  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ ⇐.

Product validation

  2. 2. DEFINITION- Validation is a key process for effective quality assurance. “Validation is establishing documented evidence which provides a high degree of assurances that a specific process or equipment will consistently produce a product or result meeting its predetermined specifications and quality attributes.” or Defined as the verification, by data and analysis that the design objectives of a given facility, system, apparatus or procedures are reliably fulfilled in routine operation 2
  3. 3. The major reasons for validation are: • Quality assurance: Validation checks the accuracy and reliability of a system or a process to meet the predetermined criteria. A successful validation provides high degree of assurance that a consistent level of quality is maintained in each unit of the finished product from one batch to another batch. • Economics: Due to successful validation, there is a decrease in sampling and testing procedures and there are less number of product rejections and retesting. This leads to cost-saving benefits. 3
  4. 4. • Compliance: For compliance to current good manufacturing practices, validation is essential. Validation involves in the steps: 1. Choosing the desired attributes of the product. 2. Determining specifications for those attributes. 3. Selecting appropriate processes and equipment. 4. Monitoring and testing processes, equipment and personnel while in operation 5. Examining test procedures themselves to ensure their accuracy and reliability. 4
  5. 5. PRODUCT VALIDATION Product validation is associated with validation of the full-scale manufacture of numerous earlier aspects of product development that are critical to the subsequent phases of the process. Product validation involves following steps: • validation of raw materials • validation of excipients. • validation of analytical methods • validation of finished product 5
  6. 6. VALIDATION OF RAW MATERIALS • Validation of raw materials is one of the major causes of product variation or deviation from specification. The API may represent the most uncontrollable component in the complete product . • The validation process of dosage form begins with the validation of raw materials ,both API and excipients. • Preformulation is one of the critical step to be validated in product validation • Physical characters such as drug and particle size can affect material flow and blend uniformity. • Chemical characters like impurities can effect stability of drug. The hygroscopic nature is important in both handling and reproducibility of the manufacturing process. 6
  7. 7. VALIDATION OF EXCIPIENTS Excipients can represent less then 1% of a tablet formula Factors to be aware of are • The grade and source of the excipients • Particle size and shape characteristics and • Lot-to-lot variability Example : Microcrystalline cellulose(MCC) used as diluents shows significant changes in the chemical composition, crystalinity, particle size between different lots. Differences in particle size of MCC can affect wet granulation/blend uniformity of tablet formulation. In direct compression formulations differences in particle size distribution between lots can result in • Non uniformity in initial mix • Materials segregate during compression. 7
  8. 8. VALIDATION OF ANALYTICAL METHODS Accuracy of method: • Ability of a method to measure the true value of a sample. Specificity: • Ability to accurately measure the analyte in the presence of other components Repeatability:( in day /out of day variation ) • Does the precision and accuracy of the method change when conducted numerous times on the same day and repeated on a subsequent day? 8
  9. 9. Reproducibility:( between operator variation ) • Repeat the precision and accuracy studies within the same lab using the same instrument but different analysts to challenge the reproducibility of the method. Precision: (between instrument variation ) • How will different instruments within the same lab run by the same analyst affect the accuracy and precision of the method. Ruggedness:( between laboratory variation) • Will the precision and accuracy of the method be same between the development and quality control lab? 9

  12. 12. TABLET COMPRESSION The following in-process tests should be examined during the compression stage- • Appearance • Hardness- 4 -8 kg/cm • Tablet weight-90-110% • Friability-0.5-1% • Disintegration-15-30 min • Weight uniformity 12
  13. 13. TEST FOR TABLET COATING • cracking or peeling of the tablet • color uniformity • coating efficiency should be determined for the coating operation 13
  14. 14. TEST IN- PROCESS TEST Finished product • Moisture content of dried granulation- usually less then 2% • Granulation particle size distribution • Appearance • Individual tablet weight • Tablet hardness • Tablet thickness • friability • Disintegration • stabilty • Appearance • Assay • content uniformity • Tablet hardness • Tablet thickness • Impurity profile • dissolution 14
