On demand webinar Analytical Challenges for Gene Therapy

The Temperature (51)

Watch our on demand webinar and download the presentation from November 3rd, where we together with BioPharma Asia and Biogen gave guidance and our view on possible solutions for "Analytical Challenges for Gene Therapy", and how can you overcome these.

One of the biggest challenges for AAV gene therapy products is establishing an appropriate analytical strategy to support product manufacture, release, stability, comparability and characterization at different stages of development. This presentation will highlight some of the existing analytical challenges and provide guidance on development of an appropriate strategy to help overcome these.

What you can expect from the webinar and presentation

  • Highlights of some of our clients’ AAV production-related questions and challenges
  • Possible solutions to address Analytical Challenges for Gene Therapy with Electron Microscopy and Intelligent Software
