Antibody Development and Production is regarded as the most comprehensive event that delivers industry best practices across the spectrum of upstream and downstream processing. By attending, you will learn how companies are developing the latest molecular assessment approaches to optimize manufacturability and product quality and how they are applying smarter and faster tools for rapid process development. Industry leaders will assess the state of the industry and offer solutions to overcome the current capacity issues as they work towards their goals of lean manufacturing and facility optimization.

Featured presentations will demonstrate how to successfully integrate upstream and downstream processing and the integral role played by analytics as they develop the next generation of commercial processes. We will explore the impact of Quality by Design (QbD) and Design of Experiments (DOE) on process development as companies share results of the mock filings that have recently concluded with feedback from FDA and EMEA. In addition, you will learn the impact of QbD on existing products as companies expand the scope of process monitoring and control.

Past Attendees Say. . .

“The quality of the presenters and the data were exceptional, and few other events give attendees the opportunity to hear from so many well-known figures in the bioprocessing industry.”

“The break-out discussion groups were engaging and interactive.”

“This conference had an atmosphere of open interaction from the questions being asked in the very first session.”
