The Importance of Possessing Good Polymer Chemistry Knowledge in Conducting Extractables/Leachables Studies
April 07, 2014
Extractables and Leachables studies are an important part of the development cycle of any new drug product. It is important that an appropriate packaging system is chosen such that the product is stable and protected from degradation. It is equally important that this packaging system does not affect the purity of the product by leaching chemicals into the product. Rigorous extractables and leachables testing can ensure the proper packaging system is chosen, and an integral part of this testing regiment includes an extensive knowledge polymer chemistry.
