Increasingly, parenteral products are injected using devices like pen-injectors, auto injectors and wearable pumps. Typically, the primary containers are pre-filled syringes and cartridges. The materials are glass or polymer. Special applications have treated surfaces or coated materials.

Starting with a key note presentation describing the needs of the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry, this workshop will give an overview of currently used devices. Technical aspects, handling and training, as well as regulations will be highlighted. Device companies will present their products and focus on the most current drug delivery requirements such as:

  • Mixing technology for liquid/liquid or lyo/liquid formulation combinations
  • Large Volume
  • High Viscosity
  • High Precision Dosing

Challenges in development impeding a life cycle approach will be one of the themes of the workshop.

Learn from suppliers' solutions, and hear guest speakers and facilitators share approval and life-cycle management experiences from developing their drug delivery combination products.

Listen to the latest trends in final assembly during drug product manufacturing and what the benefits of target-focused training for users and health care professionals can be.

Interact with other participants and speakers during panel discussions and exchange on all issues vital for ensuring success of your product.
