Advancements in GMP QC Testing: A Comprehensive Guide to Cell-Based Assays

Life Sciences, Drug Discovery & Development, Laboratory Technology,
  • Wednesday, June 14, 2023

In light of the FDA’s removal of animal testing requirements and recent advancements in technology, cell-based assays for QC testing have shown invaluable merit when demonstrating efficacy and potency. In this webinar, attendees will learn about the latest cell-based technology as well as some important aspects of GMP requirements for bioassays. You’ll gain insights into how these cell-based assays can support the drug development continuum, including GMP QC testing.

Learn about customization possibilities and how cell-based assays can be tailored to specific needs. Discover how they are also readily available and have a high-throughput capacity, making them ideal for large-scale drug screening. In addition, cell-based assays provide a more accurate representation of how a drug will interact with human receptors and reduce variability and cost than animal testing.

This webinar provides an exclusive opportunity to deepen your understanding of cell-based assays, their potential, and their pivotal role in modern therapeutic development. Harness this knowledge to optimize drug development processes, accelerate therapeutic advancements, and contribute to a more promising future in healthcare. Don’t miss this chance to stay at the forefront of your field – register now.
