2013-12-09 14:59:11 - In pharmaceutical manufacturing, inaccurately measured ingredients can lead to bad batches and waste.
If not caught in the manufacturing process, defective products could end up in the hands of consumers, potentially causing physical harm. A new series of white papers explains the importance of weighing processes to ensure consistent final product quality.
Carefully selecting a weighing solution to match specific process requirements is critical in pharmaceutical manufacturing because weighing processes can contribute significantly to consistent final product quality. When developing processes based on the Quality-by-Design (QbD) concept, steps should be taken to ensure quality is built-in. Weighing-process data also can be captured and used to further refine quality.
QbD incorporates the entire development and production life-cycle, including specification of the desired product performance, product design, process design, and process performance to ensure quality in every
process step. It is a scientific, risk-based approach to identify process errors early so that proactive steps may be taken to ensure safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals.
To explain the potential influence of QbD in weighing processes and product quality, METTLER TOLEDO experts have recently published three new white papers, "QbD and Weighing: Ensuring Accurate Measurement," "QbD and Weighing: Building Consistent Processes" and "QbD and Weighing: Integrating Weighing Process Data." These white papers explore various aspects of weighing quality within pharmaceutical manufacturing and examine the relevance of weighing processes for QbD frameworks. These are educational tools for anyone involved with quality control in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
