    Delivery systems are being increasingly used for parenteral products as a way to add value in terms of convenience, patient compliance as well as product differentiation. These systems, oftentimes encompassing the primary container/closure system, must be considered an integral part of parenteral products and not an afterthought. The choice of the system and the assessment of its suitability, functionality and manufacturability are key aspects of the development process. A range of technologies are available for selection, depending on the user requirements.

    This session will cover container/closure requirements in general, address the requirements for qualification of such systems including compatibility, integrity testing (in the context of the new USP requirements) and manufacturability. The session will cover the major systems with a focus on pre-filled syringes which are by far the most common system being used after vials. Beyond the primary packaging, the secondary packaging may also have functional requirements in specific application. Examples of such systems will be discussed.
