Cell Based Bioassays

When: June 4, 2019 11:00am CST


Cell- based bioassays are critical to determining the potency of biopharmaceuticals. The ICHQ6 B defines potency as “The measure of the biological activity using a quantitative biological assay based on the attribute of the product which is linked to the relevant biological properties.”  Potency directly reflects the subtleties of the tertiary and quaternary structure of a biopharmaceutical in a manner in which physicochemical methods are incapable. But cell bioassays are also challenging as they involve use of  living systems and their inherent variability. This webinar will discuss the

  • Types of Bioassays
  • Challenges
  • Laboratory design
