The ability to provide timely, accurate, and reliable data is central to the discovery, development, and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals. Analytical data are used to screen potential vaccine candidates, aid in the development of vaccine synthesis, support formulation studies, monitor the stability of bulk biopharmaceuticals and formulated products, and test final products for release. The quality of analytical data is a key factor in the success of a vaccine development program.
Problems increase as additional people, laboratories and equipments are used to perform the method. When the method is used in the developer's laboratory, a small optimization can usually be made to make the method work, but the flexibility to change it is lost, once the method is transferred to other laboratories or used for official product testing, where methods are submitted to regulatory agencies and changes may require formal approval before they can be implemented for official testing. The best way to minimize method problems is to perform adequate validation experiments during development.
The need of the sophisticated analytical instruments and determination using them is almost a routine process for the modern analytical laboratories. It has been vast expanding areas of knowledge as the instrument automation is in ever-increase in power and scope. Further all the manual techniques in the line of analytical studies had steadily been transferred to the instrumental techniques. Analytical methods are generally classified as Physical and Chemical analysis. Physical analysis includes measurement of particle size, dimension, thickens of a solid dosage forms etc. Basically chemical analysis can be divided into three broad categories.
[...] Although HPLC is widely considered to be a technique mainly for biotechnological, biomedical, and biochemical research as well as for the pharmaceutical industry, these fields currently comprise only about 50% of HPLC users. Currently HPLC is used by a variety of fields including cosmetics, energy, food, and environmental industries. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) HPLC originally referred to the fact that high pressure was needed to generate the flow required for liquid chromatography in packed columns. In the beginning, instrument components only had the capability of generating pressures of 500psi (35 bar). [...]

[...] Analytical chemistry deals with methods for determining the chemical composition of samples. A compound can be often measured by several methods. The choice of analytical methodology is based on many considerations, such as chemical properties of the analyte and its concentration, sample matrix, the speed and cost of the analysis, type of measurements i.e, quantitative or qualitative and the number of samples. A qualitative method provides numerical information regarding the relative amounts of one or more of the species ( the analytes) in the sample. [...]
