[en] The aim of the present study was to develop near infrared (NIR) and X-ray powder diffraction methods (XRPD) able to determine pure crystalline form II of fluconazole in a binary polymorphic mixtures containing form II and III. In order to give a first performance estimation of both methods, these latters were pre-validated using accuracy profiles, a statistical approach based on β-expectation tolerance intervals. Both methods showed a good trueness, precision and accuracy and their β-expectation tolerance intervals were fully included within the acceptance limits.
The comparative study was carried out using statistical analysis based on the work of Bland and Altman. A good agreement between the two methods was demonstrated indicating the interchangeability of NIR method with XRPD method.
