The 2nd KTN Biopharmaceutical Analytical Group Symposium will present the latest developments in bioanalytical characterisation relating to emerging technologies and will look in detail at some of the analytical challenge areas. As pipelines move forward to include the next generation of biopharmaceutical products, analytics and technologies underpinning them must keep pace to reflect it. This two day meeting will enable the UK biopharmaceutical analytical community to discuss areas of interest, understand the challenges and latest technologies available, while networking with your peers in this field and make new contacts.
The agenda is being finalised and delegates will have the chance to listen to and discuss a wide range of themes including:
Analytics of Emerging Formats/Therapies: Focusing on products such as: ADC's, vaccines, viral vectors, scaffold proteins, cell therapies
Analytical Challenge Areas: Including talks on predictive analytics and process analytics
Technology Showcase: Highlighting relevant case studies and utilising the emerging and evolving analytical techniques from both industry and academic communities
KTN Community Update: There will also be a review and discussion on the latest updates on initiatives relevant to the space

Who Should Attend?
Industrialists and Academics working in the technical areas of analytical development and QC in bioprocessing and biomanufacturing from across the UK and beyond are welcome to attend this event.
The KTN is funded by Innovate UK (formerly Technology Strategy Board) and covers knowledge transfer and the promotion of innovation in business. In the area of human healthcare this includes medical biotechnology, medical technology, regenerative medicine, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical sectors. Within the KTN, the Medical Biotechnology team is dedicated to the priority area of bioprocessing and biopharmaceuticals and also focuses on advancing knowledge transfer for novel therapeutics.
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is the process industry element of the UK High Value Manufacturing Catapult and runs the National Biologics Manufacturing Centre (NBMC). Due to open Spring 2015 in Darlington, the NBMC will support the UK Biologics industry throughout the supply chain.
We can guide you from concept to commercialisation, providing open access assets and expertise to help you develop, prove, prototype and scale up your product or process. We have capability in mammalian, microbial, viral and next generation biologic platforms, including state of the art analytical technologies, and can scale up to 200 litres. We work flexibly with clients in industry and academia and our services can be customised to meet your needs wherever you are in the development process or supply chain, including collaborative R&D projects and fee for service work.
