Combination products needs to fulfill their intended purpose, means their expected quality and safety critical parameters. They need to be designed for their intended purpose and be safe during
handling. They make patients life easier, because combined products intend to be more patient friendly as uncombined products, which are more used by doctors for their proper application. They
need to fulfill during batch testing their Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL) level.
The combination product market is growing, because e.g. it’s much easier for patients to use an autoinjector than a syringe and a vial. The testing machines for combination products are like the
devices themselves a complex process, if they are not fully manually tested. You can set-up manual testing, semi- and fully automated testing, which depends on your average batch size and selling
amount. Later, if you gathered enough testing data, you can diminish the testing size accordingly, if your devices are safe enough.
