Sanner IDP-Process®: tailor-made packaging in six steps

Inhalers with special geometry, a new type of child-resistant closures, or a breakage-proof dual-chamber syringe? No matter how challenging the project is, Sanner’s IDP-Process® provides customers with individual packaging solutions and manages their requests from the first idea right through to serial production. The smart, efficient and safe IDP-Process® meets even the most challenging drug packaging requirements.

IDP stands for ‘Idea. Design. Product.’ and consists of a six-phase development process that has only one goal: an individual, high-quality packaging solution.

In the concept phase, the Sanner specialists develop different approaches based on customer demands and regulatory requirements, whilst already taking into account the criteria for subsequent serial production. Once the customer has chosen his favorite solutions, the concepts are further specified in the design phase, followed by qualification and testing of required equipment and product samples during the prototype phase.

The industrialization phase consists of the final manufacture, installation and qualification of production equipment, as well as the definition of parameters for a smooth and efficient production process. This process is validated in the implementation phase, while all documents required for approval and registration of both drugs and packaging are issued simultaneously. While the customer starts rolling-out his product, Sanner makes sure that consistently high product quality is maintained in serial production.

After the market launch, Sanner further supports customers with dedicated services over the entire product life cycle. To this end, a high priority is on strictly GMP-compliant manufacturing and 100 percent traceability.
