Microarray patch (MAP) technologies are rapidly advancing for a variety of pharmaceutical and vaccine delivery applications. As with all pharmaceutical products, MAPs require packaging to provide protection, maintain safety and a suitable level of sterility, and promote usability and acceptability. As such, packaging strategy needs to be considered early and throughout MAP development. Primary requirements for MAP packaging include physical protection, moisture barrier, usability, and appropriate microbial protection.
This report describes the critical considerations for MAP packaging, including requirements, packaging configurations and components, sterility control, and usability and programmatic fit. This report is intended as a resource for MAP developers and manufacturers.
