CVG 2022 Seminar-7: Stability Study for Pharmaceuticals

August 24, 2022 @ 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Speaker: Dr. Chung Chow Chan 

Seminar will be conducted online via Zoom @ 5:30 pm EDT


The purpose of stability testing in the pharmaceutical industry is to understand how the quality of a drug substance or drug product varies with time under the influence of a variety of environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and light.  The data that are collected from the stability studies will help to establish a re-test period for the drug substance or a shelf life for the drug product and recommended storage conditions.  This presentation will provide an overview of development and formal stability studies that will be used during the development of a drug product.
