Medtech & Pharma Platform 2014


LRQA is pleased to be taking part in the first international Medtech & Pharma Platform entitled "Innovation at the Interface" from 30-31 October in Zurich.

Historically, there has been a clear divide between companies in the Medical and Pharmaceutical industries, although, in recent years we have seen a trend towards the combined development of drugs, devices and in vitro diagnostics (IVD's) that encompass characteristics of both drugs and devices/IVD's. Technological developments have found their way into medical practice and are still warranted to meet further medical needs, whilst forthcoming revisions of the legislation are going to influence the development and evaluation of innovative devices, IVD's and combination products.

This event brings together professionals from the Medtech and Pharma industries, as well as regulators, who will share experiences in the development of innovative health care products. The event can help bridge gaps in understanding and interdependencies of drug, device, IVD components and combination products, plus it will help you to understand regulatory affairs and market access aspects affecting development of innovative products and much more . . .

The two-day conference includes six thematic sessions with 18 highly acclaimed speakers, a networking dinner, a table top exhibition and several individual discussions.

At the conference, LRQA's Industry experts Nick Baker, Technical Manager for IVD and Theresa Jeary, Technical Manager for MDD will be presenting or chairing on the following topics:

  • 30 October 2014 at 15.30 - Theresa will be Chairing 'Approval and conduct of clinical studies'

  • 31 October 2014 at 10.00 - Nick will be presenting on 'The conformity assessment requirements under the proposed IVD regulation for companion diagnostics'
