Overview

Bringing a pharmaceutical product to the market is not an easy task. Manufacturers must not only develop an effective drug but also a streamlined and safe delivery system. The pharmaceutical packaging plays a significant role on the drug stability, in the filling processes, ease of use during administration, and ultimately the drug’s success. Pharmaceutical packaging comes in different types and materials. Glass dominates the market, but the use of polymer containers is expected to grow in the next few years. More and more pharma companies are asking the question if polymer-based containers can be an alternative? And how can they choose the right container and material for their product?

This training course will focus on polymer primary packaging and provide an extensive overview about the different materials and type of containers with their respective advantages and limitations. Also, the different manufacturing technologies will be discussed. Last, but not least, most recent requirements, future trends and innovations in polymer pharmaceutical packaging will be outlined.
