Ion Chromatography: A Versatile Tool in Pharma Analysis
Ion chromatography (IC) is the method of choice in pharma analysis to determine active ingredients, excipients, and traces of impurities, as well as metabolites in the form of organic and inorganic ions or polar substances, in a number of pharmaceuticals, pharmaceutical solutions, and even body fluids.
High standards have to be met by the pharmaceutical industry when it comes to drug quality and safety. These standards are documented in pharmacopoeias as officially recognized pharmaceutical rules, and published as legal tools of customer protection by authorities such as governments and medical societies. The identification of a drug depends on sensitive, reliable instruments and methods - as does the determination of the drug's compliance with applicable regulations. This whitepaper provides details on the the field of applications of IC in pharma analysis.
