“How much and How soon is the question” - Implementation of BMV Guideline 2018

Sponsored by: Syngene International Limited

Focused on:

  • Bioanalytical Methods
  • Immunoassays
  • Biologics Development

Date: 3 October


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

A Systematic approach to Regulated Bioanalysis

After 5 years of the draft document under consideration, the USFDA has released the final guidance on Bioanalytical Methods and Validations (BMV) on 24 May 2018. Compared to the 2001 or the 2013 draft guidance, the 2018 version is much more descriptive and takes into consideration the complex nature of immunoassays in support of biologics development. The efforts now should be channelled towards understanding the new requirements, recommendations and incorporating the guideline best practices into laboratory studies as soon as possible.

This webinar will focus on finer points of the guideline, compare critical recommendations with its older version to discuss implementation strategies for large molecule laboratories. This discussion will address key parameters of regulated Bioanalytical (PK/TK) assays for Biologics and Biosimilars in line with USFDA expectations.

Learning from this webinar will not only benefit the bioanalytical scientist but will also add significant value to the bioanalytical quality assurance teams to ensure validation studies are indeed fit for their intended purpose and in alignment with regulatory expectations.
