Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Packing Sourcer

Working Together

If the pharmaceutical supply chain was a living, breathing creature, it would probably be the microscopic water flea. Daphnia pulex was the first crustacean to have its genome sequenced, and results showed that it has 31,000 genes – 25% more than us humans. Just like the genetic complexity of the water flea was a challenge for scientists, the sophisticated pharma supply chain is now changing the way the industry operates.

The rise of emerging markets and the different geographic standards used around the world are additional challenges that manufacturers need to address. As always in the pharma sector, the complex regulatory landscape has a significant impact on companies. This includes widely recognised guidelines such as those from the FDA and their European counterparts, as well as client standards and environmental legislation. All of these factors are contributing to making the supply chain nearly impossible to navigate.

Current Situation

As new markets and technologies emerge in the pharma field, manufacturers are starting to feel the pressure of working with a higher number of suppliers, partners and distributors. They often produce drugs for pharmacies or specific patients, rather than wholesale – this means that the industry is starting to be driven by demand rather than forecast. The medicines themselves are becoming progressively complex and bespoke, meaning that the production of mini batches or personalised medicine is another rising trend.

Key to Outsourcing Method Development and Validation: A Pragmatic Approach

RSSL

In an industry that is seeing an increasing level of work being outsourced, the Contract Research Organisation (CRO) of choice needs to have proven experience in both the pragmatism and flexibility of the method developer’s mind set and a regulatory background in validation. As companies are focussing on achieving ever shorter times of drug to market, it is vital that a tailored, pragmatic approach is adopted when engaging in both method development and validation activities for an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) or drug product (DP). Although methods still require a high degree of robustness, the overall strategy should encompass a full evaluation of the regulatory requirements applicable to the particular phase of the drug life-cycle; this is pivotal in Key to Outsourcing Method Development and Validation A Pragmatic Approach order to ensure a successful regulatory submission, where the applicant must demonstrate suitable validation of all methods used to support the filing.
