M.Pharmacy-Pharmaceutical Analysis
Academics - 15 Seats

Pharmaceutical analysis is a core department which is responsible for imparting knowledge in the field of modern instrumental techniques for B.Pharm, Pharm. D and all branches of M.Pharm in the Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis and Quality Assurance at Vaageswari College of Pharmacy. It involves basic research in identity, purity, content and stability of starting materials, excipients and Active pharmaceutical ingredients (API). Impurities usually stem from the synthesis of the active ingredients; they are usually monitored according to the ICH guidelines and the pharmacopoeia standards. The department is actively involved in the Analytical method development and their Validation of Synthetic and Natural drugs, Pharmacokinetic studies, TDM studies, Stability studies, Elucidation of newly synthesized drugs by using conventional instruments like Spectrophotometer, Flame Photometer,Turbidimetry & Nephelometry, Electrophoresis, Fluorometry, Conductivity meter, KF titration and pH meter. Several advanced instruments like FT-IR Spectroscopy, UV-Visible and HPLC. The Department of Pharmaceutical analysis has the modern equipments with good infrastructure facilities.
