Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual

Detection, Characterization and Control of Impurities in Biologics

August 18-19, 2021

 

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 4th Annual Detection, Characterization and Control of Impurities in Biologics conference will bring together leading scientists from biopharmaceutical industry, academia and government to discuss hot topics, case studies, new technologies, and strategies to carry out risk assessment and mitigation for impurities arising from products, excipients, processes and packaging. Through new presentations, informative panel discussions, high-level poster presentations, and interactive discussions, top scientists will share new insights into detection, characterization and control of various impurities. Some of the hot topics for this year will be new and novel technologies contaminant detection, host cell proteins, lipases and enzymatic degradation, particles and aggregates, leachable, chemistry and manufacturing controls (CMC) strategy for regulatory filings.

 

Coverage will include, but is not limited to:

 

  • Regulatory requirements and guidance impurities in novel biotherapeutics, vaccines
  • Analytical tools
  • Biophysical and imaging based methods, advanced mass spectrometry, multiple attribute analysis for identification and impurity profile
  • Virus and pathogens
  • Impurities in vaccines
  • Novel tools and strategies for detection, characterization and control of process-related impurities
    • Host cell proteins, host cell DNA,
    • Inducers, antibiotics, media components
    • Reagents or metals impurities
    • Leachables
    • Process analytical tools
  • New tools and strategies for detection, characterization and control of product-related impurities
    • Molecular variants, precursors, degradation products, aggregates, high molecular weight species (HMW), deamidation products, clipped species
    • Detergents and surfactants characterization
    • Removal/control of lipase or other enzymatic impurities which impact surfactant stability/degradation
    • Formulation components, raw materials control and excipient related impurities
