Product life cycle management

Product life cycle management

For pharmaceutical companies in today’s highly competitive environment, getting a drug product to market is only step one. Maintaining success and profitability for as long as possible is the challenge for the remainder of the drug’s life. Vetter can help with several product life cycle options:

Primary packaging change

An upgrade in primary packaging can increase your drug product’s appeal to clinicians and patients - and can set it apart from the competition. Examples include transfers

  • From liquid vial to prefilled syringe
  • From liquid vial to cartridge and pen assembly
  • From vial to dual-chamber syringe or cartridge

Syringe with V-OVS® tamper-evident closure

Dual-chamber cartridge in pen – Example LyoTwistTM Trio, Ypsomed

Vetter Lyo-Ject® dual-chamber syringe

Secondary packaging change

Taking another look at secondary packaging is another way to extend your product’s life cycle. Secondary packaging changes can help you address user, efficiency, and even regulatory challenges. Examples include:

  • Change from a top-loaded carton to a blister pack for particle reduction
  • Alteration of a finger flange or plunger rod
  • Addition of a safety device
  • Incorporation of serialization to address regulatory changes

Kit packaging

Safety Device – Example Safety syringe, UltraSafe Passive® Needle Guard

Serialization for specific markets

Vetter’s expertise in a broad range of compounds and delivery systems means we can help you make a smooth transition to an enhanced product.
