Clinical to Commercial Manufacturing: Selecting the Right CDMO for Your Sterile Drug Product

Clinical to Commercial Manufacturing: Selecting the Right CDMO for Your Sterile Drug Product

08.04.21

Wednesday, August 4, 2021 | 11:00 AM ET

Taking a drug product from clinical to commercial-scale production is a complex process with numerous variables to consider. Finding an appropriately-sized CDMO to help you go to market can be difficult, especially when manufacturing capacity shortages are common and many CMOs focus on more established or high-volume products. Companies who are developing sterile products, such as injectable or ophthalmic dosage forms, must also ensure manufacturing sites are prepared for the challenges of aseptic manufacturing.
 
To find the right partner, you must know what to look for in a CDMO. In this webinar from Lubrizol Life Science Health (LLS Health), we will describe how LLS Health’s CDMO Division is meeting the need for commercial aseptic manufacturing capacity through our recent site expansion and explore key considerations when selecting a CDMO for commercial supply, including:

  • The importance of flexibility and transparency
  • Selecting the “right-sized” CDMO
  • Strategies for reducing risk
  • Best practices for project management
  • Streamlining projects with a full-service CDMO

Lessons Learned: Choosing and Managing a CDMO

Lessons Learned: Choosing and Managing a CDMO

05.25.21

WATCH NOW ON-DEMAND

Avéma Pharma Solutions, a division of PL Developments (PLD), is in the unique position being both a consumer and supplier of global CDMO services for both OTC and rX products. In this webinar, we’ll explore the lessons we have learned from managing our own CMOs that have allowed us to build a better CDMO model for our Avéma customers. We’ll address the areas that can help speed up your time-to-market, keep development costs under control, and smooth the FDA approval and commercial launch process.

Over the years, PLD has used CMOs to augment our own in-house manufacturing to help support our Private Label business. But, after adding a book of products and business from our acquisition of TEVA’s store brands business in 2019 we were suddenly managing the more than thirty CMOs that supported TEVA’s needs. That process, plus our experience on-boarding new customers at Avéma, has given us empathy about the challenges and insights into what makes a good partnership. The webinar will cover what to look for in a CDMO, and how putting the right parameters in place at the beginning of a client-CDMO relationship, reduces risk and improves communications.

Some of the “pain points” addressed during the webinar, include:

  • Preventing miscommunications and errors through a detailed RFQ process
  • Reducing scale up errors by using small scale manufacturing instead of “bench top” equipment.
  • Reducing cost and time by not having to rely on commercial size equipment “scaled down” to run pilot trials.
  • Reducing lead time by doing most analytical and tech transfer with “in house” resources
  • Keeping component costs down by drawing on the buying power and resources of a CDMO with an extensive network.
  • Streamlining FDA approvals through QbD implementation.

Application of ICP-OES/ICP-MS in Pharmaceutical Analysis

Application of ICP-OES/ICP-MS in Pharmaceutical Analysis

04.08.21

WATCH NOW ON DEMAND

Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) are widely applied in pharmaceutical analysis, including drug product analysis and medical device analysis. ICP-MS is commonly used for elemental impurities analysis and extractable/ leachable studies due to its high sensitivity. The evaluation of individual elements is based on USP 232 and ICH Q3D guidelines. Additional elements that are not included in the risk assessment per ICH Q3D can also be quantified. ICP-OES has been found to be a powerful tool in reverse engineering of a Reference Listed Drug (RLD). For those active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) containing metal elements, such as iron, zinc, arsenic, sodium, platinum, ICP-OES can be used to accurately quantitate these elements in the APIs and finished drug products.

 

  • Introduction on ICP-OES and ICP-MS, their sameness and difference
  • General Application of ICP-MS
  • General Application of ICP-OES
  • Sample Preparation for ICP analysis: Microwave digestion system, CEM MARS 6

Why Increasing Solubility May Not Improve Bioavailability - In Vitro Predictions

Why Increasing Solubility May Not Improve Bioavailability - In Vitro Predictions

03.30.21

WATCH NOW ON-DEMAND

 

The classical approach to bioavailability enhancement of poorly water soluble drugs is through the use of solubility enhancers such as co-solvents, surfactants, and emulsifying agents. But depending on the rate limiting factors for drug absorption, simply increasing the API solubility may not have a significant impact on the bioavailability. There is an interplay between solubility and permeability that can be evaluated using In vitro flux/permeability testing. This can provide valuable insight into the potential factors limiting bioavailability, and should be characterized before choosing a bioavailability enhancing formulation approach. This approach can also be used to compare release and absorption of candidate formulations. 

 

In this webinar we will discuss the use of in vitro flux and permeability as a tool in formulation development to:

 

  • Evaluate/characterize the rate limiting factor(s) for passive diffusion of an API.
  • Screen potential bioavailability enhancers for improvements to flux and permeability.
  • Compare candidate formulations for potential bioavailability enhancement.
