extractables and leachables

Join the first interactive Extractables, Leachables & Food Contact Materials Testing Forum and enter the discussion with some of the brightest minds in E&L studies.

Migration of chemicals and potential contaminants from packaging materials is a major concern for human health. Manufacturers and suppliers to the food and pharmaceutical industries as well as for the regulatory bodies who are responsible for consumer safety and health.

Waters E&L forum offers a unique opportunity for leading E&L experts and decision makers to discuss the latest updates on regulations in the field of food, pharma, biopharma and medical devices, targeted and non-targeted screening workflow, chromatographic techniques, extraction methods and analytical standards & reagents, and much more.

Attendees network, build beneficial relationships, and hear panels featuring diverse industry perspectives on issues facing the E&L industry in both the US and globally.

Register now and share knowledge and challenges with peers and E&L experts.
