Time: 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

If you are developing a drug intended for prefilled applications, the component design and material selection during development must take into account intended user requirements and fill finish requirements. This course will focus on providing a detailed understanding of the newest packaging technologies that support evolving drug and patient needs, considerations that must take into account, quality expectations to fulfill regulatory requirements, and how new manufacturing strategies are being applied to provide flexibility and decreased investments. The course will follow a practical approach to assist the audience in understanding influences of all involved components and processes such as glass, polymer, elastomer, bulk, nested, silicon, filling and closing. The instructors will give a detailed insight of the complex interaction between components, containers and processes, and will follow with discussions on avoiding issues in development and overcoming hurdles faster.

Who Should Attend

This course is for drug development scientists, packaging and conditioner development engineers and device engineers, as well as personnel who are in manufacturing for fill-finish, QA involved in fill-finish and sterility assurance, product management, technical operations, purchasing and brand marketing.
