Smithers expert Paul Cummings to present at Smithers E&L USA 2020 conference in October

Smithers expert Paul Cummings is giving a presentation on challenges in leachable method development and validation at the upcoming Smithers E&L USA 2020 conference in October* in Bethesda, Maryland.
 
“Because every combination of analyte and drug product is unique, it can be difficult to develop and validate the right analytical method right away,” said Cummings. “If you decide too quickly that a method is ready for validation, you can encounter unexpected roadblocks that slow down the process significantly.”
 
Cummings will present several case studies of validation processes that did not proceed according to plan and discuss strategies to increase the probability of success.
 
“The Smithers E&L conference is designed to help attendees deepen their understanding of the industry, including best practices,” said Ashli Speed, Conference Producer, Smithers. “Paul’s presentation illuminates some common challenges and how to anticipate them, giving our attendees practical tips for keeping their processes running smoothly.”

Cummings is also leading a pre-conference masterclass on extractables and leachables with Senior Independent Consultant Dr. Daniel Norwood. Some topics on the masterclass agenda include:
  • History of the FDA
  • United States regulatory policy and standard setting
  • Risk assessments in manufacturing systems
  • Extractable elements
  • Best practices for USP General Chapters <1663> and <1664> | download our webinar on <1663> and <1664>
