Proficiency testing in the pharmaceutical industry: residual solvents quantification

Solvents – organic volatile chemicals – are often essential components in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products: during synthesis, purification, crystallization, granulation or coating. They may also indirectly enter products from packaging and during storage.

As they have no therapeutic benefits and may be toxic to humans and the environment, residual solvents should be avoided if it is possible, and if not possible, they must be present below agreed ‘safe’ levels set by regulation, for instance the ICH Q3C guideline and the Pharmacopoeias.

To help laboratories demonstrate the quality of residual solvent analysis, and in turn help ensure compliance with the regulations, we have introduced a new trial sample to PHARMASSURE – our proficiency testing scheme for the pharmaceutical industry.

The new trial sample 2E for the determination of residual solvents includes nine common analytes.
