2-Day Seminar: Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI) Technology (London, United Kingdom - February 20-21, 2019)

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Metered Dose Inhaler (MDI) Technology" conference has been added to's offering.

A comprehensive overview of MDIs including development, manufacture, regulation and market potential

This interactive seminar will provide a comprehensive overview of metered-dose inhaler technology. It will clarify the therapeutic targets and look at delivery technologies. Participants will gain a valuable insight into market potential and receive detailed information on the manufacturing process, quality and inspection requirements and the regulatory pathways to follow.

This seminar will be beneficial for those new to the area and those who require a refresher on the opportunities with this technology. The seminar format will include practical workshops and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion with the trainer who has significant experience in this field.
