With tremendous progress in the past decade, drug delivery continues to face challenges meeting the market needs of improving administration, compliance, safety, costs, and accuracy. Only through an integrated approach to developing pre-filled syringes and injection devices can we be successful in delivering a successful product that delivers a positive patient experience.

New advances in materials of construction, manufacturing processes, injection processes and safety devices, and other technology improvements create a dynamic environment in the drug delivery device arena. Regulatory requirements, industry experience, and evolving market trends are critical considerations to ensure a complete understanding of the application of pre-filled syringes and injection devices to drug delivery. The challenges of new product introduction and support of existing products require that companies be aware of new developments.

The 2018 PDA Universe of Pre-Filled Syringes and Injection Devices brings together industry and regulatory experts to share their experiences, new developments, regulatory considerations, challenges, and industry trends in this exciting area. The topics will benefit those looking for a basic understanding of pre-filled syringes and injection devices as well as those looking for a more in-depth presentation of current challenges and developments. This is a must-attend event for all industry professionals involved in the development, manufacturing, marketing, or use of pre-filled syringes and injection devices.

Sessions will cover topics such as:

  • Quality Infrastructure and Issues
  • New Technologies and Trends in Manufacturing Processes
  • Case studies
  • Human Factors/Usability
  • Injection Devices: Critical Attributes and Risk Management
  • Regulatory and Compliance Aspects of Combination Products
