IBC’s Antibody Development and Production conference offers the latest technical and scientific advances in bioprocessing to help companies of all sizes improve speed, quality, and cost in developing and producing antibodies. Exclusive case studies deliver the latest data together with strategic discussion forums that allow the industry’s leading scientists, engineers, and executives to collaborate and find solutions to their most pressing challenges.

Gain from companies sharing “lessons learned” from their own experiences developing and optimizing processes and production of antibody-based therapeutics:

  • Maximizing recoverable titer without major facility changes

  • Using “-omics” technologies to improve predictability, medium optimization, and product quality

  • Analyzing multiple variables for scale-up, technology transfer, and comparability assessments

  • Examining the full CHO K1 genome sequence and its properties

  • Developing biosimilar monoclonal antibodies(MAbs) using QbD

  • Producing next-generation antibodies and novel molecules.
