The objective of this lab is to provide practical exposure to the pharmacy students on various physical and chemical quality control tests. The students will learn about different testing procedures and limits applied on pharmaceutical products for their quality determination.


CLO: 1. To explain principles, theory and experiments used in pharmaceutical quality evaluation
CLO: 2. To perform quality control tests and assays on different pharmaceutical dosage forms
CLO: 3. To analyze given data and problems using basic principles of pharmaceutical quality management
