12may11:30 am1:00 pmHost Cell Protein Assays- New Tools for an Ongoing Challenge


Event Details


A critical task in biologics manufacturing is the control of process-related impurities such as host cell proteins (HCPs), which co-purify with the drug substance and are known for adverse effects such as immunogenicity. For decades, the method of choice to detect HCPs has been an immunoassay based on polyclonal antisera raised against a population of HCPs. There are some risk factors associated with this approach, and the final performance of the assay depends on the preparation work and materials used at the start.

This seminar will highlight critical parameters throughout the assay development process and introduce new technology which provides targeted enhancement of coverage and maximizes the assay performance.
