Marlborough, MA, April 19, 2016 – Proveris Scientific Corporation announced today that the Company’s SprayVIEW® measurement system was used by Summit Biosciences during development of the first generic unit dose nasal spray product approved by the FDA.
Approval of the abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for Sumatriptan nasal spray USP, 5 mg and 20 mg was received by Lannett Company, Inc. from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Summit Biosciences developed the product and will manufacture commercial supplies for distribution by Lannett.
SprayVIEW® measurement systems are the gold standard for measuring spray pattern and plume geometry performance of orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDPs). The systems have been validated and are in use in development and production environments at generic and branded pharmaceutical companies, CDO/CMO/CROs, device manufacturers, and regulatory agencies around the world.
“Use of the Proveris SprayVIEW® measurement system was essential in helping us gain FDA approval,” said Greg Plucinski, COO of Summit Biosciences Inc. Dino Farina, CEO of Proveris Scientific said, “We are proud to work with Summit Biosciences as an essential component in their development of the world’s first generic unit-dose nasal spray drug product.
