In light of this, SMi Group will return to Central London next January with its 10th annual event, Pre-Filled Syringes Europe 2018, to leverage key drivers affecting a rapidly booming market.

1. Simplicity and ease of use: Pre-Filled Syringes reduce the number of steps required for drug administration whilst improving safety by reducing the potential for drug contamination, needlestick injuries and dosing errors.What makes injection safe? Attendees PFS Europe 2018 will explore common user problems, statistics and legislation for safety systems and learn more on why human-centered design matters.

2. The rising levels of chronic diseases have led to a significant increase in the use of injectable drugs.Attendees will discuss technical challenges in meeting specialised drug product requirements. A notable panel of speakers will provide informed guidance on primary packaging material selection, drug product stability, manufacturing, large volume injectables and device safety to meet specialised demands in parenteral drug products.

3. Pharmaceutical companies can differentiate their brands with drugs sold in pre-filled syringes.With the rise of biosimilars, innovations in pre-filled syringes can facilitate meaningful differentiation of products. The agenda for Pre-Filled Syringes 2018 will provide strategic direction presented by big pharma.

4. Improvements in technology and manufacturing to lower levels of extractables and leachables and to cater for biologics and more sensitive drugs will encourage drug companies to switch to pre-fills.Attendees will draw from case studies on leachable assessment in prefilled syringes and learn about the different relationship between extractables, simulated leachables and leachables in PFS.

SMi’s 10th annual 2018 Pre-Filled Syringes Europe conference and exhibition will take place on 17th & 18th Jan at the Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington, London UK. Further information including a detailed agenda and full speaker line-up is available at http://www.pre-filled-syringes.com
