Sealing Technology for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Manufacture

New developments in perfluoroelastomers are setting the standard for sealing in the manufacture and storage of active pharmaceutical ingredients. This article reviews the growing popularity of these elastomers and their application in total containment systems.

Primary pharmaceutical manufacturers are faced with a problem - how to handle active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and intermediates without risk to the health of their workers arising from processing leaks or breaches in containment during manufacture? Moreover, to meet good manufacturing practice (GMP) regulations for API manufacture, manufacturing operations should not compromise API integrity through poor hygiene standards and cross contamination. To overcome these issues seals are used in pumps, valves and pipe work on the plant and in intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) used for the transportation of raw materials and intermediates.

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.
