SGS provides you with extensive knowledge and experience in pharmaceutical method development and validation for raw materials, APIs, finished products, cleaning and bioanalytical testing.

Life Science lab

To help you with pharmaceutical method development and validation processes, we offer development and documentation of analytical protocols and reports for proprietary and non-proprietary test methods and manufacturing processes. This is conducted in compliance with the Notes for Guidance Validation of Analytical Procedures, Definitions and Terminology and Validation of Analytical Procedures Methodology by the ICH (Q2A, Q2B) and FDA guidelines.

Once a method is validated, it may require transfer. Method transfer may involve comparative testing, co-validation between two sites (lab-to-lab), complete or partial revalidation and comprehensive documentation (transfer plan, protocol and report).
