional data/advice. This knowledge is also essential when auditing laboratories. 

Key Learning Objectives
On completion of this pharmaceutical analysis and testing course, delegates will know and understand:
- The essential components of a laboratory management system that can ensure data integrity
- The philosophy and principles of pharmaceutical analysis
- The basis for commonly used analytical techniques
- How to provide acting and trainee QPs with sufficient understanding of pharmaceutical analysis that enables them to have effective dialogue with the laboratories providing them with data


Please speak to Aimee Harding, QP Coordinator at NSF about entry requirements for both QP training and/or postgraduate qualifications.
