Application & Manufacturing of High Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (HPAPI)

High Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (HPAPIs) are majorly used to treat oncology-related conditions. Usually, a compound is considered high-potent when the operational exposure limit is below 10 µg/m3 of air as an 8-hour time-weighted average. High Potent drugs can be administrated through oral, injection or topical route depending on the source of the disease. The majority of the HPAPIs are small molecules with a known therapeutic property and the absorption rate is high.

The manufacturing of high-potent active pharmaceutical ingredient (HPAPI) requires stringent safety conditions and containment. Because of the high investment in infrastructure and capabilities, many pharma companies outsource their high potent API needs to Contract Research and Development Organizations (CDMOs). CDMOs such as Aurigene Pharmaceutical Services, are well equipped to support. A usual outsourcing project starts with a chemical entity test to define the occupational exposure limit (OEL). Once the OEL is established, the containment plan is devised to assess the buffer between no effect and effect. This buffer helps in preventing human exposure and avoiding contamination.

The manufacturing of HPAPIs requires an isolated environment that is typically equipped with isolators and cleanrooms. Operated under negative pressure and with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter systems, cleanrooms prevent the emission of any HPAPI.

A containment plan is in place to ensure that employees are trained and equipped to handle HPAPI projects safely. Our team at Aurigene Pharmaceutical Services is well equipped to handle HPAPIs and has the experience to handle your projects safely and efficiently.
