Agenda is available now.

This workshop will provide an overview of two important viral safety barriers – testing and viral clearance approaches for recombinant products and vaccines. Typically applied testing methods and product type specific testing strategies will be presented briefly. The benefits and the downsides will be discussed based on the experiences gained over a period of more than 20 years.

In addition, the frequently discussed NGS technology and its potential application in this field will be explained in a simple way. In the second part, important aspects of viral clearance studies like pre-testing, virus assays, viral loads, etc., will be presented and critically reviewed. An overview of the viral removal or inactivation capacity of typically applied process steps will also be given and discussed using case studies. The workshop will consider current best practice including the current regulatory requirements.

More information coming soon.
