Welcome to ELSIE

The Extractables and Leachables Safety Information Exchange (ELSIE) Consortium is comprised of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies.

ELSIE Risk Management Webinar Series

This webinar was the second in a series focused on the ELSIE leachables white papers, and engaged participants in the risk management framework through a case study.  The case study considered a component material change, examining material selection considerations, risk assessment, testing approaches, and toxicological considerations throughout the process. Visit our Events page for links to the slides and recording from the webinar.
