Pre-Filled Syringes: End-to-End Processing (2-Day Virtual Training Course: July 25-26, 2024)

Dublin, May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Pre-Filled Syringes: End-to-End Processing Training Course" conference has been added to's offering.

This intensive two-day course has been designed to offer a comprehensive, practical, and usable review of the production of PFS and will provide the latest information on all aspects of the process from manufacture and packaging for fill/finish through to final (post-fill) inspection. Quality will be a key focus of the programme and there will be extensive coverage of improvements in the manufacturing process, including advances in cleanroom technology and sterilisation.

Other sessions will address visual inspection and the latest regulatory requirements to ensure that you are fully up to date. The faculty of speakers will provide key guidance and advice from their practical experience in this field and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.
