In 2019, Nelson Labs Europe announced the appointment of Dr. Dennis Jenke, Chief Executive Scientist of Triad Scientific Solutions LLC, as a Nelson Labs Europe Principal Consultant, supporting its world class extractable & leachable franchise.  This ongoing appointment continues to be a substantial aspect of Nelson Lab’s world class extractables and leachables service which is based on the highest level of technical expertise and good science and is designed to assist pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical device and related organizations by providing essential support for their product qualification, registration and maintenance efforts.

The support that Dr. Jenke provides to Nelson Labs Europe in his continuing role as a Principal Consultant includes developing and optimizing study protocols for a wide range of applications, providing technical guidance to Nelson Labs Europe’s R&D programs and supporting Nelson Labs’s clients when further expert advice or consultancy is desirable.


This collaboration enables Nelson Labs Europe’s mission to further develop its comprehensive, outstanding and world class service in extractable & leachables testing, supporting the pharmaceutical and medical device industries in their efforts to qualify, register and support their primary packaging, manufacturing systems or medical devices from an extractable/leachable or material characterization perspective.


Dennis Jenke: “Independently, the names Dennis Jenke and Nelson Labs Europe are synonymous with a passion for, a dedication to, and the pursuit of good science, which, when practically applied, facilitates the development, qualification, registration and commercial support of pharmaceutical packaging, manufacturing components and systems and medical devices.   This close collaboration between Nelson Labs Europe and myself provides us with the opportunity to leverage our similar and different experiences, expertise and skill sets in establishing procedures, protocols, processes and practices that further serve our clients and our industry.  It is both a personal privilege and a honor to be so closely associated with an organization whose well-known and long-standing dedication to good science has had such a positive impact on both its clients in particular and on the field of extractables and leachables in general.”



Piet Christiaens, Scientific Director, Nelson Labs Europe: “I am absolutely thrilled about this ongoing collaboration with Dennis and remaining able to tap into his world-class expertise on extractables & leachables, and this on a daily basis. This intense collaboration continues to spark innovation through the additional support Dennis gives in steering Nelson Labs’s R&D programmes. Without any doubt, this will ultimately result in a new facet of unparalleled services, to address the ever-increasing challenges the pharmaceutical industry is facing today in container/closure, manufacturing systems and medical device qualifications.”
