A Cold Case

Patient safety will always be the top priority of every clinical trial. Therefore, it is vital that the investigational medicine dispensed to the patient is pure, safe, and effective no matter what challenges are presented by packaging, storage, and distribution requirements.

Many medicines have a stringent stability profile, where the acceptable temperature range in which the drug must be stored and distributed is strictly dictated to ensure the product remains safe and effective. This is becoming the norm rather than the exception, with large molecules and biologic medicines now playing a more prominent role in clinical development. Therefore, ensuring the biologics are optimally safe and effective is often an issue of sustaining the product at very specific temperatures and maintaining these requisites despite what can be differing, and even extreme, environmental conditions.

To control the temperature conditions of the drug at every step in the supply chain, it is critical that trial sponsors consider a range of factors. From the point in time that the drug is first manufactured through to the end delivery to the patient, it will be exposed to a multitude of environments during its lifecycle. Stages of this will include initial packaging, storage at the distribution facility, clinical site transportation and storage, and distribution to the patient.

Quality of Steel

Natoli Engineering Company, Inc.

Steel quality is the summation of how well a steel meets its specified chemistry, the cleanliness of the steel or degree to which it is free of impurities or inclusion, homogeneity of the microstructure, grain/carbide size and in some instances if it meets the mechanical requirements for that particular steel. In the design and manufacture of tablet compression tooling, nothing is more important than the quality of the materials being used. The best manufacturing principals maintaining the tightest tolerances will result in tool failure if the initial material quality is poor. Material quality is the fundamental building block upon which all successive value added steps are laid. The majority of all tablet compression tooling is produced from steel and steel quality is the subject of this article.
