A pillar of building a successful biologic is viral safety testing. Well-established test methods and regimes are laid down in pharmacopoeias and guidelines, serving as the gold standard. However, there are a variety of factors that can have an impact on these traditional testing practices, including:

  • Advances in analytical technologies
  • Animal welfare
  • Changes of manufacturing processes
  • Development of new product types

Join us for an overview of the current trends in viral safety testing and how it could affect your biologic’s development. We’ll review the current routine procedures for viral safety testing and introduce technologies and practices that might be used more often in the future to improve or replace the existing ones.
