Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual 

Characterization of Biotherapeutics 
Enhancing Stability * Preventing Aggregation * Ensuring Comparability

April 1-2, 2015


As new product formats such as antibody-drug conjugates, bispecific antibodies and fusion proteins progress through development, along with the regulatory agencies’ increasing demand for higher accuracy and predictability, there is an urgent need for more accurate and faster characterization tools and strategies that will better inform companies of the structure, function and mechanisms of these new biotherapeutics.

CHI’s Analytical Characterization of Biotherapeutics conference highlights the latest methods and techniques for characterizing novel formats, improving stability and solubility, reducing aggregates and impurities; and determining comparability and biosimilarity.
