A Material Characterization Study for AAV Process Development and Tool Selection

Recorded webinar


The potential negative interaction between biologic materials and the containers used in bioprocessing and storage is a major concern. The evaluation and selection of suitable materials are essential. With the growing adoption of adeno-associated virus (AAV) viral vectors in bioprocessing operations, careful analysis of single-use bags and processing materials previously used for monoclonal antibody and recombinant protein bioprocessing is a must.
In this webcast, hosted by Pharma IQ, experts from a materials supplier and contract manufacturing organization will walk through a case study that evaluated single-use bag material interaction and adsorptive relationship with AAV viral vector during storage. A review of the experimental methods, analytical approach, and results will provide a frame of reference to help users better understand the impact and implications material selection has on yield, process, and product loss.
