Auditing Laboratory Data Systems

Ensuring Integrity and Security of Laboratory Data for FDA / EU Compliance

Speaker: Dr. Mark Powell
Duration: 60 Minutes
Speaker: Dr. Ludwig Huber
Duration: 75 Minutes


  • Categories of laboratory data system (GAMP)
  • Lifecycle management, archiving and backup
  • What counts as raw data?
  • Protecting the integrity of analytical data
  • General guidance on assigning user privileges
  • Operating system configuration.
  • Application configuration
  • Controls appropriate for chromatography data systems
  • Practices that aid compliance with data integrity requirements
  • Examples from recent FDA warning letters


  • Eight key FDA/EU requirements for integrity and security of laboratory data.
  • How FDA inspectors check integrity and security of data.
  • Most frequent security and integrity issues: going through recent 483’s, EIRs and warning letters?
  • The importance of limited access to ‘individual users’ rather than to groups.
  • FDA compliant definition, acquisition, maintenance and archiving of raw data.
  • Critical integrity and security issues during the entire life of laboratory data: from  data acquisition through evaluation to archiving.
  • Examples how to ensure and document data integrity.
  • Documenting changes of laboratory data: paper, hybrid systems, electronic.
  • The importance of electronic audit trail to document data integrity.
  • Review of electronic audit trail: who, what, when and how.
  • Ensuring timely availability through validated back-up and archiving.
  • Going through representative 10 case studies: FDA observations, complete responses to each observation, corrective actions and preventive actions.

Establishing a Product Stability Testing Program

Speaker: Dr. David Lim
Duration: 60 Minutes

Agenda Part 1:

  • Introduction of a Stability Testing Plan and Program
    • Applicable Regulation and Requirements
  • General Stability Considerations Applicable to a New Product (i.e. Potency)
  • Storage Conditions
    • Shelf Life Duration of Studies and Expiration Dates
    • Container Closure Requirements
  • Sample Size
    • Sampling Plan
    • Handling and Analysis of Samples
  • Stability Schedule (Suggested Schedules for Conducting Stability Studies)
    • Pre-approval and Post Approval Studies
    • Stability Tests
    • Reformulated Products
    • Accelerated Temperature Studies
    • Test Schedule Information
      • Suggested Time Points and Expiration Dates Based on Testing Time Points
      • Solid Dosage Forms Suggested Test Schedule
      • Liquid and Semi-solid Types Products Suggested Test Schedule
      • Reconstituted Products Suggested Test Schedule
    • Temperatures of Studies Based on the Product Type
      • Room Temperature Studies
      • Elevated Temperature
      • Refrigeration
      • Freezing Temperature
      • Special Humidity Considerations

Agenda Part 2:

  • Analytical Testing Considerations
    • Quality Control Release Assays and Methods
    • Criticality of the Choice of Test that are Stability Indicators
      • Choice of Methods with Meaningful Data or Stability Indicator
    • Method Attributes
  • Stability Testing Protocol Design
    • How to Design a Protocol and a Report
  • Stability Testing Data Management and Trending
    • Trending Data
    • Expiration Dating Extrapolation Using Data
  • Manual versus Automated Data Management
  • Advantages and Disadvantages

You will also get answers to the following tough questions:

  • For a medical device that has storage label of 15-30°C; Are stability studies at 15°C and 30°C or 25°C study sufficient?
  • For a reconstitution study; product has an assigned expiration of 24 months; do I need to do reconstitution at 12 months (6, hours, 12 hours and 24 hours) and at 24 months (6, hours, 12 hours and 24 hours)?
  • What is the accelerated storage for a product with real time storage of -20°C±5C?
  • Is it an industry’s practice to do study one year past expiration?
  • If the regression predicts failure before product expiration, what is the next step to do in stability?
