Packaging analysis laboratory for the pharmaceutical industry

Your needs: to ensure the conformity of your packaging and drug administration devices

There are 2 types of packaging for pharmaceutical products:

  • Primary packaging that is in direct contact with the drug
  • Secondary packaging that covers the primary packaging
  • Administration devices such as pre-filled syringes, infusions, intranasal injection devices, inhalers, dosing devices,…

Drug packaging protects and preserves the drugs they contain, ensuring proper storage without risk to the health of patients. The administration device allows the product to be administered or injected into the patient’s body. 

Packaging and administration devices can be made from several types of materials: cardboard, plastic, glass, silicone, etc.

Why analyze them?

To allow the marketing of a drug, primary packaging and administration devices, i.e. all elements in direct contact with the drug, are subject to strict regulations. Indeed, the administration devices and primary packaging must not interact with and degrade the drug.

The support of an analytical laboratory such as FILAB enables viable results to be provided to assess the compliance and performance of packaging and administration devices, in accordance with defined specifications and regulatory standards.

Le support d’un laboratoire d’analyse comme FILAB permet d’apporter des résultats viables permettant d’évaluer la conformité et les performances des emballages/packaging et dispositifs d’administrations, selon un cahier des charges défini et des normes règlementaires.
