Filling API into BottlesPowder in a Bottle

To accelerate products to the clinic for early concept testing, it is not uncommon to utilize a drug reconstitution approach. The University of Iowa Pharmaceuticals prepares powder for reconstitution by filling individual doses of active pharmaceutical ingredients, or “API,” into glass or plastic bottles.

  • Drug reconstitution is performed in the clinic, or by the patient, by adding water (or some other solvent system) to the drug product and then administration to the patient.
  • This approach offers the advantage of alleviating the need to develop a formulation and the analytical testing methodologies required to test a formulation. 
  • UIP has experience preparing such products and this approach can be especially valuable when the initial goal is proof of concept.
  • These materials are prepared in our cGMP manufacturing facility under batch record, standard operating procedure and cGMP control with full Quality Assurance oversight. 
  • Once proof of concept has been shown, UIP has the capability to develop formulations and produce clinical supplies.
