Evaluating changes in packaging sterilization methods with extractables assessments

This technical poster produced by Smithers extractables and leachables experts shows the effects of different sterilization methods on a selection of polymer packaging materials and is now available to download.

In recent years, the pharmaceutical industry has developed a better understanding of the impact of extractables and leachables on patient safety and drug product interaction, leading to increased scrutiny by the regulators. When there is a change in a drug product’s immediate packaging materials, there is a regulatory requirement to assess the impact of the change.

This poster shows examples of extractables assessments performed to assess changes in
packaging sterilization methods.
