What’s Going on at AAPS – Students Participate in HPLC Lab

Last week, a group of AAPS students performed an identification (ID) test on Acetaminophen drug substance with High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). Acetaminophen – brand name Tylenol is over the counter drug that could treat headaches, muscle aches, arthritis and reduce fever. This experiment in our Quality Control (QC) laboratory provided students with hands-on experience preparing in standards, samples and mobile phase. Furthermore, students learned how to set-up the HPLC and how to operate the HPLC software, Empower/Millennium. HPLC labs, such as this one, are particularly valuable to students because they prepare them with the necessary technical skills needed for.. READ MORE »

Upcoming Certificate Course: HPLC School

  High Performance Liquid Chromatography, or HPLC, is a technique for separating organic and inorganic compounds in order to analyze them.

Students Participate in Exciting Lab – Take a Look!

  Who doesn’t love Aspirin? It’s a common drug can treat pain, fevers and inflammation. In low doses, it can even prevent heart attacks, strokes and blood clotting. As a result, it is no surprise that many major pharmaceutical companies offer their own version of the drug. Last week at AAPS, instructor Jason Chu led a lab session where students were taught how to conduct various laboratory tests on Aspirin in an effort to evaluate various properties such as; product purity, identity, safety and quality. These pharmaceutical tests are useful because they provide students with technical skills that are required.. READ MORE »

This week students at AAPS begin a new academic term. AAPS is excited to share what our students will be learning in upcoming weeks. The term marks the beginning for AAPS’ Introduction to Good Manufacturing Practices course where students will learn the history, rational and purpose behind GMP requirements. Students will be taught the importance of packaging, labeling, testing and control of pharmaceutical products. In our Laboratory series, students enrolled in AAPS Pharmaceutical Laboratory Testing course will be taught practical application of pharmaceutical analysis and techniques as well as Good Laboratory Practices (GLP). This particular course thoroughly prepares students for a pharmaceutical.. READ MORE »

The Process of Bringing Drugs to the Market

Pharmaceutical drugs are chemical substances formulated to cure, treat or prevent an illness. They can be classified as oral contraceptives, painkillers, antimalarial, antibiotics, stimulants and antiseptics to name a few, and can be administered in various forms including vaccination, tablet, topical cream or capsule. Drugs are crucial to preventing sicknesses from spreading, and also help us live daily life with less interference from pain and sickness. While it may seem like new drugs are appearing on the market every day, you can be assured that all drugs must undergo a standard procedure of research, trials and FDA approval before they..
