3rd Annual Elemental and Genotoxic Impurities Workshop

1st & 2nd August, 2019

The Park, Hyderabad

Three Industry Leaders


With over 75 recalls related to ARB medication, the FDA also has started prioritizing approvals to
overcome the shortage. Impurities though always important have been on the forefront since the past


Treffen Media which closely analyses pharma developments was among the first to try and offer a resolution to this problem. In its third edition, the “Elemental and Genotoxic Impurities Workshop series” will be focusing on the updates since the last year and the developments in impurity related challenges and breakthroughs.

The workshop will look at the causes of contamination, the early detection of impurities and the control
of impurities within acceptable limits.

With leading global experts, the workshop aims at addressing what went wrong and how to avoid it in
the future.
