Overview

Pharmaceutical elastomers are commonly applied in the form of stoppers, plungers, and O-rings for parenteral drug-delivery applications. Here, good sealing is an apparent property for effective drug containment; however, there are several other critical attributes that govern the selection of an appropriate elastomeric component for safe and efficacious drug-delivery.

In this training course, you will gain insight into the fundamentals of pharmaceutical elastomers with practical considerations. Industry experts will describe component selection strategies, review manufacturing technologies, component processing and sterilization techniques. There will be a focus to understand the origin of defects and analytical tools applied for their characterization.
