Attention to leachables, extractables, and elemental impurities has increased due to the recent revisions of USP and ICH guidelines. This two-day conference will examine the safety, quality, and regulatory issues involved in a wide array of contexts central to the pharmaceutical industry, including drug packaging and delivery components, single-use systems, parenteral drug products, and infusion pump systems. We will hear from key industry working groups such as PQRI and BPOG. In addition, we will focus closely on the keys to satisfying recent ICH and USP guidelines for metal impurities in current and future drug products and biologics.

Featuring Comprehensive Coverage On:

  • Meeting Qualification and Compliance Implications of USP and and ICH Guidelines for Elemental Impurities
  • Industry Working Group Updates: The PQRI Leachables and Extractables Considerations for Parenteral and Ophthalmic Drug Products
