Small Molecules Analysis & Quality Control (QC)

Small molecules characterization, method development, validation, quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), safety, purity, potency

Small molecules method development and analysis which include medicinal chemistry, metabolite identification, impurity profiling, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics are key to the success of pharmaceutical QA/QC. Successful testing and release of small-molecule drugs is dependent on efficient analytical tools, validation guidelines and practices. Different methods are available for the separation and identification of small molecules such as wet chemistry, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), thin-layer chromatography (TLC), capillary electrophoresis (CE), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS).
