When making Parenteral Drug Products, pharmaceutical companies are faced with the need to further investigate the materials that will be in contact with the drug product, either during manufacturing, intermediate storage, storage in its final packaging, or during the delivery of the drug to the patient. While historically, the potential safety issues were the main driver in these kinds of investigations, recently, also quality issues – i.e. for biophar-maceuticals – have become an additional concern.
This workshop will look at "Extractables & Leachables" from many different angles: Definitions, Regulatory, Material & Polymer Science, Analytical E/L Methodologies, Safety Assessments, Study Design for different parenteral primary packaging systems, as well as for injection devices.
In addition, during the workshop, a full session will be dedicated to an in-depth update on regulations, standards and recommendations in this field (PQRI, USP, ISO 10993, BPOG...).
