Analyzing Water Content in Solid Pharmaceuticals
A new approach for the analysis of water in solid pharmaceutical products using headspace gas chromatography (HSGC) with an ionic liquid (IL)-based open tubular capillary GC column has been proposed by scientists at the University of Texas at Arlington (Texas, USA). Published in the Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis, the study states that the sensitivity of the method is 100 times that of the commonly used volumetric Karl Fischer Titration (KFT) (1).

UHPLC Method Development and Modelling in the Framework of Quality by Design
The goals in ultrahigh-pressure liquid chromatography (UHPLC) method development are to first find the best separation, second find the best column, and third find the most robust method in a multifactorial Design Space. Trial and error methods are not sufficient anymore and solid science based on Quality by Design (QbD) principles is required. Control strategies and continual improvements of the methods are necessary, which offer much greater flexibility in the quality control laboratories than before. Modelling tools based on QbD principles used in method development give transparency to the control of multivariable influences and achieve faster drug applications and commercial authorization by the regulatory agencies.
