Extractables & Leachables Forum

Driving Excellence in E&L Studies

02 Sep - 03 Sep 2020   |   Virtual Course

Course Overview

The studies of Extractables and Leachables (E&L) substances are extremely important for the protection of patients and for regulatory documentation destined for authorities such as the FDA and EMA. When making Parenteral Drug Products, pharmaceutical companies need to further investigate the materials that will be in contact with the drug product, either during manufacturing, intermediate storage, storage in its final packaging, or during the delivery of the drug to the patient. While historically, the potential safety issues were the main driver in these kinds of investigations, recently, also quality issues – i.e. for biopharmaceuticals – have become an additional concern.

To address these issues, we at Informa Markets in India are pleased to announce our premier edition of ‘Extractables & Leachables Forum’ scheduled on 2nd & 3rd September 2020.
