Aptar Pharma Integrated Support Services for Device Development

Development Services

As nasal spray products are drug device combinations, we develop customer products with the device and formulation in mind. We work with customers to help them develop a product formulation for the right nasal device for the intended application and therapeutic area. Aptar Pharma offers its extensive range of nasal drug delivery technologies with custom or modified options. Device options can be for functional formulation delivery reasons or for marketing differentiation.

Our team at Nanopharm, an Aptar Pharma company, can develop custom formulations optimized for use in the selected devices. With unrivalled knowledge of device capabilities, combined with our nasal drug delivery formulation expertise, Aptar Pharma can effectively and efficiently support the development of robust and compliant nasal formulations that meet your drug-device combination product’s requirements. All this support can be provided with data generated from specialized analytical testing, and computational pharmaceutics capabilities of Nanopharm including nasal cavity in-vivo models.

Analytical Services

Nasal drug products can require unique and specialized testing to fully characterize nasal drug delivery products. Aptar Pharma, combined with Nanopharm, offer specialized analytical capabilities to cover the full range of analytical services required. Our Nanopharm team offers formulation development services for nasal spray liquids or powders. They also offer leading edge computational pharmaceutics capabilities to understand critical parameters like regional deposition, permeation rates, absorption kinetics and nasal drug delivery targeting.

With a unique 3D nasal cavity in-vitro modelling system, Aptar Pharma can consistently measure and quantify drug deposition in discrete regions in the nasal cavity. We also offer unique and specialized techniques for alternative bioequivalence (MDRS). Aptar Pharma’s analytical service teams, can develop and validate cGMP test methods, run routine analytical testing for clinical and commercial batch release, as well as generate data forming part of the regulatory submission (ie In-vitro Bioequivalence (IVBE), Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC), and drug product characterization (DPC) as per regulatory guidelines. Aptar Pharma services have one of the most comprehensive analytical testing capabilities for nasal products found anywhere.

Clinical Trials Support

When a nasal spray product is being developed, our customers rely on us for cGMP production of nasal drug delivery technologies, representative of the commercial device, to support their clinical trials. Our network of partnered CDMOs can be utilized to manufacture the drug device combination product in cGMP facilities that meet regulatory requirements.

Human Factor Testing & Services

Aptar Pharma’s Noble group provides Human Factors testing and services (HF+) to help customers to evaluate the overall usability, and patient preferences of self-administered drugs delivered with a nasal device. We do this by performing formative and validation studies with patients to U.S. FDA and EMEA guidelines, extending to regulatory strategy and submission support.

Noble can also perform market studies for training and onboarding tactics supporting stakeholder needs and market expectations. As customer’s progress to commercial scale-up, Noble is there developing custom training devices, literature, and training to make your new nasal product a success as you enter the market and post launch.
