Quality control & Assurance in Analytical Chemistry

  1. 1. Quality control in Analytical Chemistry 1September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  2. 2. Quality • In manufacturing, a measure of excellence or a state of being free from defects, deficiencies and significant variations. It is brought about by strict and consistent commitment to certain standards that achieve uniformity of a product in order to satisfy specific customer or user requirements. • ISO 8402-1986 standard defines quality as "the totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bears its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs." • If an automobile company finds a defect in one of their cars and makes a product recall, customer reliability and therefore production will decrease because trust will be lost in the car's quality. 2September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  3. 3. • Quality control is an essential operation of the pharmaceutical industry. Drugs must be marketed as safe and therapeutically active formulations whose performance is consistent and predictable. New and better medicinal agents are being produced at an accelerated rate. At the same time more exacting and sophisticated analytical methods are being developed for their evaluation. Dictionary definition of QC: Quality control means checking and directing the degree or grade of excellence of processes and products ISO-Quality The totality of features and characteristics of a product, process or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs ISO-QA All those planned and systematic actions necessary to provide adequate confidence that a product, process or service will satisfy given quality requirements 3September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  4. 4. DEFINITIONS True Value The known, accepted value of a quantifiable property Measured Value The result of an individual’s measurement of a quantifiable property Accuracy How well a measurement agrees with an accepted value Precision How well a series of measurements agree with each other Systematic Error Avoidable error due to controllable variables in a measurement Random Errors Unavoidable errors that are always present in any measurement. Impossible to eliminate • An analysis provides chemical or physical information about a sample. The component of interest in the sample is called the analyte, and the remainder of the sample is the matrix. • In an analysis we determine the identity, concentration, or properties of an analyte. To make this determination we measure one or more of the analyte’s chemical or physical properties • Analysis, a determination and a measurement 4September 29, 2015 Andhra university

  16. 16. For Drug 1.The identifying name or mark of the new drug, along with its accepted chemical name, as well as any code names, synonyms, non-proprietary and brand names which may be known. 2. The chemical structure or other specific identification of the composition of the new drug, such as its molecular formula and molecular weight. 3. The source of the new drug, along with information concerning the role of the manufacturer in its production, packaging and distribution, relevant data showing whether the drug is of domestic or foreign origin, and whether or not it is a product of private formula or custom manufacture. 4. The tests applied to control the potency, purity and safety of the new drug, and 5.

  23. 23. Sensitivity • The ability to demonstrate that two samples have different amounts of analyte is an essential part of many analyses. A method’s sensitivity is a measure of its ability to establish that such differences are significant. Sensitivity is often confused with a method’s detection limit, which is the smallest amount of analyte that we can determine with confidence. • Usually regarded as detection limit • Capability of a method or instrument to discriminate between measurement responses – but this term is often used without defining what is intended (minimum detection or quantitation) • A sensitivity QC describes the capability of measuring a constituent at low levels – a Practical Quantitation Level describes the ability to quantify a constituent with known certainty 23September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  24. 24. Bias • Bias is systematic or persistent distortion of a measurement process that causes error in one direction • A bias can result from: – biased sampling design – calibration errors – response factor shifts – unaccounted -for interferences – chronic sample contamination 24September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  25. 25. Safety • Materials - High quality raw materials. This includes defining specifications for the materials • Preparation - Preventing foreign bodies from entering products, enabling the management of allergens, and controlling pests - a clean and safe water supply, for air filtration, and for any material that will come into contact with our product, to guarantee that the materials, equipment and manufacturing environment are all designed to produce safe products. - We follow certified cleaning and sanitation practices at every step of production • Processing - We prepare products in quantities that provide an appropriate and consistent dosage of any nutrient, to avoid any harm linked to over- or under-dosage. And we process at optimum temperatures to retain its nutritious value, while removing dangerous microorganisms and preventing the formation of chemical contaminants • Testing • Packaging and transportation 25September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  26. 26. Specificity & Selectivity • Selectivity of a method refers to the extent to which it can determine particular analytes under given conditions in mixtures or matrices, simple or complex, without interferences from other components in the mixture. “Specificity is the ultimate of Selectivity” • Selectivity is very often expressed in combination with words such as adjustment ,tuning ,optimization ,predetermined ,enhancement ,and coefficients ,as well as selective enrichment • The term “specific” can of course be used without confusion to denote a physical quantity obtained after division of a measurement by mass, e.g., specific volume. 26September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  27. 27. Robustness and Ruggedness • For a method to be useful it must provide reliable results. Unfortunately, methods are subject to a variety of chemical and physical interferences that contribute uncertainty to the analysis. When a method is relatively free from chemical interferences, we can use it on many analytes in a wide variety of sample matrices. Such methods are considered robust. • Random variations in experimental conditions also introduces uncertainty. If a method’s sensitivity, k, is too dependent on experimental conditions, such as temperature, acidity, or reaction time, then a slight change in any of these conditions may give a significantly different result. A rugged method is relatively insensitive to changes in experimental conditions. 27September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  28. 28. – The Mean- measure of central tendency – The Range- difference between largest/smallest observations in a set of data – Standard Deviation measures the amount of data dispersion around mean 28 Statistical control September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  29. 29. The Mean • To compute the mean we simply sum all the observations and divide by the total no. of observations. 29September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  30. 30. The Range • Range, which is the difference between the largest and smallest observations. 30September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  31. 31. Standard Deviation • Standard deviation is a measure of dispersion of a curve. • It measures the extent to which these values are scattered around the central mean. 31September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  32. 32. • Extend the use of descriptive statistics to monitor the quality of the product and process • Statistical process control help to determine the amount of variation • To make sure the process is in a state of control Statistical process control 32 32September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  33. 33. Control chart • Powerful, easy-to-use technique for the control of routine analyses • ISO/IEC 17025 demands use wherever practicable • It is hard to imagine quality management systems in laboratories without control chart • Assign a target value • Certified value of a RM/CRM (if available) • Mean of often repeated measurements of the control sample (in most cases) 33September 29, 2015 Andhra university

This usually means that results from analysing standards fall within + 2 standard deviations of the accepted value (within the blue lines on the chart). Any results appearing outside the red lines (+ 3 standard deviations) indicate that the method is not longer in control and requires investigation. 36September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  37. 37. 37September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  38. 38. Action Limits: • There is a probability of only (100-99.7) 0.3 % that a (correct) measurement is outside the action limits (3 out of 1000 measurements) • Therefore the process should be stopped immediately and searched for errors Warning Limits: • (100-95.5) 4.5% of the (correct) values are outside the warning limits. • This is not very unlikely. • Therefore this is only for warning, no immediate action required 38September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  39. 39. What is a Youden Plot? 39September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  40. 40. 40September 29, 2015 Andhra university
  41. 41. • In the late 1950's, Dr. William Youden (1900-1971) developed what has now become known as the Youden Plots. • This statistical technique involves both normal and abnormal controls and graphically helps to differentiate between systematic and random errors. • The inner square of the plot (yellow) represents one standard deviation (1SD). The next larger square (green) represents 2SD, and the outer square (blue) represents 3SD. • A horizontal median line is drawn parallel to the X-axis and a second median line is drawn parallel to the Y-axis. • The intersection of the two median lines is called the Manhattan Median. One or two 45-degree lines are drawn through the Manhattan Median. • The results of at least two different levels of controls (e.g. Level 1/Level 2 or Normal/Abnormal) are then plotted on the chart as X-axis versus Y-axis. 41September 29, 2015 Andhra university
