New Book Compiles Ten Years of Glass Research

Jul 03, 2018

Are you aware of the latest glass research from the previous ten years? Do you want to learn more about new developments in glass composition? Are you still concerned about the effects of delamination?

The recently published PDA Technical Series: Pharmaceutical Glass might prove valuable. This book collects 19 articles previously published in the PDA Journal of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology between 2007 and 2017. The articles are organized into four categories: Overview, Material Composition, Delamination and Quality Methods.

Topics covered include vial breakage, chemical durability of Type I molded containers, effects of subzero temperature exposure, accelerated testing with different extraction media and more.

Ten years ago, a series of product recalls due to glass particulates found in finished product sharpened the industry’s focus on pharmaceutical glass. PDA Technical Series: Pharmaceutical Glass addresses quality issues pertaining to glass and offers manufacturers a way to understand these issues in full. The publication of this book is part of an initiative PDA launched in 2017 to connect pharmaceutical manufacturers and glass suppliers to prepare for future developments. It can be purchased in the PDA Bookstore.
