API & Surrogate Assessment
Workers involved in the manufacture of drug substances can be exposed to active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) designed with the express intention of interaction with the human system and modification of its functioning. Whilst such modification is generally desirable in patients, any modification in function whether positive or negative is an unacceptable outcome in the pharmaceutical industry worker. In addition, developments in research for new compounds and research techniques are creating new hazards.
Monitoring & analysis of fugitive emissions during the process becomes more important to ensure “No Exposures” to workers to APIs. SSIPL has expertise in conducting sampling and analysis of more than 1000 APIs. Surrogate sampling popularly known for Glove Box Sampling is also being conducted by SSIPL for lactose, sodium naproxen, etc as per the client’s requirement.
