Contamination in pharmaceutical manufacturing poses significant health risks, yet it is not fully addressed in existing compendia. This book provides for the first time a one-stop reference on the subject. It surveys the sources of contamination, explaining how to identify contaminants and impurities in pharmaceutical products, methods to avoid and remove contaminants, and regulatory guidelines to determine contamination. An absolute must for pharmaceutical and biotechnology researchers working in the area of quality control, as well as quality managers, regulators, chemists, and toxicologists in the field.
