London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 January 2014
EU member states passing national legislation for the prevention of needle stick injuries right now. This comes on the back of EU Council Directive (2010/32/EU), which took effect in May. This legal driver for the adoption of safe alternatives to traditional injections makes developing an effective, compliant pre- filled syringe or injection device ever more important. To help you make the right decisions in your product development, SMi are holding the 6th Annual Pre-Filled Syringes conference and exhibition this January.
