Be Part of the Historic Silver Anniversary for Biological Assays

More than two decades ago, a new technical conference debuted with a straightforward aim: Bring in a community of scientists to discuss the nitty-gritty details behind successful biological assay programs.

Thanks to the enduring quality of our speakers and advisors - and the loyalty of our attendees - Biological Assays: Accelerating Your Development and Validation Practices now returns for the 25th installment of this leading industry event.

Taking place May 4-6, 2015, at the Doubletree by Hilton in Berkeley, CA, this meeting once again promises to bring you the latest techniques and best practices to benchmark your bioassay projects.

The event is hosted by industry insiders Laureen E. Little, Ph.D., Principal Consultant at Quality Services and Sally Seaver, Ph.D., President of Seaver Associates, LLC. Their knowledge of the bioassays field brings attendees an agenda that features a practical balance of educational, technical, statistical, and regulatory discussions.

Early New Topics for 2015

  • In-depth industry case studies that compare bioassays
  • The "life and times" of a bioassay as continues to support a commercial product

Other Anticipated 2015 Highlights:

  • Case studies about validation
  • Use of design of experiments (DOE) during method development.
  • Selection of the right bioassay in development
  • Outlier analysis for underlying data sets
  • Product-specific bioassays
  • Antibody drug conjugate potency assays
  • Potency assays for bispecific entities
  • Case studies on changing bioassays during development or after approval
