Excerpt of Chair Letter:

“Dear Colleagues,

As chairs of the 5th annual Pre-Filled Syringes West Coast conference, we cordially invite you to attend this anticipated event taking place on the 15th-16th of June 2020 in San Diego.

The 2020 event will bring together expertise from individuals in multiple disciplines in the field of Pre-Filled Syringes and Injectable Drug Devices. The two-day, packed agenda will offer a series of presentations, through which you will gain insight into current industry trends, innovations in device design and technology, human factors engineering, regulatory insights, process development and design controls for combination product development.

Innovations in device technology, such as smart devices, micro-array patches and needle free delivery, are leading the way in device design and platform approaches for combination products and pre-filled syringes are being used more and more in industry. Patient centricity is still a key driver of the combination product industry and with updates to regulatory guidance, it is essential to keep on top of the newest changes in device regulation. Benchmarking against the latest research and development in industry is critical in minimizing risk and ensuring the best possible product for end users…”
