PDA EU00163 All about Pre-Filled Syringe Systems - Basic Course

Copenhagen, Denmark
Ask a Question Exhibitor Standard Contract Clause

Join us on a journey, from the components of a syringe to the customer needs of a pre-filled syringe system.

This two-day interactive course is mainly suited for individuals new in the PFS environment or to refresh dated knowledge. Understanding the specifics of materials like glass, special polymers and elastomers is key for a successful finished PFS drug product. The speakers give guidance into the complex interdependencies of PFS as both primary packaging and medical device.

Fill&Finish necessities will be trained in detail. Next to relevant practical aspects and trends of developing and processing of pre-filled syringes, the course will also address basics in regulatory requirements related to materials, components and processes of pre-filled syringes. Special focus is given to the performance and pharmaceutical requirements, user requirements will be touched.

In hands-on sessions, participants will study pieces of equipment such as syringes, stoppers, needle shields and tip caps in detail. Processing steps, inspection and quality aspects will be demonstrated. Discussions of real case examples and Q&A sessions will complement the course.

Who Should Attend
  • Packaging engineers with little or no experience in pre-filled syringes
  • Pharmacists and formulation developers who want to learn about pre-filled syringes as a device
  • Quality, Purchasing, Business Development, Sales
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the course participants will:

  • Know the stakeholders in pre-fillable and pre-filled syringes
  • Understand what the packaging supplier can support with and what can only be done at the pharma company
  • Understand pre-filled syringe technologies, materials, applications and requirements
  • Are able to develop a syringe system that fits the needs of a dedicated application
  • Are able to compare different syringe types with regard to their advantages and disadvantages
