Emprove® Extractables Data for Filters and Single-use Systems

Enabling a More Robust Extractables and Leachables Risk Assessment

 

Enabling a More Robust Extractables and Leachables Risk Assessment

extractables and potential leachables

All polymeric components such as the filters and single-use systems used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing must be assessed for safety through an evaluation of extractables and potential leachables.

Extractables are compounds that can be extracted from these materials while leachables are compounds that leach from the materials into the process stream. An understanding of extractables is essential as it can help identify the leachables that may enter a process stream.

Fast-track your Extractables Risk Assessment

With our Emprove® Program, developing an extractables profile for filters and single-use systems used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing no longer requires a time- and resource-intensive compilation of a vast amount of data.

Our Emprove® Operational Excellence Dossiers will enable you to fast-track extractables risk assessment by providing reliable extractables data, based on industry standards and guidelines established by the BioPhorum Operations Group's (BPOG) standardized testing protocol and USP <665> draft chapters. Our focus has been on consistency in quality, test methodology and reporting across the portfolio of products in scope.

The datasets generated facilitate your safety risk assessment by accelerating your ability to identify potential leachables and patient exposure which can be calculated based on process conditions, total surface area in contact with the product, batch size and final drug product maximum daily dose.

Pre-treatment …‘should be pre-treated the same way before … extractables testing…‘ “…tested when they have been conditioned or processed in a manner consistent with their intended use and as specified in the manufacturer's instructions for use.”
  • Separate tests and reports for gamma irradiation or autoclave pre-treatment
  • No pre-flush unless required (worst case)

A full spectrum of services that caters to your specific needs for Extractables and Leachables risk assessment

A thorough interpretation of the extractables datasets from the operational excellence dossiers to your specific product and process can further be supported through consultation and services from Bioreliance® Validation Services.
Together with our BioReliance® Validation Services Experts, we provide a higher level of confidence in safety risk assessment through careful selection of well-characterized materials, experience in identifying and analyzing potential leachables (or process-specific extractables) data and expertise in the design and execution of need-based leachables studies. Because every product and process are unique, we tailor our approach to deliver best-in-class services and robust results that meet global industry standards, even as the standards continue to evolve:
