Review of Patient Pack Assembly

Producers of clinical supplies assemble patient packs by performing activities according to packaging instructions. Once an automated recipe management system is in place, where packaging instructions can be specified and execution can be electronically verified, providers of clinical supplies in the form of patient packs can concentrate on refining their processes. For packaging operations in some companies, it is required that each component be individually tracked and associated with a particular patient pack as early in the process as possible. Other organisations require that the source of each component is known, the contents of each patient pack be specified and traceable, but not that each component be known early in the process. This article is an evaluation of the implications of these two general approaches from several standpoints:

Work to properly account for each component as it goes into a patient pack
Ability to respond to requests for detailed information when an unblinding is required
Ability to handle assembly when product inventories are less than enough for a full packaging run

Syringe siliconization

Gerresheimer AG

Ready-to-fill, i.e. sterile, prefillable glass syringes, are washed, siliconized, sterilized and packaged by the primary packaging manufacturer. They can then be filled by the pharmaceutical companies without any further processing. These days the majority of prefillable syringes are made of glass and the trend looks set to continue. The siliconization of the syringe barrel is an extremely important aspect of the production of sterile, prefillable glass syringes because the functional interaction of the glass barrel siliconization and the plunger stopper siliconization is crucial to the efficiency of the entire system. Both inadequate and excessive siliconization can cause problems in this connection. The use of modern technology can achieve an extremely uniform distribution of silicone oil in glass syringes with reduced quantities of silicone oil. Another option for minimizing the amount of free silicone oil in a syringe is the thermal fixation of the silicone oil on the glass surface in a process called baked-on siliconization. Plastic-based silicone oil-free or low-silicone oil prefillable syringe systems are a relatively new development. Silicone oil-free lubricant coatings for syringes are also currently in the development phase.
