Enabling the Next Generation of Pre-Filled Syringes from Design to Manufacturing

SMi Group
Posted on: 13 Dec 17

SMi’s next annual conference in the global series of events on Pre-Filled Syringes will return to Boston, Massachusetts next April with Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast 2018. Growing year on year, the 5th annual conference and exhibition has already attracted an international audience of medical device experts and senior industry specialists from Belgium, Finland, France, Japan, United Kingdom and USA.

“Over the past decade, pre-filled syringe venues have grown significantly in terms of content and attendance and much of this can be attributed to the interest and need to share information, as the development of pre-filled syringe drug products are a prime example of complex, multidisciplinary efforts” said Dhairya Mehta, Associate Director of Device and Combination Products at Shire. “Pre-filled syringes have undoubtedly improved the lives of the patients who rely on these drug products. As an industry, we share a responsibility to continue to develop and evolve these drug products as new technologies in delivery, formulation and manufacturing emerge.”

Agenda highlights will include a unique spotlight on feeding back human factors and end user considerations into PFS design with keynotes from Shire, Sanofi Pharmaceuticals, Terumo Pharmaceutical Services and Matchstick. As well as providing attendees with a critical insight from a patient perspective, the session will discuss leveraging performative research, the future of combination products and debate on patient compliance through real world case studies.

“The meeting will allow for the face-to-face assembly of subject matter experts in all areas related to the development of pre-filled syringe and other related combination drug products, and thereby provide a tremendous opportunity for meaningful discourse” said Stephen Barat, Head of Pre-Clinical and Early Clinical Development from Scynexis. “We look forward to seeing you there!”

SMi’s 5th annual 2018 Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast conference and exhibition will take place on 11th & 12th April at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, Massachusetts, USA.
