Please join us at our exciting Container Closure Integrity Day! The event will take place on March 13th where industry experts will delve into the critical realm of Container Closure Integrity (CCI) for the pharmaceutical sector. Explore the dynamic landscape of regulatory shifts impacting parenteral package formats, including IV bags, vials, pre-filled syringes, cartridges, ampoules, and combination devices.
Our event aims to address the challenges in dissecting information and identifying the most suitable methods for your parenteral drug product. Discover solutions that help assess, evaluate, and mitigate risks associated with container-closure systems. Gain insights into effective product lifecycle management strategies, ensuring both product quality and patient safety.
Additionally, deterministic Container Closure Integrity Testing (CCIT) are currently used in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries to:
- Characterize and understand Maximum Allowable Leakage Limit (MALL)
- Screen and select optimal as well as compatible container components for package development
- Understand Container Closure Integrity (CCI) of new package/container formats undergoing cold and ultra-cold storage conditions in real-time
- Proactively prevent package integrity recalls – mitigate package integrity risks
Don't miss this opportunity to stay at the forefront of advancements in Container Closure Integrity. Join us for informative presentations and discussions that promise to enhance your understanding of this critical aspect of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
We are excited to see you in person at the Olde Mill Inn, Basking Ridge, NJ!
