  • Course description
    Pharmaceutical analysis is vital for successful drug development. It is used to determine a drug’s structure, level of active ingredient and to identify contaminants.

    Pharmaceutical analysts use a range of techniques to examine the constituents of various samples throughout the drug development process. These samples include raw materials used in manufacturing and body fluids collected during drug trials.

    As an analyst you must be familiar with the principles of modern instrumental analytical techniques, approaches and pharmacology. Regulation demands that you work under a strict quality assurance and quality control regime.

    We designed the course in close consultation with the pharmaceutical industry. Recognised industrial practitioners deliver some of the modules.

    All practical training takes place in our recently refurbished and highly-equipped laboratories.
