Next up is our "Spotlight On: Pharmaceutical Glass Flaws" Webinar

A new, two-hour training webinar on flaws in both molded and tubing pharmaceutical glass containers, such as vials and syringes. For each flaw, attendees will learn its identifying characteristics, its origin, and the effect that the flaw has on container performance. The webinar also includes a discussion of flaw severity classes and a brief overview of pharma glass manufacturing processes.

We will be conducting this live webinar early in Q4.  Details will be available soon.  Contact Us if you have any questions.
