The world of combination products continues to expand in the world of biologic medicine. Care is shifting from hospital to home administration, and devices are an integral part of the patient experience. With the patient in mind, the 2017 PDA Container Closure, Devices and Delivery Systems: Compatibility and Material Safety Workshop will focus on the most current and relevant topics in the world of container closure for device and delivery systems as it relates to material compatibility and safety.

Talks will cover a wide range of topics, including the future of delivery devices, considerations in qualifying device and packaging platforms, best practices in extractable/leachable and quality concerns, biocompatibility testing, supply chain considerations and the strategies and expectations to meet current regulations.

The Workshop is designed specifically to bring key topics to the forefront, and to provide an open forum for discussion with colleagues and members of regulatory agencies. The wide breadth of subjects makes this forum appropriate for people working in combination product development and design, process validation, quality control, product testing, biocompatibility testing and so on. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the current regulatory and corporate practices that are being used in the industry.
