Drug impurity profiling, i.e. identification, structure elucidation and quantitative determination of impurities and degradation products in bulk drugs materials and pharmaceutical formulations is one of the most important fields of research activities. Development of stability indicating quantitative test methods, which can detect type and amount of degradation products over time. The use of such methods is to support a regulatory submission such as an Investigational New Drug Application, Drug Master File or an (A) NDA or generated to satisfy cGMP requirements. Bioanalysis: quantitative determination of drugs and their metabolites in biological fluids and the evaluation and interpretation of bioequivalence, pharmacokinetic studies. Metabolite identification and characterization studies by use of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) etc. Standardization of herbal drugs: to obtain reliable chromatographic fingerprints that represent pharmacologically active and chemically characteristic components.
