We proudly present our 4th annual Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast conference and exhibition, taking place this year on the 26th and 27th April in Boston, MA due to popular demand.

Pre-filled syringes are a great modern innovation in allowing patients to manage their conditions independently. Increase in chronic diseases, high competition between market providers, and drive for increased safety and ease for the self-administering of drugs, has made the pre-filled syringes market an dynamic and innovative one. Huge growth is forecast for the pre-filled syringe market in coming years.

With many factors at play here; regulation, manufacturing, safety assessment and combination products being just a few, navigating the pre-filled syringe industry can present complex challenges to success.

Join us in April at Pre-Filled Syringes East Coast to highlight and address the main challenges facing those working within the formulation, development, strategy and success of prefills.
