Based on international guidelines (ICH, FDA and WHO) stability studies have to be performed on drug substances (DS) and drug products (DP) in order to guarantee quality and efficacy during whole life cycle. Stability testing encompasses all phases of the drug development process, but is also required for the registration phase and beyond to show consistent quality. Our stability studies for pharmaceuticals help you to measure and document time relevant changes to the quality, safety and efficacy of drug products and drug substances.
Why choose stability studies for pharmaceuticals from SGS?
We can help you:
- Simulate conditions under which a drug substance or drug product is subjected – from manufacturing to final application
- Determine how the quality of a drug substance or drug product varies under influence of temperature, humidity and light
- Define the appropriate conditions and timeframe, accounting for the fact that most chemical reactions follow logarithmic and not linear functions
- Define retest periods of drug substances or the shelf-life of drug products and recommended storage conditions
- Demonstrate that the drug product is in compliance with the acceptance criteria throughout its lifecycle
