ICH Q3D analysis in the medical industry

Medical industry, you want to perform an analysis according to ICH Q3D

What is ICH Q3D?

Firstly, the ICH (International Conference on Harmonisation) Q3D guideline indicates the methodology for the assessment of elemental impurities in pharmaceutical products.

The ICH Q3D stipulates 4 classes of elemental impurities, including heavy metals, according to their toxicological impact and their potential presence in the pharmaceutical product.

Class 1: As, Pb, Cd, Hg
Class 2a: V, Ni, Co
Class 2b: Ag, Au, Tl, Pd, Pt, Ir, Os, Rh, Ru, Se
Class 3: Sb, Ba, Li, Cr, Cu, Sn, Mo

Why perform an ICH Q3D analysis?

Heavy metals are particularly hazardous to health and are strictly regulated.

Therefore, the analysis of elemental impurities according to ICH Q3D allows to verify the non-toxicity of your products. Therefore, the analysis of elemental impurities according to ICH Q3D by a competent laboratory is indispensable for the marketing of your products from the medical industry.
