Turning up the Compen-DIAL: Rapid Test Methods for Cell & Gene Therapies



WEBINAR

Two of the biggest challenges with applying traditional quality control (QC) test methods to cell and gene therapies, is time to results, due to short shelf-life, and availability of sufficient sample, due to small production volumes. So how can we overcome these challenges while still meeting regulatory expectations? In this webinar, we will discuss and review suitable methods for rapid testing of short-life cell and gene therapies that may also help conserve limited production material. We will look at the benefits, limitations, and regulatory expectations for various QC needs, including current and future rapid methods for sterility, mycoplasma, and replication-competent virus.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why the shelf life of a cell or gene therapy product may impact your QC testing strategy
  • Current regulatory expectations surrounding rapid methods for sterility, mycoplasma, and replication-competent virus
  • Potential impacts of pursuing a non-optimal QC testing strategy
