Stability Study Design – Bracketing and Matrixing

Stability programmes are a costly undertaking, especially for products that have multiple strengths and packaging configurations, where a full study design will require every configuration to be evaluated for three registration batches at each time point.

The use of reduced study designs such as bracketing and matrixing can reduce the cost of formal stability studies. This webinar describes when the use of such approaches is allowable, together with their associated benefits and risks.

To outline the benefits and risks of this approach we hosted a free webinar with guest speaker Mark Powell from Mark Powell Scientific Limited on ‘Stability Study Design – Bracketing and Matrixing’.

This webinar took place on Wednesday 12 August 2020. To view the full webinar recording, please visit our webinar recording page.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Bracketing and Matrixing Designs (ICH Q1D)
  • Bracketing study designs
  • Bracketing study risks
  • Matrix study designs
  • Matrix study risks
  • Combined bracketing and matrix study designs
  • The risks and benefits
