The United State Pharmacopoeia, USP has significantly changed the way metal analysis in drugs and dietary supplements. In January 2010 USP proposed three new chapters on elemental impurities (<232>, <2232>, and <233>) with new requirements for limits and recommendations for analysis metal analysis in drugs and dietary ingredients.
The final version is expected to be released in late 2010, and by 2013 the current chapter <231> will be obsolete.
This course will cover instrumentation, method development and method validation for analyses of elemental impurities in pharmaceutical materials currently being tested using USP Chapter Heavy Metals <231>. The course will be taught in light of the elements and limits proposed in the draft chapter <232> Elemental Impurities, with an emphasis on ICP and ICP-MS analyses consistent with USP general chapter Plasma Spectrochemistry <730> and the default methodology proposed in draft chapter <233> Elemental Impurities - Procedures.
