Reducing risks


The pharmaceutical industry must release new and generic products to the market as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. This is to provide or maintain access to vital therapies whilst enabling healthcare providers to manage their costs. Fundamental to the acceleration of the drug development process is the application of improved analytics to aid API and formulation selection. 

During this workshop, we have invited Indian academics and industry key opinion leaders to guest lecture alongide Malvern Panalytical’s application specialists. They will share their experience of the use of morphological, structural and elemental analysis in support of rapid generic pharmaceutical product development. They will discuss regulatory advice relating to API characterization, aligned with ICH Q6A and Q3D, as well as guidance concerning both deformulation and in vitro bioequivalence assessment. Case studies which highlight the use of complementary analytical techniques to achieve better formulation understanding will also be presented. 

Alongside our workshop program, Malvern Panalytical is offering training and consultation opportunities, led by our applications team. This includes training in the use of advanced compound indexing methods for XRD solid form analysis. This support will enable you to obtain specific feedback on analytical challenges you are facing, as they relate to our products and solutions. **Please book your preferred time slot with**


This workshop will also be conducted in Ahmedabad on Mon - Tue, 12-13 Aug.
