About the Event

We are looking forward to seeing you at BPI US West 2024 which takes place March 11–14 in San Diego, California. We’ll be there and are looking forward to welcoming you to Booth 707. On display in our booth will be a lineup of instruments that are accelerating answers in monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, and cell & gene therapy products. 

A Must-See Presentation About our Plate-Based Assay for Rapid Aggregate Screening

During cell line screening and upstream process development of monoclonal antibody production, multitudes of samples are being generated that need to undergo product quality testing. However, with some analytical methods that are traditionally used to measure protein aggregation, it may take hours to obtain results due to longer processing times and lower throughput.

On Wednesday, March 13 at 2:30–3:00 p.m. Roger Connolly—a senior scientist at Lonza Biologics—will discuss how the Valita Aggregation Pure Assay, a rapid fluorescence polarization assay for monoclonal antibody aggregate screening and quantitation, compares to the traditional methods, and demonstrate how it can enable you to prepare and measure a full 96-well plate in as little as 15 minutes
