Pre-filled Syringes Conference 2019, Innovations & Developments: A Decade at a Glance (London, United Kingdom – February 26-27, 2019)

Syringes Conference 2019, Innovations Developments : A Decade at a
conference has been added to’s

Prefilled syringes (PFS) constitute one of the fastest growing
segments of the injectable drug delivery device market. Typically metal
and glass have been common in the past, however there has been a shift
towards plastic and disposable syringes, so the needle is protected and
cannot be reused (prefilled disposable systems).

Estimates show that the global prefilled syringes market, is likely to
reach sales of 6.9 billion by 2018, growing at a compound annual growth
rate of 13.8% from 2012 to 2018. Many examples of drugs packed into
prefilled syringes are vaccines, blood stimulants, therapeutic proteins,

The pharmaceutical market promises high potential for prefilled
syringes, however production costs are high and manufacturing is
complex. Industrial pressure arising concerning pharmacovigilance and
reducing cost suggest there are still challenges to overcome.

Why you should attend this conference:

  • Understand current market dynamics: prospects for the future
  • Analyse manufacturing options ready to fill vs bulk syringes
  • Explore approaches to ensure drug identity, potency and sterility
  • Utilise strategies to ensure quality and safety of prefilled syringes
  • Ensure pharmacovigilance practices
  • Investigate compatibility issues: avoiding changes in product quality
  • Overcome regulatory and technical hurdles
  • Discover novel prefilled syringe technology
