Flexible Parenteral Manufacturing – Seed to Vial

April 18, 2018 | 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m.

Jacob K. Javits Convention Center - New York, NY

New this year is a Tour which focuses on equipment aimed at providing flexibility. You’ll learn that flexibility comes in many different forms, from time-saving disposable fluid transfer systems to interchangeable, multi-format filling machines designed to accommodate a full range of product types and containers. Join us as we follow the life cycle of product production and see how these solutions can be applied from the early stages of seed production through the final filling of drug products.
