Stability Testing Software for Pharmaceutical Industry
In the Life Sciences Industry, Stability Studies are performed to understand drug product behaviour under different storage conditions during its shelf life. Stability Studies help in assuring the Product efficacy. Pharmaceutical Industries constantly emphasize on stability testing of their products to ensure that they conform to set procedures and standards.
Three batches of samples are kept for stability study (Accelerated, intermediate and long term) for every new drug product in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech Industry. Afterwards, a minimum of one batch per year of each product will be considered as exhibit batch and it is subjected for Long Term condition. As per the ICH (Q1A) and ICDRA guidelines a Stability protocol is maintained for each product code and the stability Conditions and Intervals must be defined.
For a Long Term stability study the frequencies to be followed as Initial are, 3,6,9,12,18, 24, 36 and 48 months. For Intermediate, the frequencies are Initial, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. Accelerated stability must have the frequencies as Initial, 1, 2, 3 and 6 months. Subsequently any Changes in formulation, manufacturing process, Source of API, manufacturing equipment, batch Size will trigger additional Stability Studies.
The persistence of stability testing in pharmaceutical industry stands to be a key procedural component in the present pharmaceutical development program for a new drug as well as new formulation
Current Stability Study Challenges in Biotech and Pharmaceutical QC Laboratory
- Managing stability schedules, tracking, and meeting the timeline is challenging due to large volumes of samples and their Frequencies.
- Manual management of the stability batch schedules requires extensive time and effort and exposes the process to data integrity issues. Since a large number of samples undergo Stability Studies, there is a possibility of delayed testing. This can lead to deviation in the process and poses the risk of non-compliance to the Stability Schedule.
- Manually prepared data may include errors leads to data Integrity Issues. It also reduces the ability of organizations to leverage the data for making informed decisions, drawing conclusions and having final discussions.
- Manual stability testing makes it difficult for organizations to integrate the Stability Studies procedures with OOS/OOT.
- It has been found that manual stability testing methods may exclude crucial parameters which indicate stability like related substances, microbial limit test, etc. This renders the testing procedures to be inadequate and inefficient.
AmpleLogic Stability Study Management and Lab Sample Tracking Software
Stability Management Software by AmpleLogic is a complete cGMP software to meet the requirements of biotech, life sciences, pharmaceutical stability testing programs and stability management.
With the stability software, clients can streamline the streamline and testing processes for their organization. Customers have the option to define the testing parameters for stability studies. The software can be optimized for the organization by defining other parameters like sampling time points, package types and testing methods.
It records all the conditions and parameters under which a study is conducted and keeps track of the stability chambers available. A set of standard reports are delivered through the module for reporting of the stability protocol and its associated results.
Stability Schedule Software is developed on AmpleLogic’s LOW CODE PLATFORM and is Fully compliant with 21CFR Part 11, EU Annex 11, GMP, MHRA and other regulatory standards
