Abstract: How can you as an analytical chemist contribute towards developing life saving medicines within the pharmaceutical industry? Let’s explore this rewarding career path through learning the whats, whys, and hows. First, we’ll cover some basics about Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and regulatory requirements so we can understand what characteristics of a compound need to be controlled and why a wide variety of analytical methodologies are required. Then the fun stuff– how do we apply these methods to manufacturing and when do we need to test? We’ll go over how this all fits together, with some practical tips and case studies along the way, and include some insights on the more recent regulatory expectations for nitrosamine control.
