Excerpt of Krystin’s Interview:

The Pre-Filled Syringes market has matured greatly over recent years, what key differences have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?

From a regulatory perspective, the most significant updates have been in Europe and our understanding of the impact of Article 117 on medicinal products with integral medical devices”.

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

“Uncertainty in the regulatory space. A new regulatory paradigm is taking effect in May 2020 in Europe for pre-filled syringes, and simultaneously there are many questions in the US and globally surrounding digital health and how it will integrate with PFS presentations and what the regulatory implications of those are”.
