Validation of laboratory analysis methods according to the ICH Q2 standard

Your needs: analyse the composition of your products using a validated analysis method based on the international ICH Q2 standard

Why validate an analysis method according to the ICH Q2 standard?

The ICH Q2 international guideline concerns the procedures to be followed for the validation of methods of analysis. It has been developed by an ICH Expert Group and has been subject to consultation by regulatory bodies in accordance with the ICH process.

The revision of ICH Q2 (R1) includes principles for the validation of methods of analysis covering the analytical use of spectroscopic or spectrometric data (e.g. analytical techniques such as FTIR, Raman, NMR or MS), some of which often require multivariate statistical analysis.

Our solutions: provide you with our expertise in validating analytical methods in accordance with the ICH Q2 guideline.

For more than 30 years, our FILAB laboratory has had the experience and specific analytical equipment to support companies in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors in validating analytical methods in accordance with ICH Q2, in particular for the following parameters:

Whatever the analytical method, here are the main criteria to consider when validating an analytical method:

  • specificity (or selectivity)
  • precision: repeatability, intermediate precision, reproducibility
  • accuracy
  • linearity
  • sensitivity (Limit of Detection (LoD) and Limit of Quantification (LoQ))
  • stability
  • robustness
  • measurement uncertainty

From the development of the analytical method to routine analysis, the FILAB laboratory offers a complete range of analytical services in compliance with the ICH Q2 guideline:
