Controlling risks that compromise analytical method performance is an important aspect of Method Lifecycle Management (MLCM). MLCM is an approach to method management that ensures methods are fit-for-purpose throughout their lifetime.
The Stages of Method Lifecycle Management
Methods with greater agility, robustness, and capacity for change can help reduce regulatory burden, failure risk, and costs. Discover the stages, concepts, and terms that define lifecycle management, then explore them in depth below.
All successful quantitative LC-MS assays have something in common: high selectivity to accurately detect and identify analytes of interest, high sensitivity to precisely quantify the analytes at very low concentrations, and high reproducibility to ensure that the results can be trusted.
Sample handling and preparation can have a substantial effect on an analytical method’s variability and data quality. It is important to consider and address the risks associated with sample preparation as part of the method development process.
In our first episode, host Greg Martin of Complectors Consulting talks with Dr. Phil Borman of GSK about the advantages and influences of method lifecycle management including analytical quality by design, risk assessment tools, ICH guidances, and opportunities to kick off the approach in your organization.
In our second episode, we examine a method lifecycle management approach in monitoring method performance and applying MLCM to address real world issues like nitrosamines (ni-tros-a-mine) in Valsartan.
