Helping Pharma to Update their USP Methods

Mar 27 2023

Cooperation with USP has resulted in modernisation of numerous monographs

The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) has modernised a substantial number of existing monographs to include ion chromatography (IC) methods for numerous pharmaceutical assays of APIs as well as analysis of impurities and excipients. Metrohm has cooperated with USP in this project as a partner and several of these monographs have been validated with Metrohm instruments and columns.

USP has embarked on a global initiative to modernise many existing monographs across all compendia.

In this context, numerous titrations, ion measurements, and other wet chemistry methods have been substituted by IC methods validated with instruments and columns from Metrohm. As a result, companies from the pharmaceutical industry can now replace their current methods by more modern IC methods making their daily routine analytics safer and more efficient.

Companies eager to modernise their pharmaceutical analysis are supported by Metrohm in making this change all the way from consultation to implementation and method validation. A list of USP monographs validated with Metrohm IC instruments is available from a dedicated hub on the Metrohm website.
