Product Recommendations – Selecting the Right Pharmaceutical Packaging Components

Ensuring the safe containment of sensitive drug formulations requires a thorough evaluation of the container closure system. Selecting the packaging components requires knowledge about not only the drug formulation's requirements, but also the components’ material properties. Chemical compatibility of components with the drug formulation is key. Proper selection of components will provide the right closure design, assist with handling and help ensure container closure integrity throughout a drug product’s shelf life. Managing these factors well is critical, and West can help.
