Data based approach to Real time release testing

Vipul Doshi President Global Quality Assurance Cadila Healthcare Limited


Medicinal products must comply with their approved specifications before they are released into the market. Compliance with release specifications can be demonstrated by performing a complete set of tests on the active substance and/or finished product, according to the approved specifications. Under certain conditions, an alternative strategy to systematic end product testing is possible. 

This presentation will discuss this concept, which has been applied to sterility testing of terminally sterilized products and has become associated with parametric release applications. 

Recent guidelines adopted in the ICH context (ICH Q8, Q9 and Q10) have made it possible to apply a similar release decision process to tests other than sterility, this approach has been called Real Time Release Testing (RTRT). This presentation addresses the requirements for application of RTRT to different kinds of products e.g. chemical and biological products and its scope is to facilitate the introduction of RTR testing.
