User Details

Our 3rd annual Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast conference returns to New Jersey in April 2016.

With exponential growth of biologics and protein-based products, demand for pre-filled syringes (PFS) is growing on an exponential scale. As such, the global pre-filled syringes (PFS) market is presenting lucrative opportunities for both pharma and device companies- the investment forecast expects to exceed $ by 2020. According to a recent study led by Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston, switching to PFS can also cut related costs by almost 50%, equivalent to $162,000 in savings!

While we have witnessed booming investments in PFS, pharma and device manufacturers still need to overcome a number of challenges to commercialize PFS. It also faces fierce competition with innovative drug delivery platforms. Hence, developing a drug-compatible and patient-centric PFS remain top priority amongst market participant.

Emulating on previous success, the 3rd Annual Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast will delve further into the core issues of PFS including
  • human factor engineering
  • PFS material selection and GMP compliance
  • compatibility and injectability considerations for complex biologics and combination product
and many more!

Join us today and don't miss out on this must-attend event!
