The section of Drug Quality Control/Pharmaceutical Analytics of the German Pharmaceutical Society (DPhG) exists since 1991. It emanates from the section of the Drug Quality Control of the DDR. It consists of a scientific forum for all pharmacists and scientists who work in teaching, research and development and scientists of other areas who are also involved in the quality assurance of drugs. The section represents the interests of all who are employed at the university, industry and agencies or other facilities of quality assurance of drugs or pharmaceutical analytics which are accountable for the chemical research of active ingredients or preclinical and clinical trials.



The objectives of the section Drug Quality Control/Pharmaceutical Analytics are:

  • Development, propagation and practice of scientific knowledge and methods
    - for quality assurance of active agents and excipients as well as drugs concerning to their chemical,
       physical and biological attributes and their specification during production and storage
    - for evaluation and prevention of quality-caused risks and
    - for analysis of agents and their metabolites in biological materials
  • Opinion making in principle topics to assess the pharmaceutical drug safety
  • Comments on current topics of pharmaceutical drug safety
  • Assistance to the institutions of quality safety of drugs in the industry, pharmacies including hospital pharmacies, agencies and service laboratories to etablish general standards of quality and safety
  • Delivery of research assignments and interdisciplinary cooperations as well as international, in particular European, cooperation at the specialist area
  • Assistance to universitical and other institutions of specific section of further eduction as well as national and regional committees of the German Pharmaceutical Society (DPhG) to arrange their scientific events

Scientific events are arranged for realisation of the mentioned objectives, including a main symposium which takes place annually with comprehensive symposia, seminars or workshops of special themes.
We are arranging events to the following themes:

  • Qualitiy assurance of biotechnological made drugs
  • Peptide analysis
  • Protein analysis
  • Sample preparation
  • Mass Spectrometry
  • Analytical validation
  • Quality assurance of phytogenic drugs
  • Regulatory affairs
  • Pharmacopoeia analysis
  • Analytical topics about Clinical Pharmacy (Co-symposium with the Working Group Clinical Pharmacy)
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Separation techniques: chromatography and electrophoresis
  • Sterility-indicating assays
  • Packaging

Are you interested in one of these topics? We shall be glad to inform you about details! Please contact us if you want us to pick up a current theme in the near future!



With your membership of the section Drug Quality Control / Pharmaceutical analytics you support our business to afford a discussion forum out of current questions of drug control and to comment. If you are member you will get circular letters with current informations about events of the section and of all important themes of the drug control area which the section concerns with (Consensus papers, comments …). Members of the German Pharmaceutical Society (DPhG) get their membership in the section by declaration without extra payment of contributions. Please send your declaration to:
