Extractable and Leachable Testing Market Overview

The extractable and leachable testing market is estimated to be worth $1 billion in 2028, growing at CAGR of 9.9 % during the forecast period. Harmful chemicals / contaminants from primary packaging have often been shown to migrate into pharmaceutical products, threatening the safety of several patients who use these products. For instance, in 2010, McNeil Consumer Healthcare was compelled to recall more than 500 lots of Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec upon being made aware of the presence of an antifungal chemical, called 2, 4, 6-tribromoanisole (which is used to chemically treat shipping pallets), in the aforementioned product formulations. In this particular case, the chemical, which is a potential carcinogen, had leached from the pallet, through the outer packaging into the drug containers. It is worth highlighting that this incident caused the manufacturer to suffer a loss of approximately USD 900 million. In fact, in 2014, data by the FDA demonstrated that in the previous two years, there have been over 2,000 drug and device recalls. In the year 2014 alone, FDA has recalled over 800 drugs. In addition, in 2015, Allergan voluntarily recalled certain batches of its eye ointment due to contamination reported by customers.

Considering the aforementioned cases, it can be inferred that, during drug product manufacturing and fill / finish, it is important to consider not only the impurity profiles of the drugs, but also identify potential sources of contamination in the containers / packaging material used. Extractables is the term used to refer to compounds that are extracted from the material used to fabricate closed container systems, in the presence of a particular solvent. On the other hand, leachables are substances that passively migrate into drug formulations from the container closure system used, upon direct contact with the product. Further, due to high variability in the type of impurities (organic (volatile, non-volatile or semi- volatile compounds) or inorganic (metals or salts) elements) that are usually extracted / leached out of various manufacturing components and container closures, it is not possible to identify, characterize and quantify all extractables, using a single analytical technique. Nowadays, a variety of testing solutions / assays are available to assess the risk associated with the migration of mobile chemical species from either the components used during manufacturing, or storage containers. Moreover, regulatory bodies have implemented stringent guidelines, making it mandatory for drug developers and packaging service providers to closely monitor the levels of extractables and leachables in pharmaceutical products, drug delivery systems and biomedical devices. Presently, a number of companies offer services for extractables and leachables testing, and such offerings have grown to become an important segment of the overall pharmaceutical industry.
