Conference: Alternative and Rapid Microbiological Methods
22/23 November 2022
This conference will review the current knowledge about developments in modern microbiological methods and mycoplasma detection strategies for quality control in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
This one-day conference provides the opportunity to discuss the recent advances in the area of the newest technological developments as well as practical aspects and concerns of meeting the regulatory requirements. State-of-the-art presentations from authority speakers, as well as industrial and academic experts in the field of microbiological detection and identification and mycoplasmology with particular focus on the current methodologies their implementation and validation will provide an in-depth overview.
The scientific progress in the field of cellular and molecular biotechnology led to a fast development of biopharmaceuticals, tissue engineered applications and advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs). Against this background, the safety of such new technologies, products and applications becomes more importance. One important topic in the focus of risk assessment and safety is the contamination with microorganisms and mycoplasmas and their detection, prevention and control.
This conference is of interest to professionals from
- Biotechnological & Biopharmaceutical Companies
- Contract Service Laboratories
