Frequently Asked Product & Process Development Questions (FAQs)
How do you handle technology transfer when an onsite visit is not possible?
Traditionally, tech transfer has required a site visit, but occasionally this is not possible. This makes the tech transfer process more challenging, as it increases the risks on both the technology and business sides, but Kymanox has procedures in place to handle these situations. We request video walkthroughs of facilities and filming of critical processes and additional aspects such as important tips from operators at the sending site. Documentation review and a deeper understanding of the process at a very early stage become even more important. Additional meetings with the subject matter experts (SMEs) are typically needed to cover additional questions and ensure a smooth tech transfer process.
What is a Detailed Product and Process Description (DPPD) and why do I need it?
Although the DPPD is not a mandatory document that is required by the FDA, it is an essential document for a successful tech transfer process. Our subject matter experts (SMEs) will work with you to document all process and product history. Everything is summarized in a detailed report, and this document covers everything from product specifications, process details, in-process checks, and critical equipment, to material and critical equipment vendors, tests done on materials and processes, and raw materials specifications. Many companies prefer to keep their DPPD up to date, as it is also a proven tool that supports training of new employees.
At what phase of the development process should I engage Kymanox and why?
Kymanox is ready and able to support you at any point during the development process, however, earlier is better! Changes to product design become exponentially more expensive and challenging as development progresses. Kymanox can provide expert review of your proposed development and regulatory strategy and make sure your project is set up for success. Whether your product is in early concept feasibility, preparing for a clinical trial, gearing up for commercialization, or anywhere between, Kymanox can provide scalable and phase-appropriate support solutions.
I recently selected a contract manufacturer for my product. Why involve Kymanox now?
Kymanox is uniquely positioned to represent our client’s interests and ensure your contract manufacturer is held accountable to maintain project budget and timelines. Access to the entire Kymanox network of subject matter experts (SMEs) provides our customers and their Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs) with technical, quality, and regulatory strategy guidance to ensure the successful approval and launch of your product. Technical development programs commonly encounter unforeseen technical and supply chain issues, and many of these problems can be outside the scope of your development agreement with the CDMO. Kymanox can quickly deploy the appropriate experts to investigate the problem and provide efficient solutions to keep your project on schedule.
