Beijing, CHINA


Smithers Rapra are excited to confirm the renowned and hugely popular Extractables and Leachables conference series will be extending into China this September.

Taking place on 11-12 September 2018 at the Mercure Beijing Downtown in Beijing, Extractables & Leachables China will bring together attendees from across the supply chain for two days of learning and networking.

The conference will focus on the Chinese regulatory landscape, testing methods and standards, advances in scientific practices, the latest technological developments, and will also include a half-day training session on an introduction to extractables and leachables.

E&L China is unmissable for anyone working within pharmaceutical or medical device testing in China, or for those looking to enter this evolving market.



At this September's much anticipated Extractables and Leachables China, experts from Smithers Rapra will provide an interactive training session on 'An Introduction to E&L'.

The session, taking place before the main conference on Tuesday 11 September, will provide attendees with in-depth training and insights on the major concepts and practices associated with extractables and leachables testing. 

Designed for new entrants and those seeking a knowledge refresh, the training will allow attendees to gain a deeper understanding of the discipline, whilst also enabling them to speak directly to industry experts.

Access to the training morning is included in all conference tickets, so you'll gain additional learnings at no extra cost!
