Solvents are often necessary for the manufacture of drug products, as they can improve yield and solubility and enhance crystallization. However, depending on their toxicity and concentration, they can be harmful to the patient. Determination of residual solvents is critical to ensure that pharmaceutical raw materials and finished products are safe.

Element conducts residual solvent testing in compliance with USP <467> and ICH Q3C. Many residual solvents can be determined by USP <467> and ICH Q3C, while some require methods to be developed specifically and validated.
