Combination Products

The Food & Drug Administration defines a Combination Product as: “Therapeutic and diagnostic products composed of any combination of a drug and a device; a biological product and a device; a drug and a biological product; or a drug, device, and a biological product.”

Some estimates suggest that up to 30% of recent FDA submissions are combination products. As a result of this growing trend, the FDA has set up a separate department for the review of such products.

The potential benefits of Combination Products include:

  • Localized treatment labor
  • Reduction in labor and time
  • Reduction in risk of contamination, and
  • Precise dosage control

At Life Science Outsourcing, all Combination and BioPharm product activities such as Fill / Package are performed in a Class 100 Cleanroom. All manufacturing and warehousing is cGMP compliant. Our featured services include the low-cost and rapid scale-up manufacturing of Phase I Pharmaceuticals and Combination devices.
