CPG performs extractables and leachable studies for product development, quality control, and regulatory approval for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, food products, cosmetics, and packaging.

LEACHING AND EXTRACTION CONDITIONS

Scientists at CPG design simulated conditions to mimic the relevant environment for the product in question.

These conditions may be:

  • Shelf-storage conditions for packaging studies
  • In vivo environment for medical device behavior
  • Animal studies

For extraction studies, the relevant solvent for extraction is selected based on the leachable component in question, along with extraction conditions (temperature and duration).

LEACHABLES/EXTRACTABLES ANALYSIS

The analysis technique to identify and quantify the leaching or extraction behavior is selected based on the leachable compounds in question, but usually include one or more of the following:

  • GC-MS
  • HPLC
  • UV-Vis
  • FTIR
  • TOC

Analysis is often performed in time studies, to determine the elution rate as a function of exposure time.

Coatings, coating flow and coating adhesion involve multiple phenomena that often result in complex processes and complicated behaviors. Shear and extensional rheology can be equally important in the actual coating process, but often mass-transfer for solvents and heat and cooling rates also play a part, as well as the surface chemistry and how the surface interacts with the coating. In addition, coating molecularly thin layers involves understanding the surface chemistry and tools required to create robust layers and activations. The balance between all of these phenomena, and the manner in which they evolve, will strongly influence your outcomes. Although often one might consider coating flows as being large-scale industrial applications and printing and web coating, these processes play a significant role in less obvious applications. For example, drug-eluting stents can be coated using a roll-method, and thin films can be made in this manner. By leveraging CPG's broad expertise to gain a complete understanding of a procedure's physics and sensitivity to conditional variations, our clients are able to maximize the potential utility of new materials and products. In addition, changing the surface chemistry of your material can greatly enhance adhesion or functionality, and through our partner at PlasmaTreat (www.plasmatreat.com) we can provide the concept-to-production service you require to maximize your product's performance.

To determine the true performance of a material over time requires shelf-aging and follow-up testing. In reality this is time consuming and costly to perform and so often accelerated aging protocols are used to accelerate the process. Generally speaking these make use of the Arrhenius equation to map an elevated temperature to an effective ambient age through an assumption that all chemical reaction rates are accelerated equally. Although care must be taken in making this assumption (phase transitions and thermal activations must be considered) these tools are routinely used in orthopaedics (ASTM F1980 and F2003) as well as in other industrial applications (ASTM D5427, D6521, D3434 and others). In addition, modifications to these tests for specific conditions are often necessary, such as increased pressures or temperatures, specific gases, or environments that mimic in vivo conditions. We can run the aging tests, and then analyze the samples for changes in chemistry, mechanical properties, or degradation product development.
