IT – supported stability testing

Tuesday, 09 November 2021, 4.00 p.m. – 5.45 p.m., Zoom


On the subject:

Stability tests to determine shelf lives or expiry dates of pharmaceutical products, cosmetics and foodstuffs are an essential component of quality assurance. Numerous national and international guidelines must be observed when planning, conducting and evaluating stability studies. Therefore, the ICH (International Council for Harmonization) has developed guidelines on stability studies, which have led to a harmonization of requirements.

In their short presentations, the two speakers focus on the approach and implementation in practice and show how IT solutions help to significantly simplify the entire directive-compliant administration and documentation of even the most complex stability tests with their corresponding test plans.
