Performing analytical characterization of medical and combination devices ensures product quality and regulatory compliance.
As medical and combination product prototypes are developed, analytical methods are required to provide loading with the necessary amount of drug. The drug must have the desired stability and release kinetics to allow for appropriate delivery and clinical evaluation.
Analytical characterization may include drug assays, degradation product identification and identification/quantification of extractables and leachables for product approval. Additionally, optimizing drug elution rates from combination devices improves device efficacy and safety.
