Data Integrity for Pharmaceutical Chromatographers

Data integrity has been the subject of increasing scrutiny during pharmaceutical regulatory inspections in recent years.

Chromatographic data systems have received particular attention because of the potential for data manipulation to produce fraudulent data, or uncontrolled changes in processing parameters that compromise the comparability of results between runs.

This webinar explains the intention behind data integrity regulations, sets out current expectations and suggests an approach to compliance based on sound science.
