Excerpt of Horst’s interview:

Q) What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the pre-filled syringes field at the moment?

“It is still to increase the acceptance of this high-end polymer PFS and their use in DDC in the pharmaceutical packaging development areas.”

Q) What current hot topic will you be addressing in your presentation and what would you say makes it relevant to 2020?

“I will address the regulatory ISO and Pharmacopoeia requirements regarding empty and filled PFS. It helps to get a better understanding on the regulatory environment around PFS…”

Horst will lead Workshop B ‘Testing requirements of Pre-Filled Syringes’ which will describe the regulatory testing requirements of pre-filled syringes. It will give an overview of materials used for PFS as well as the need for testing throughout the different stages of a PFS.
