Why Devices are Failing in Oncology Drug Delivery ApplicationsAvailable on Demand
Date: January 14, 2016 – January 14, 2017
About this webinar
One of pharma’s fastest-growing and highest-profile segments is facing a crisis. Some oncology drugs have demonstrated chemical incompatibility with traditional polymers used in delivery devices. Consequently, the ISMP and FDA have issued warnings for health professionals to stop using closed system drug-transfer devices made with polycarbonate or ABS plastics, which can leak, break, or dissolve following exposure to oncology drugs. Recent tests compare the chemical resistance of these polymers with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester.
