We use various sorts of medicaments on a daily basis. Nevertheless, do we really think about how exactly those are produced, what kind of restrictions need to be fulfilled in order to have a certain pill on the market? Still, do we have to be bothered about it anyway? It appears as though in the vast majority of cases, the answer is fairly clear – we don’t have to think about such things.
Yet, there are few subjects that appear to be somehow fascinating.
One of such things is something called a combination product. What’s that someone can ask? The truth be told, there are few explanations, but all of them can be boiled down to some basics. A combination product is a thing where below words range overlaps: drug, device, biologic. So generally speaking, we could say that it’s a product made up of any combo of a as well as drug, or accessory and biological product etc. On the other hand, we could say as well that two separate products packaged with each other in a single set composed of mentioned drug, device and biologic part.
One of the most clear examples that cames to our mind are an insulin injector pen or skin substitutes containing cellular elements. The vast majority of such combined products used together with medicines play very important role in diabetic’s lives. Due to systematically increasing incidents of diabetic, we can observe a growing need for such combo products.
Different manufacturers use a medical device contract in order to improve and facilitate the production process. It is all due to the market demands because it seems that different kinds of combined products are going to be needed in the future as well.
