Defining the right quality for drug products

Each drug product has specific demands such as cosmetic, dimensional, functional, chemical and more. To meet these demands, the quality needs to be determined. The process of defining the quality of a primary container can be complicated, due to the consideration of several parameters.

To facilitate and accelerate this process, the company developed Nipro Quality Levels, created to meet specific drug product requirements – eNable, eNhance and eNgage.

Primary packaging manufactured according to eNable quality answers to the requirements of prevailing drug products such as small molecules, anticoagulants, water for injection (WFI) and diluents.

Primary packaging produced according to eNhance quality fulfils the requirements of highly sensitive drugs such as large molecule, vaccine, biotech, cosmetic and ophthalmic.

Demonstrating Nipro DNA to provide flexible solutions, primary packaging produced according to eNgage quality meets the requirements of drug products that surpass the eNable and eNhance quality level, offering out-of-box solutions.
