Pre-Filled Syringes 2019


On 28 & 29 November 2019, Tokyo (Japan) will host the BioTech Pharma Summit: Pre-Filled Syringes 2019 conference. This year’s event will bring together all specialists in medical devices and pharmaceuticals to share experience about new technology trends, design considerations, technical developments of quality and materials in pre-filled syringes.

Join us at the Pre-Filled Syringes 2019 to share and benchmark against best practices to ensure optimal development in all aspects of pre-filled syringe production.

The global market for pre-filled syringes will grow substantially over the next five years to reach sales of $6.6 billion, according to a new report from Smithers Rapra. With sales of $6.9 billion expected by 2018, syringes of this kind cater to an expanding patient demographic: people with chronic conditions who need, or prefer, to administer their own medicines. The race is on to improve the associated technologies, ensuring that the new generation of prefilled syringes can adequately accommodate tomorrow’s drugs.

The conference will provide a comprehensive overview for market participants to overcome common industry hurdles and gain knowledge in key areas surrounding chemical compatibility, E&L; needle safety; human factors and home-based administration and compliance.


The BioTech Pharma Summit: Pre-Filled Syringes 2019 will explore the advancements in regulatory guidelines, product development, manufacturing processes, risk mitigation, portfolio management and answer some infinite industry questions such as; how the industry is responding to disruptive technology, connectivity, speed to market, and next generation syringes.
