This year, much of the conversation both on the show floor and in the conference sessions has focused on how technical
progress in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device development and
manufacturing can meet the changing needs
in the life sciences sector.
Factors such as serialization, the growing
trend toward biosimilars, drug-pricing pressures, the influx of generic medicines, and
pressure to contain R&D costs have been
on many of the thousands of minds roaming
Javits over the last two days.
As the final day of INTERPHEX begins, it’s
a great opportunity to further explore how
new and evolving technologies present today
can help shape business plans to tackle the
complicated issues and implement cost-saving
solutions in the short- and long-term.
Today also is a great day to take one more
look at those systems and devices that were
most intriguing at the exhibit hall booths, give
another handshake to the colleagues and
clients in attendance, and catch the final rounds of conference and technical sessions on topics mentioned above and
other key industry concerns.
Among those discussions are the final two of this year’s
interactive INTERPHEX Live! sessions produced by
Pharmaceutical Processing in conjunction with INTERPHEX
and located just outside the exhibit hall near the show
