About the webinar
Compliant documentation in the drug manufacturing process is essential. 21 CFR Part 11 compliance software helps achieve this from raw materials to finished goods. In addition, the qualifications of individual instruments benefit from software-supported functionality. Learn and discuss with experts how this software can be used in the spectroscopic analysis of raw materials, the manufacture of solid oral dosage forms using twin-screw extruders, and UV-Vis methods for performing dissolution testing of tablets. We will provide a brief overview of the use and benefit of compliance software spanning various departments.
