Micro packaging vials

Late last year, the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (www.ispe.org) introduced a new packaging Community of Practice (COP). The COP held its first meeting at ISPE's annual meeting in Orlando, FL. Chairing the packaging COP's Steering Committee is Linda McBride, senior director of regulatory affairs for Leawood, KS-based medical firm Enturia, Inc. (formerly Medi-Flex). McBride is a former columnist for Healthcare Packaging.
