AGR Announces New Pharmaceutical Webinar

We are pleased to announce we will be conducting our third live webinar, “Spotlight on: Pharmaceutical Glass Flaws” on October 20.  AGR has been conducting live in-person training to the glass manufacturing industry and glass container fillers worldwide for over 60 years.  In response to the COVID pandemic and heightened health safety considerations, AGR has constructed a dedicated studio for the production of live webinars and self- paced e-seminar modules.  

This new, 2.5-hour training webinar covers the visual identification of flaws in pharmaceutical glass containers, specifically flaws in molded and tubing pharmaceutical glass containers such as vials and syringes. For each flaw, attendees will learn its identifying characteristics, its source, and the effect that the flaw has on container performance. Hundreds of photographs will provide attendees representative examples of each flaw. The webinar also includes a discussion of flaw severity categories (critical, major, minor or cosmetic) and a brief overview of pharma glass manufacturing processes.  Trainees will also be provided with crucial information for corrective actions.

Topics to be Covered:

  • Identification, effects, and sources for over 40 flaws
  •  Lexicon of flaws in pharma glass
  • Overview of PDA TR 43
  • Flaw severity classification
  • Introduction to vial manufacturing processes
  • Covers both tubing and molded containers

The webinar is one 2.5-hour live presentation (with an intermission) and will be conducted by Dr. Brandon Aldinger. The webinar will be recorded and attendees can replay the presentation at their convenience.  The live broadcast will be conducted at 9:00 EDT/13:00 GMT/15:00 CET.  The cost is $265 per person.
