This webinar discusses about total solution approach for USP Chapters <232>/ <233> and ICHQ3D. We will clarify regulatory requirements and recommended analytical methods for elemental impurities analysis in Pharmaceuticals. Join us to learn about total workflow of microwave digestion for sample preparation and instrumental analysis using ICPMS following total regulatory compliance for data management. Also learn about how to overcome the challenges posed by ICHQ3D guideline, by removing metals from APIs or intermediates using metal scavengers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Elemental Impurities Regulations: USP Chapters <232>/ <233>, ICH Q3D
  • Elemental Analysis Workflow using ICPMS in compliance with USP <232> and <233>
  • Implementing Microwave Digestion technology for Sample preparation 
  • Mitigating the common Metal Impurities in Pharmaceutical Products using Metal Scavengers
