Piotr joined West in January 2017 and holds a position as a Senior Specialist, Product Management Daikyo Portfolio. He’s supporting mutual West/Daikyo Seiko efforts to industrialize packaging components that meet industry’s demand for higher performance and quality products. In his previous position, he worked for Zeon Corp. as Technical Sales Representative in the area of engineered polymers with focus on sealing applications.
He holds a Dipl.-Chem. degree from University of Hannover. In his scientific career as a Research Fellow at the German Institute for Rubber Technology in Hannover he developed nanoengineered magneto-active polymers for industrial applications. Part of this project included 8-months collaboration with Prof. Matyjaszewski at his Polymer Group at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (PA, USA).
This presentation will provide a contribution to the topic of particles, which is one of today’s major challenges in the pharmaceutical industry. Goal of significantly reduced particulate contamination is achieved via:
The discussion will include various studies demonstrating vision inspection of major/critical dimensions leading to reduced variability; particle characterization of various lots; and effect of shipment on particle loads within the package. Additionally, the overall improvement and in-process control will be quantified and visualized on examples of enhanced CpK values of the elastomeric components.View Details
