Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Optimizing Bioassays for Biologics

Case Studies Demonstrating Successful Bioassay Development

May 7-8, 2020


New therapeutic modalities, including cell & gene therapies, immunotherapies, and antibody therapies, continue to push the limit on bioassay development and implementation. New formats present challenges including determining what reference materials to use and how to validate the assay. Standards are advancing, but questions remain around the regulatory framework for assays. At the 6th Annual Optimizing Bioassays for Biologics, bioassay experts will address the top challenges in bioassay design including lifecycle management, validation, assay bridging, standards, and developing reference materials. Case studies and best practices for handling the most common issues in biological assay design will be presented with a focus on cell & gene therapies.
