Exclusive interview from conference speaker Torsten Kneuss released ahead of SMi’s Pre-Filled Syringes and Injectable Drug Devices Conference
SMi’s Pre-Filled Syringes and Injectable Drug Devices conference, taking place on 15th-16th January 2020 in London, will bring together pharmaceutical experts, clinical researchers and manufacturers in the pre-filled syringes industry to examine innovations in device engineering and components, enhancement of human factors, and optimizing packaging and containment.
As Europe’s leading pre-filled syringe conference, the two-day event is an essential diary date for those in the industry.
During the run-up to the 2020 conference, SMi interviewed industry expert and conference speaker Torsten Kneuss, quality assurance manager combination products of Bayer. Here is a snapshot of what was discussed:
What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the pre-filled syringes field at the moment?
“There is not one big challenge, but the evolving regulatory landscape which partly also impacts the legacy products leads to additional efforts. While there is a lot of unclarity, e.g. related to the Notified Body Opinion, we have to be prepared.”
What current hot topic will you be addressing in your presentation and what would you say makes it relevant to 2019?
“My hot topics are based on two changes which will become relevant now. The first change is the increased oversight by Notified Bodies to Pre-Filled Syringes as these are single integral products for which Article 117 of the European Medical Device Regulation applies. The second change is the upcoming revision of the ISO 14971, the relevant standard for Risk Management for Medical Devices and Combination Products. Both topics impact Pre-filled syringes in development and from a post-market perspective.”
How would you like to see the PFS Europe market developing in the future and where do you think the biggest growth area will be in 2020?
“I think the market will have a growth by around 10% in sales per year over the next 5 years. I don’t see a very specific growth area, as both plastic and glass-based syringes will have similar growth.”
