Impact Of Emerging Bioassay Technologies Presented At WCBP Conference

The Impact of Emerging Bioassay Technologies Presented by Catalent Expert at WCBP Conference

Somerset, NJ, January 29, 2013 – Michael Sadick, PhD, Senior Manager, Biopharmaceutical Characterization, Catalent Pharma Solutions, is to present at the WCBP conference in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, January 29, 2013.
Dr. Sadick’s presentation, entitled “Establishment and Optimization of a Potency Assay for an Effector mAb Using "ADCC Reporter Bioassay,” will detail the adaptation of the Promega ADCC NFAT-Luciferase system to the real world case of a client effector mAb therapeutic that required a more quantitative, robust accurate and rapid potency assay than could be provided using a classical lytic ADCC assay. The strategies utilized to optimize the method will be explained, as will be the potential advantages of using this assay system.
The WCBP conference is the pre-eminent conference addressing the analytical development/regulatory control interface for biotechnology derived health intervention products. The goal of this Symposium series is to provide a forum for discussing the latest analytical methods and their practical application to biotechnology pharmaceuticals and other health related products. Both state-of-the-art innovations as well as conventional technologies addressing research and routine testing applications will be covered.
