Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Detection and Characterization of Particulates and Impurities

Hot Topics, Emerging Contaminants and Impurities, Case Studies, and New Technologies

January 21-22, 2020

Part of the Analytics & Impurities pipeline

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual Detection and Characterization of Particulates and Impurities conference will bring together leading researchers to discuss hot topics, emerging contaminants and impurities and new characterization tools for impurities that may come from various sources and stages of product development. Through new presentations, informative panel discussions, high-level poster presentations, and interactive breakout discussions, top scientists will share new insights into characterization and control of various impurities. Some of the hot topics for this year will be new and novel technologies for virus and pathogen detection, host cell proteins, lipases and enzymatic degradation, aggregations, leachable, chemistry and manufacturing controls (CMC) strategy for regulatory filings.
