Advantages of prefilled diluent syringes:
- Less components and fewer steps in the administration process
- Precision, single-unit dosing reduces waste of valuable API
- Less risk of dosing error and improved patient safety
- Increased user convenience and compliance
- Product differentiation from market competition
Prefilled syringes or dual-chamber diluent options can also assist in product differentiation when a drug maker is looking to expand the market for their product.
Customer specific development or established diluent program
Regardless of the choice of diluent or diluent delivery option chosen, whether to proceed with a customer specific diluent program or an established program will depend on important aspects that are critical for success like e.g. how to reduce the risk of interactions by minimizing the packaging material variation coming in contact with the diluent or a special treatment of the glass barrel. Other important aspects include packaging material preferences and the choice of an appropriate closure part to enable effective product integrity.
An established diluent program can offer significant advantages:
- Faster time-to-market: Stability data and registration documents are readily available to streamline registration
- Reduced development costs: Processes are validated, lower investment costs and planning preparations
- One-stop-shop offer: Multiple standard and customized packaging options for clinical and commercial filling
- Distinctive quality: Process technology and premium packaging enable high-quality aseptic products
Whereas customized development programs also have distinct benefits:
- Flexibility in the selection of primary packaging material. Such as glass/polymer barrels, closure parts and stoppers, multiple types of tamper evident seals to protect product integrity
- Availability of a broad range of filling formats. Practically unlimited selection of filling volumes
- Various diluent options. Flexibility in type of the diluent such as sWFI, Sodium Chloride, NaCl etc… as well as diluent concentration
