The Impact of Components on Drug Quality and Risk Mitigation

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

Expectations for quality by regulatory agencies are increasing at a very fast pace, especially for prefilled drug delivery formats, thanks to increased focus on reducing risk to patient safety. The trend has resulted in delays for new drug applications, more recalls of marketed products and even drug shortages if the container system and drug contents are suspect for quality issues. The pharmaceutical market is now requiring manufacturers of containers and components to meet new expectations with a quality culture and very high product reliability. The need to bridge the gap and provide superior quality products has been a driver for manufacturing technology investments, more robust control strategies and the introduction of next generation elastomer components.
