What clinical teams should know about the benefits of pre-filled syringes and auto-injector pens

Sponsored by: Fisher Clinical Services

Focused on:

  • Drug Delivery

Date: 28 March


Time: 3PM London/11AM New York

More drugs are being delivered by injection than ever before, fuelled by a steady stream of biological products emerging from research pipelines. Other factors contributing to the increase of drug delivery by injection include the global rise in chronic diseases, the need for frequent dosing to control many such diseases, and a growing trend toward self-administration of medical treatments by patients. While most large-molecule drugs must be delivered via injection, biopharma companies have choices about which form of injection to use, many of which offer distinct advantages.

In this webinar we will review and discuss the various industry trends including:

  • Expanded use and benefits of prefilled syringes
  • Advantages of self-administration via auto-injector devices
  • The value of an end-to-end streamlined solution, that includes:
  • - Drug development

    - Fill/finish of cartridges & syringes

    - Full device assembly

    - Packaging, labelling, distribution & beyond

  • Eye on the future: Examining market trends
