When drug meets device: How to assess compatibility?

February 13, 2020

The frequent contact of patients with combined products, a concept that describes the joint use of drugs and devices, makes the assessment of the compatibility of a device with certain drugs a very important topic. In this webinar, Dr. Lise Vanderkelen and Dr. Ruth Verplaetse talk passionately about the necessity of a good relationship between the drug and the device for the benefit of the patient. Determining the compatibility of combined products includes many different aspects. All these aspects need to be in balance to establish a healthy relationship within the combined products and to avoid any danger that may harm a patient. This webinar will particularly focus on drug stability, chemical compatibility and biocompatibility.

During this 40-minute webinar, you will learn about:

The regulations & practical applications of combined products
The different aspects of drug-device compatibility assessment in general
The theoretic procedures behind the determination of drug stability, chemical compatibility and biocompatibility
