Overview

Join us on our journey from the components of a syringe to a customer needs oriented pre-filled syringe system. This two-day interactive course will provide an overview of relevant practical aspects and trends of developing and processing of pre-filled syringes. It will also address relevant regulatory requirements related to materials, components and processes of pre-filled syringes. Special focus is given to the perspectives of health care practitioners and patients covering the relationships of syringe properties with aspects of drug administration. In hands-on sessions participants will have the opportunity to study pieces of equipment such as syringes, stoppers, needle shields and tip caps in more detail. Processing steps, inspection and quality aspects will be demonstrated using state-of-the-art technology. Discussions of real case examples and Q&A sessions will complement the course.
