Parenteral drug delivery using pre-filled syringes and cartridges in combination with devices is of great importance, especially for the application of biopharmaceutical products.
The development of such delivery systems is complex and therefore it is important to consider critical aspects early on in development. This workshop considers the potential influences of primary packaging components on the quality, in particular for biopharmaceuticals. The most relevant aspects are the quality and the chemical and physical interactions of the packaging material with the product. Special considerations are given to the influence of particles, extractables and leachables, silicon oil and handling on the product quality, e.g. aggregation, degradation routes and stability. Experts from academia, the pharmaceutical industry and suppliers of packaging components will share their experiences. There will be plenty of time for discussion, interaction and questions you may have.
