A Refractive Index Detector (RID), also known as a Refractometer or Refractive Index Detector, is a detection device commonly used in High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and other liquid chromatography techniques. RIDs operate based on the principle of measuring changes in the refractive index of a sample as it elutes from the chromatographic column. Here areContinue reading “Refractive Index Detector (RID)”
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) detectors are essential components of HPLC systems that help identify and quantify analytes in a sample as they elute from the chromatographic column. There are various types of HPLC detectors, each with its own strengths and limitations. Here are some common types of HPLC detectors: The choice of detector in HPLCContinue reading “Different Types of HPLC Detectors”
The angle of repose is an important concept in pharmaceuticals and various other industries. Importance of Angle of Repose
ALCOA is a commonly used acronym for “attributable, legible, contemporaneous, original and accurate”. Data needs to be complete, consistent, enduring and available along with all other attributes mentioned in definition. ALCOA Plus includes all the attributes of ALCOA, plus an additional attributes “complete, consistent, enduring and available” as completeness, consistency, durability and availability is importantContinue reading “Data integrity Principle: ALCOA to ALCOA Plus”
Data integrity is an important current issue for regulators around the world. The data integrity-related cGMP violations have led to several regulatory actions, including warning letters and import alerts. Data integrity is very important in pharmaceuticals to ensure that the final product meets all the requirements as per standard. Data integrity is defined as theContinue reading “Data Integrity in the Pharmaceutical Industry”
HPTLC is the improved method of TLC which utilizes the conventional technique of TLC in a more improved way. It is also known as flat-bed or planar chromatography as the stationary phase used is flatbed like surface.
Root cause analysis is a methodology to find the primary cause of problem, by tracking back the actions which lead to the nonconformance(problem) and helps to solve the problem. Root cause analysis is used to identify the problem. What happened? why it happened? and then to determine, what improvements or changes are required to overcomeContinue reading “Root Cause Analysis and Tools Used for RCA- Pharmaceuticals”
Lighting at work is very important to the health and safety of everyone using the workplace. Poor lighting can affect the health of the people working in any industry causing headaches, eye strain, and migraine. Poor lighting can harm the business in the form of errors in work, absenteeism, and reduced staff efficiency and productivity.Continue reading “Light intensity for Pharmaceutical Area”
The stability of the pharmaceutical product is its ability to withstand environmental changes like temperature, humidity, and light for a particular period, without any visible changes.
System suitability test (SST) is a test to determine the suitability and effectiveness of a chromatographic system prior to use.
