Event Abstract:

Several sartan, ranitidine, and metformin-based drug products have been recalled due to nitrosamine contamination, in unacceptable amounts, in these drugs. Since then, there has been increased scrutiny by the regulators to accurately identify and quantify mutagenic impurities in drug substances and products. The US FDA and other regulatory agencies have published analytical testing guidance documents regarding the evaluation of mutagenic nitrosamine impurities in these drug substances and drug products. Recently, sartan therapeutics were again recalled due to another known mutagenic impurity called azido biphenyl tetrazole (AZBT) impurity. Additionally, there have been recalls related to nitroso impurity in varenicline drug products.

This presentation will address the accurate determination of mutagenic azido impurities, nitroso drug substance related impurities (NDSRIs) and nitrosamine impurities in drug substances and products using liquid chromagraphy–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS) based analytical strategies that you can adopt to meet your nitrosamine detection and quantitation needs.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what mutagenic impurities are and the importance of characterizing and quantifying them
  • Learn about approaches for the confident identification and quantification of nitroso drug substance related impurities (NDSRIs) and nitrosamine impurities in APIs and drugs
  • Learn about approaches for the confident identification and quantification of azido impurities in five different sartan therapeutics

Who Should Attend:

  • Laboratory managers
  • Chromatographers
  • Analytical chemists and scientists
  • New product developers
  • Pharma quality control manager
