  4. 4. HALF-DAY PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP Tuesday 19th July 2011Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore 1.30pm – 5.00pm Selection and Processing of Packaging Components In association with West Pharmaceutical Services Singapore Overview of Workshop The packaging components that come in direct contact with the drug in the PFS is of paramount importance. This is because it may interact with the pharmaceutical preparation be it the drug or excipients. The fitness of the components with the barrel would also affect the sterility and integrity of the final system. In selecting the packaging components, the suitability of formulation to ensure its compatibility with the drug must be evaluated. Consideration over the processing of the components, in ensuring its cleanliness must also be made. For a pharmaceutical manufacturer, the cost consideration must be taken in selecting off the shelf components that have been washed and processed to make your unique requirements. For those where the drug is expensive where rejections due to a defective component is unacceptable, development of a mutually agreeable specification must be considered. This workshop deals with the subjects from the perspective of a pharmaceutical manufacturer.
