Challenges of Analytical Method Transfer in the Pharmaceutical Industry

RSSL

The development and validation of suitable analytical methods is a critical part of the overall drug-development life-cycle. For the majority of products, particularly those that are clinically successful, the transfer of the analytical method between laboratories will be required.
