Date:9/13/2017

AMRI, a global contract research, development and manufacturing organization working with the life sciences industry to improve patient outcomes and quality of life for more than 25 years, today announced that John Iannone, director of extractables/leachables & impurities, has been named a US expert to the International Standards Organization/Technical Committee 194: Biological and Clinical Evaluation of Medical Devices.

Through this appointment, Mr. Iannone will have the opportunity to participate in global ISO committee meetings and specifically discussions surrounding the changing regulatory landscape of ISO 10993, a set of international standards for evaluating the biocompatibility of medical devices. In addition, as a nominated subject matter expert, Mr. Iannone will further influence product safety guidelines and regulations. Only persons nominated as subject matter experts and accepted by the chairs of the respective working groups are allowed to attend in the international annual meeting.

"More than ever before, it is critical to understand the complex science of extractable and leachable assessments, as the chemistry involved has significant effect on the safety of medicines and medical devices," said Mr. Iannone. "With that knowledge, we can develop and implement expert solutions which adequately demonstrate safety and suitability of the many innovative products currently being introduced in the market. Through leveraging the multidisciplinary expertise of AMRI's technical team, I will continue to propose solutions to the guidelines in development and to our customers, current and future. This is an exciting time and am thrilled to be a contributor to the industry overall."

John Iannone serves as director of extractables/leachables (E&L) and impurities at AMRI. As a current candidate for board certification by the American Board of Toxicology (DABT), he ensures a strong tie to safety considerations in the AMRI E&L team. His areas of expertise include material qualification and biocompatibility, extractables and leachables, chemical characterization, and attainment of biological and/or toxicological risk assessments for medical devices, pharmaceutical container systems, bioprocessing systems, and combination products. John has given numerous technical presentations and has led several workshops on extractable and leachable considerations, biocompatibility, microbiology, toxicology, and regulatory testing requirements. He also participates in the development of both industry groups’ recommendations and regulatory guidelines through expert panel (USP) membership, global technical committees, and both industry and regulatory agency collaborations. In addition to leading the AMRI E&L lab operations, his responsibilities also include providing technical consultation to clients regarding unique testing strategies in an effort for them to meet global regulatory expectations. Prior to joining AMRI, Mr. Iannone served as a technical specialist at Toxikon. He has bachelor’s of bioengineering and biomedical engineering from Boston University.

Mr. Iannone will be speaking this evening on ISO 10993 standards as well as other topics relevant to extractables & leachables at Pharma Talk 2017 Dinner & Learn Series, occurring from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey. In addition, AMRI will be available at tabletop 133 during Contract Pharma 2017, which occurs September 14-15 in New Brunswick.
