The Practical Applications of NMR in Industry Conference (PANIC) was founded to address the growing need for discussions of latest NMR developments for practical applications to real problems faced in industry and research institutions (  During the 2015 conference a workshop was held focused on NMR instrument and method validation.  This poster reviews the workshop goals and plans forward that are of interest to the natural product herbal supplement community.  The resource information resulting from this workshop will ultimately be available at

“Validation of NMR: No Need to PANIC”

“NMR has seen a significant surge in the use for the GxP environment or for accredited laboratories as an analytical tool for many functions that have traditionally utilized other analytical tools, such as HPLC and IR spectroscopy.  However, there is often much consternation concerning the validation of the instruments themselves and the NMR related analytical methodology…..The workshop was facilitated from a panel of experts ranging from representatives in industry, regulatory, academics and NMR manufacturers.  This allowed many aspects of issues to be discussed with the relevant experts to add their perspective.  We look forward to this on-going collaborative experience and to ensure progression of NMR into this regulated environment with greater ease.”
