Pharmaceutical Analysis

Center for Drug Evaluation and Research scientists working in the area of pharmaceutical analysis evaluate the methods used by pharmaceutical companies and by the U.S. Pharmacopeia for their suitability to characterize the quality of drug products and ingredients. They also develop and disseminate new technologies and methods for characterizing the chemical and biological properties of drug ingredients and drug products. These scientists also support the regulatory and enforcement components of the FDA by conducting surveillance and investigational laboratory testing of drug products and ingredients.
