Cost reduction initiatives in R&D organizations frequently focus on the potential benefits of process improvements such as enhanced monitoring and improved QC of raw materials but often overlook the impact of better data management. Those that do typically focus on achieving efficiency gains by transitioning from paper to electronic systems but while such a transition has been demonstrated to save time3, efficiency gains are only beneficial if any time saved is used productively.
The Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS), developed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to simplify and accelerate the drug development process. The system has evolved to classify low-soluble drugs according to their permeability (BCS Class II or IV). A compound’s classification (I through IV) is indicative of its potential bioavailability.
WuXi AppTec needed an additional filling solution and contacted Bosch Packaging Services to support with a modification of its existing Bosch FLC 3040 filling machine.
Getting the best results from any cleaner requires proper mixing and cleaning procedures. This article includes mixing directions for aqueous cleaning detergent and methods for monitoring performance.
Cleaning validation or verification is a necessary regulatory compliance step in medical device manufacturing and reprocessing. Support from the cleaner manufacturer can save time and money when establishing either cleaning validation or cleaning verification processes. This white paper outlines the basics of cleaning validation and how the cleaner manufacturer can help simplify and speed up the process, as well as support ongoing maintenance of the validated or verified state.
Cleaning validation is a necessary and time-consuming part of manufacturing pharmaceuticals. The validation process can be expedited and the cost reduced if the cleaner supplier can provide support — ultimately allowing pharmaceuticals to get to market faster and at a lower cost. This paper outlines the basics of cleaning validation and discusses the support services you should seek from your critical cleaning products supplier to optimize your cleaning validation process.
