Department of Pharmaceutical analysis & QA/QC

The science and art of determining a drug in terms of its quality and quantity is challenging. As there is no 'second quality' in drugs, production of safe and potent drugs essentially require analytical technology. It plays a pivotal role from the analysis of minute amounts from complex biological samples to the quality control of finished dosage forms. The analytical results play decision making roles in pharmaceutical research and production

Scope

  • The course is designed in order to fulfill the needs of pharmaceutical Industries in quality control & quality assurance departments. The student gets thorough knowledge on various classical and modern analytical techniques. National and international regulatory requirements with respect to quality of pharmaceyticals, food and cosmetics are also dealt.

Objectives

  • The handling and trouble shooting of the sophisticated analytical instruments like HPLC, GC, Flame photometer etc.
  • Exhaustive knowledge of analytical technology from classical chemical methods to modern analytical methods including bioanalysis.
  • The analytical and bioanalytical method development and validation, stability studies, impurity profiling, pharmacokinetic studies, study on drug interaction and poison analysis.
