        In 2008, the FDA issued a new guidance for process validation.                    Alfred V. Del Grosso, Ph.D., Team Leader — Analytical Chemistry,

        before the FDA started to advocate process validation, the original,              (via teleconference)
        1987, FDA guidance on process validation had an impact on
        test method validation. That impact continues as the industry             10:15   Networking and Refreshment Break
