2018 PDA Glass Quality Conference
Washington, DC, USA
Since a spike in recalls and warning letters related to glass packaging occurred early this decade, there have been many developments and improvements in glass quality, including new formulations and processes for pharmaceutical packaging. This conference will explore the important research being conducted and the advancements offered to industry. Included are presentations on better analytical test methods, improved process controls, glass handling practices, and inspection techniques. We will delve into the improved glasses and new formulations, glass strengthening techniques and special coatings that are being developed and offered. The conference will explore the issues of glass-drug interactions; glass breakage and glass particulate. The challenges of regulatory acceptance of innovation will be addressed along with revising and modernizing pharmacopeias.
