Key to Outsourcing Method Development and Validation: A Pragmatic Approach

RSSL

In an industry that is seeing an increasing level of work being outsourced, the Contract Research Organisation (CRO) of choice needs to have proven experience in both the pragmatism and flexibility of the method developer’s mind set and a regulatory background in validation. As companies are focussing on achieving ever shorter times of drug to market, it is vital that a tailored, pragmatic approach is adopted when engaging in both method development and validation activities for an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) or drug product (DP).
