Webinar: Increasing Efficiency in the Pharma Analytical Workflow through Reference Materials

 Event Overview

From analysis of APIs, to elemental impurities, to microbiology QC, Reference Materials are a critical component of your quality system. In this webinar we will discuss the differences between Reference Materials, Certified Reference Materials and Compendial Standards, how they are produced, and where each fit best within your analytical workflow.

 Key Learning Objectives

  • What are Reference Materials, Certified Reference Materials and Compendial Standards?
  • How do each of these fit within the Pharma QC workflow?
  • Understand when RMs, CRMs and Compendial standards are fit for purpose across analytical applications, from small molecule to microbiology to elemental analysis.

 Who Should Watch

  • Lab Managers
  • Research Scientists
  • Quality Control Technicians
