flanders.bio - Roche Diagnostics Partner Day 2018: ’Towards high-quality Cell Therapy’

flanders.bio and Roche Diagnostics are happy to welcome you on their third joint Partner Day. This year’s edition will target the course “Towards high-quality Cell Therapy”.

The meeting will introduce the Belgian ecosystem on cell therapy and take you through the different aspects and critical steps within the development and manufacturing of cell therapy. Upscaling experiences from lab phase and pre-production to final production of the cells in GMP environment will be shared. The importance and needs of validated methods and tests for QC, release of the batches as well as submission of the dossier to the authorities will be addressed.

 

Several organizations and companies will present their technology, expertise and solutions within the field of cell therapy, from lab level to manufacturing level. We will learn from their experiences and challenges with automation and QC. The impact of the new legislation for ATMP’s will be approached.
This flanders.bio-Roche Diagnostics partner day will highlight solutions and testimonials that specifically support cell therapy product development and manufacturing.

 

The 3th flanders.bio- Roche Diagnostics PartnerDay 2018 reflects the catalyzing role of Roche Diagnostics and flanders.bio to promote knowledge transfer and to better understand the needs of the players within the life sciences ecosystem in Belgium and beyond.
