Innovation In Assays And Analytical Methods Urgently Needed

Industry Continues To Seek Better Bioassays
Biomanufacturers are increasingly demanding better analytical methods development as the industry expands its need to provide better metrics regarding process monitoring, comparability of products, quality, and a number of other critical areas associated with process improvement. In fact, when we surveyed the 450 global subject matter experts and senior participants on our Biotechnology Industry Council to identify the critical factors and trends they expect to be addressed over the coming year, 24% pointed to demands for better analytical methods.
To stay on top of the emerging trends in this important area, we also include this topic in our annual study of biomanufacturing, asking hundreds of global biomanufacturers from around the world to identify which assays are most critical and where improved testing methods are most urgently needed for biomanufacturing.
