Rx for pharma packaging

Article-Rx for pharma packaging

Pharmaceutical packaging professionals can't afford to waste time sorting through products and technologies that don't meet the industry's stringent requirements. That's why INTERPHEX brings together state-of-the-art, industry-specific solutions to make packaging lines more productive and to safeguard product efficacy. Exhibits and conference sessions will address extended shelf life, counterfeiting, patient compliance and radio frequency identification (RFID) in the supply chain.

New this year to the conference program is a Supply Chain and Security track. Also on the agenda is a new RFID Master Class, presented by the International RFID Business collaboration with RFID Technical Institute. The conference also includes several sessions specifically addressing packaging. "The Future of Consumer Packaging for Pharmaceuticals" will be presented by Lynn Dornblaser, director of consulting, Mintel, Inc. "Innovation in Pharmaceutical Packaging: Reassessing the Role That Packaging Can Play in Health Care Management" will be presented by Nina Goodrich, director, Innovation, Alcan Packaging. Also, "Total Cost of Ownership of Pharmaceutical Blister Packaging" will be discussed by Angela Roggenhofer, market development manager, Honeywell Specialty Films.
