    BPI Offers A Look Into QbD At Genentech

    Brian Horvath, Scientist and Technical Development Team Leader, Late Stage Cell Culture at Genentech, says the company’s QbD approach has been evolving over the past several years. It is used in a number of ways in the bioprocess areas—cell culture, purification, and formulation—which allows validation that the process as a whole reliably produces product with the desired critical quality attributes. In October, Horvath, will present a case study at the BioProcess International Conference and Exhibition outlining how QbD was used at Genentech during the characterization of a CHO-based monoclonal antibody.
