Making Options Easy: EZ-fill Vials, Cartridges and Syringes on a standard Nest&Tub concept (Gabriel Zenker, Stevanato Group)
The pharmaceutical market is moving towards complex and specialized drugs where the aim is more effective treatments targeting specific diseases.
This new scenario requires a high degree of flexibility to shorten development cycles and time to market, still providing superior quality containers to safely store these high potential drugs.
The growing trend is to choose combined packaging and devices including a set of key features that simplify all the operations in order to allow the Pharmaceutical Companies to focus on drug developments.
This paper presents an integrated solution to meet the market requirements focusing on a new process and packaging concept that change the paradigm of cost and technical approach.
Stability of Pharm Preparations in PFS - A packaging perspective (Koh SokTiang, West)
Prefilled syringes (PFS) as the preferred dosage form for injectables is growing in importance and the market trends and drivers serve to testify the application.
This presentation looks into the factors contributing to the role of PFS and also the packaging considerations to be made, to ensure that the pharmaceutical preparation is stable particularly since the PFS serve both as a storage and administration device.
The presentation introduces the drivers, markets and selection factors for self injection devices. It further gives an overview on available self injection device categories based on different primary packaging and explains the different device technologies.
Finally the latest news and trends regarding the maturing market for reliable and easy to use pens and autoinjectors are presented to complete the overview.
Growing your business through functional label solutions for injectables (Ann L. Merchant, Schreiner MediPharm )
The presentation provides an overview on state of the art technologies for the labeling of primary containers for injectables. Customized label solutions with integrated functionalities can add value to the product by optimizing processes and increasing patient safety.
Intelligent specialty labels are for instance equipped with integrated hangers, removable documentation parts and multi-page designs.
Label-integrated safety devices, individual labeling solutions for pens and autoinjectors as well as anti-tampering and counterfeiting protection technologies offer useful functions as well. Ultimately, innovative labeling solutions simplify dispensing and administering of pharmaceuticals, enhance drug safety and clearly reduce process costs.
Automatic Inspection for Pharmaceutical products, from contaminants detection to measurement and characterization in real time (Andrea Sardella, Stevanato Group)
A new generation of machines with continuous handling at high speed increase the Optrel portfolio for the next years. New high speed and high resolution sensor technology in conjunction with more powerful real-time dedicated processing electronics open opportunities for incrementing the performances of the inspection machines by implementing not only detection algorithm but also classification strategies in real-time.
Its will provide a feedback on the quality level and nevertheless on the production process itself characterizing the type of contaminants and reducing substantially the false reject due to bubble presence or colloidal aggregation typical of biotech drugs.
In this session we will present the results obtained applying this technology on different product formulations and the benefits for the manufacturing.
