During the last decade, PDA’s Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices has become the must-attend meeting for everyone working in the field, and is now the world’s largest conference on this subject.
There is a continued process in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry to improve the application of injectables. Starting from primary packaging solutions to devices with increased functionalities new concepts are being developed to better serve the patient needs. Innovations cover a broad range like new materials, new devices, smart devices, special application systems for challenging formulations. Together with these innovations new manufacturing, handling and testing requirements need to be developed.
Furthermore, regulatory demands are constantly changing as well, posing challenges to everyone involved in pharmaceutical science, technology and manufacturing of parenterals.
