• How To Understand ASTM E2500

    ASTM E2500 introduced the term “verification” but was essentially silent on the idea of “commissioning” and the term “qualification.” ASTM is a minimum standard, and teams are free to go beyond this minimum as long as the basic provisions are met. There are four basic approaches in the industry currently.

  • Water Activity Measurements And Microbial Contamination In Pharmaceutical Products

    Non-sterile pharmaceutical products are subject to microbiological examination prior to release and during stability testing. While the tests described in these chapters cannot be eliminated from protocol completely, USP <1112>, Application of Water Activity Determination to Nonsterile Pharmaceutical Products, suggests that water activity determination can be used to reduce the need for frequent microbial limit testing and screening.

  • Introduction To USP <922>: General Chapter For Water Activity Measurement

    The newly drafted USP <922> General Chapter describes the specific methods that pharmaceutical companies will use to calibrate, qualify, and use water activity instruments in their testing protocols. USP <922> includes a description of Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) measurements and states that it is the only method to reliably and accurately measure water activity when the sample contains other volatile compounds. The Lighthouse FMS-Water Activity Analyzer uses TDLAS to non-destructively and directly measure the water activity non-invasively of samples in a sealed glass vial.

  • Headspace Gas Ingress Testing For CCI

    Imagine a blue dye test, but replace the dye with a tracer gas. Headspace Gas Ingress Testing is a robust detection method of critical leaks. It is a rapid, non-destructive, analytical measurement and can be scientifically validated. Are you considering to upgrade your blue dye test, and do you want to learn more about this approach?
