In the 21st century, where everyone races to achieve more in the world, it is a necessity to pay attention to physical health. Healthy health is necessary for everyone to live their lives. The pharmaceutical industry is the most significant industry closely related to human health and lives. It includes research and development, production, the discovery of new drugs and medications, and vaccinations. Patient counsellors, medical experts, scientists, medical organizations, health specialists, modern medicines, pharmacists, and doctors are the most trusted and important members of healthcare.
The pharmaceutical industry has five important segments
- Contract research and manufacturing services (CRAMS)
- Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API)/bulk drugs
- Biological and bio-similar
In this video series, we will go further into the significant 5 segments of the pharmaceutical industry. one by one. The contract research and manufacturing services segment is the fastest-growing segment in the pharmaceutical industry, and it includes drug and medicine safety and quality. Outsourcing and low-cost production are provided by contract research organizations (CROs) and contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs). They examine drug quality and whether USFDA, Australian-TGA, UKMCA, and EMEA regulations are followed.
What is API?
The second major segment of pharmaceuticals is APIs. These are the main ingredients and substances in medicine responsible for positive health effects. Medication is composed of two substances: one is API, which is the principal ingredient in pain relief, and the other is an excipient, which is the vehicle for API delivery. APIs are the backbone of pharmaceutical or biotech products. APIs are powders, liquids, and crystals obtained through chemical synthesis, biotechnology, and animal and plant extracts. There are two types of APIs – chemical synthetic API and natural synthetic API.
The API industry includes number of processes:
- multi-step chemical synthesis process,
- purification & filtration,
- drying & milling,
Looking closely at chemical synthesis and their process:
This is the process of constructing various types of organic and inorganic chemicals and others. Such as carbon compounds, acids, carbonates, carbohydrates, and hydrochloric and phosphoric acids, and many more. In the chemical synthesis method, chemical reactions occur with other intermediates according to a multi-step process of chemical reactions, transformations, and operations. For example, solvent ingredients and water acid solutions are mixed and passed through a gas solvent catalyst. Chemical reactions are carried out in reactors and heated by reflux. After the reaction, the waste is separated from the liquid, and the final solvent goes through crystallization and distillation for the purification of the solid. The impure solid is dissolved in a boiling solvent and cooled slowly. After the separation, the final step is drying to remove water or any other suspension from the solution. Once the APIs have been dried, they are filled into drums for clinical tests after being finished.
Challenges face in API industry:
The API production process faces many challenges, such as impurities of chemicals, unwanted substances during processing, the identification of small particles of unwanted substances, and the requirement of fresh and high-quality water and high-temperature room conditions.
API production needs high quality and customised filtration solutions to remove these all-unwanted substances.
