Medical device design is a key consideration when commercializing new pharmaceutical molecules and facilitate patent adherence for better health outcomes. Some devices even consider eliminating glass as a pharmaceutical primary container for parenteral solutions in the pursuit of a novel design. This talk will review considerations and challenges of selecting polymers for this application with some specific examples to illustrate useful technical information suppliers can provide about their polymer materials and systems.
