Non-inhalation sprays include skin and mucous membrane sprays. Skin sprays mainly play the role of wound protection, cleaning and disinfection, local anesthesia and hemostasis. Sprays for vaginal mucosa are commonly used as O/W foam sprays, which are mainly used to treat vaginitis caused by microorganisms and parasites, and also for birth control. Besides, there are other types of non-inhalation sprays.
CD Formulation provides formulation development for non-inhalation spray formulations, including drug efficacy testing and excipient screening services. We also provide physicochemical performance testing of non-inhalation spray formulations and provide our clients with comprehensive analysis reports of the formulations.
The specific services we currently provide for non-inhalation spray formulation development include the following.
Quality control of non-inhalation sprays requires, on the one hand, a comprehensive evaluation of the properties of the drug solution itself based on the raw materials and preparation process; on the other hand, it is necessary to pay attention to the investigation of the spray including spray angle, particle size distribution, mist flow rate, spray pattern and other properties to ensure the uniformity and stability of the formulation quality.
The stability of drug formulations is inseparable from the physicochemical properties of the drug itself, such as drug solubility, permeability, pH, etc. These physicochemical properties also directly affect the prescription design of sprays.
As an important part of the spray, the spraying device not only determines the spray volume and number of sprays, but also has a direct impact on the spraying characteristics such as droplet shape and spray pattern. The particle size of the drug sprayed by the spraying device affects the uniform distribution of the drug in the mucous membrane.
Non-inhalation sprays are mainly administered on the skin and mucous membranes, and the irritation and toxic effects of the drug on the mucous membranes are directly related to the safety of the sprays. Our laboratory can provide safety studies, pharmacodynamic experiments, acute toxicity reactions and local irritation reactions tests to analyze whether there are irritation and sensitization effects of the preparation.
