Get Proactive With Your Stability Program



WEBINAR

To ensure product safety and enhance understanding of product attributes, careful study of the effects of environmental conditions on your mAb is required throughout all phases of development.

Long- and short-term stability studies are a critical part of a product development program and are required by ICH guidelines. However, stability programs require extensive preparation and without this proper planning, you may face additional hurdles.

Join our experts, Drs. Greg Pirozzi and Pamela Hamill, in a panel-style discussion to learn how to proactively plan and execute a testing program to assess changes in stability that may impact product purity, potency, and safety.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Key considerations on when and how to effectively plan your stability testing program
  • How to ensure the right selection of assays for your testing package
  • How forced degradation/accelerated studies may fit into your overall plan, and evaluating repeat stability requirements after CMC changes
