Extractables & Leachables
Our goal is to support manufacturers
Our goal is to support manufacturers of pharmaceutics and medical devices to select the best primary packaging material for their products.
Primary packaging materials for products such as injectables, inhalers, and generally liquid and topical preparations are made of different materials. Extractables and Leachables (E&L) studies allow to analyse the impact of primary packaging material on the product and determine criteria for a selection and processing, which ultimately serve one purpose: to provide maximum patient protection.
Unfortunately, binding regulatory requirements on how to perform E&L studies are still missing and affected producers are often uncertain about the necessary efforts, costs and testing procedures.
In the field of E&L we have the experience, the know-how and the necessary equipment to offer you a comprehensive guidance when selecting the primary package material or planning E&L offer studies.
