Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual
Biotherapeutics Analytical Summit
Part Two: Characterization and Compliance
Focusing on ADCs, Impurities, Host Cell Proteins, Reference Standards, CQAs and Regulatory Concerns
March 10-11, 2015 | Hyatt Regency | Harbor Court | Baltimore, MD
Characterization and Compliance focuses on application of advanced analytical technologies throughout development. It presents characterization of the complex heterogeneity of ADCs by means of sophisticated technologies such as new inductively-coupled plasma mass-spec ICP-MS, capillary electrophoresis and protein mass spectrometry. A range of technologies for aggregate characterization will also be presented together with an FDA study on pathways that lead to aggregation. Because host cell proteins have become very hot, we have included a presentation (and short course) on the most advanced technologies for their characterization. Practical case studies on control and monitoring of Critical Quality Attributes and on phase-specific characterization will be presented.Reference standards for product quality and manufacturing consistency will be presented by the FDA and backed up with examples from NIST and a case study from the industry. Regulatory issues are further addressed by regulatory and FDA on concerns such as reference standards, product comparability and the new topic of mycoplasma detection.
