At PCI, ensuring life-changing medicines reach those who need it most is our highest priority. As a truly integrated global CDMO, we are manufacturing, packaging and supply chain experts, harnessing our experience and expertise to deliver you a seamless solution with the ultimate aim of improving the lives of patients.
Following the prototyping phase of the package design and development process, PCI’s packaging engineers provide extensive proof of concept testing capabilities, manage safety requirements, assist with material selection, and work with cross-functional operational groups to ensure your package will run efficiently on the packaging equipment.
Data from the testing process is then used to support regulatory compliance, our rapid sample production of commercial grade prototypes can accelerate this evaluation phase and ultimately aid speed-to-market.
