Especially in laboratories in a regulated environment, tests according to the provisions for the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph.Eur.) are inconceivable. The tests regulated in the Ph.Eur. often need to be performed in a multi-step process and cannot easily be expressed in merely one result.
Frequent tests are required for e.g. the representation of the dissolution (with and without Q), content uniformity (Ph.Eur. 2.9.6), mass variation (Ph.Eur. 2.9.40), impurity or contamination or linear regression. In general, the results must be represented in a table with lines and columns.
