  1. Quality by Design (QbD) In Pharmaceutical Development
    6/20/2017

    Quality by Design (QbD) is a systematic approach to product development that begins with predefined objectives and emphasizes product and process understanding and controls based on sound science and quality risk management (ICH Q8). The emphasis of QbD began with the recognition that increased testing does not essentially improve product quality; however, quality must be built into the product.
