SmartPak®

A multidosagepackaging system

forinjectableantibiotics

Tehran, May 2010


What is smartpak

WhatisSmartPak®?

  • SmartPak® is apatentedDrug Delivery & Packaging Systemdesigned to simplify thereconstitution of antibioticsin the Hospital Pharmacy Compounding Center

SmartPak® providesthe CentralizedPreparation of intravenoussolutions in UNIT DOSES startingfromRawMaterials(CompoundingPhilosophy).

It can beconsidered one of the mostimportantstepsfor the future of HospitalPharmacies.

Centralizationsmeans: fromRAW MATERIALthroughoperationstepsto UNIT DOSES(no vials)

How is smartpak built up

HowisSmartPak®builtup?

SmartPakiscomposedoftwo separate bags:

  • The inner bagismadeof low density polyethylene in direct contactwith the injectableantibioticraw material and itassures the stability of the powder.

Innerbag

(This material has been employed successfully for many years, and its compatibility with many anti-infective powders has been firmly established. )

  • The outer bagprotects the inner bag (and the material contained within) from light, moisture and oxidation. This bag is not in contact with the drug product. It consists of a laminated aluminum foil of four layers joined together, with the internal layer made of an additive-free polymer.

Where can smartpak be applied

WherecanSmartPak®be applied?

  • The bestfield where CENTRALIZATION can beappliedis thepreparation of antibioticsforprophylaxis, whereconsumptions of antibiotics are high and standardized.

  • However, the CentralizedPreparation of antibioticscreates a lot of incoveniences due to:

  • the vastamount of work

  • the contaminationrisks

SmartPakis a new delivery system designedby ACS Dobfartosimplify the reconstitutionofinjectableantibiotics in the Hospital PharmacyCompounding Center.

Reconstitution of raw material isdone in theinner bag and the preparation of unitdosesready-to-use are performed in atotallyclosed system.

SmartPak® iscompatiblewithcommerciallyavailablepumps, tubing sets, syringes and filling systems.

What are smartpak benefits

SmartPakis a high-tech and easy-to-use delivery system : reconstitution and syringe/minibag fillingoperation are performedbyonlytwooperators, in a cleanroom, under laminar flow.

WhatareSmartPak®benefits?

  • Preparation of unitdosesready-to-usein the Hospital Pharmacymeanshigh quality of the finisheddosageforms . Sterility and Concentrationare guaranteed directlyby the Hospital Pharmacy .

  • Chemical-PhysicalStability of the unitdosesreadytobeusedisguaranteedby ACS Dobfar (StabilityStudiesdeveloped in ACS Dobfar’s labs). All the availableproduct are stable once theyhavebeenreconstitued (eg.Cefazolin and Ceftriaxone – 28 days at 5°).

  • The high reproducibility of the centralized-preparation system and the use of the SmartPak multi-dosage bag mean optimization of the reconstitution time.

  • No glassmeansno breakages. Fewermanipulations reduce riskofcontamination. (risk management)

What is smartpak regulatory situation

WhatisSmartPak®regulatory situation?

Major question: GalenicPreparation or FinishedDosageForm?

ITALY AND OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES

USA

SmartPakisnotconsideredas anewFinishedDosageForm,butasa GalenicPreparation, thereforeno formalregistrationisneeded.

The Hospital Pharmacyhas the full responsability of the preparation.

SmartPakisconsideredas anewFinishedDosageForm, thereforeANDA (Abbreviated New DrugApplication) isneeded.

  • Only the localMinistry of Health orrelevant health

Whatareadvantages for HospitalsusingSmartPak®?

  • improved safety as itistotallyclosed system

  • reduction of number of operators exposed to any sensitization

  • improved service in terms of convenience and efficiency (ensures optimization of the preparation time of the antibiotic)

  • increased quality of thepreparations and their traceability. At the same time traceability pathway allows Hospital Pharmacist to generate a large number of epidemiologic information.
