We use different types of medicaments almost every single day. Yet, do we really think about how exactly those are produced, what kind of regulations need to be achieved in order to have a certain tablet on the market? Still, should we be bothered about such things anyway? It appears as though in the greater part of cases, the solution is pretty apparent – we seldom have to think about such things.
Yet, there are few subject areas that seem to be somehow important.
One of such things is a combination product. What is that you, may ask? The truth be told, there are several explanations, but all of them can be boiled down the basics. A combination product is a thing where the following words range overlaps: drug, device, biologic. So broadly speaking, we can say that it’s a product made up of any combo of a as well as drug, or device and biological part etc. However, Nonetheless, we could say as well that two isolated products packaged with each other in a single set composed of discussed earlier drug, accessory and biologic product.
One of the most clear examples that cames to our head are an insulin injector device or transdermal patches. The vast majority of such devices used together with drugs play very important role in people’s lives. Due to systematically increasing incidents of diabetes, we can observe a growing need for this kind of combo products.
Different manufacturers are trying to use a medical device contract in order to improve and facilitate the production process. It is all for the market demands as it seems that various types of combination products are going to be needed in the future as well.
