The pharmaceutical industry is continuously evolving, with a growing emphasis on delivering potent, complex and personalized small-volume pharmaceuticals to patients around the world.
Demand for highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients (HPAPIs) used in the development of targeted therapies remains high. Furthermore, advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs), encompassing gene therapies, cell-based therapies and tissue-engineered products, are gaining prominence in the industry with the potential to treat previously incurable diseases.
To meet these rising demands, there is an increasing need for flexible and cost-effective manufacturing solutions that not only streamline processes, but also ensure the sterility of drug powder materials across pharmaceutical lines.
However, protecting the sterile integrity and containment of these drug powders poses challenges to manufacturers, necessitating strict adherence to processes and ensuring their cleanrooms have the necessary equipment and capacity for varying batch sizes of drug product transfer.
To address these challenges, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly exploring single-use technologies (SUTs) to achieve greater efficiencies. From containing potent powder during transfer to ensuring its sterility as it progresses along production lines, these components are designed to optimise pharmaceutical processes while maintaining safety and adhering to stringent regulations.
But with so many SUT solutions now available, how do you know you’re choosing the right one for the needs of your line?
This buyer’s guide addresses five critical questions to consider when choosing the right single-use containment equipment for your powder transfer systems.
