Analytical Tools for In-depth Characterization of Cell and Gene Therapies
Agilent Technologies: Analytical Tools for In-depth Characterization of Cell and Gene Therapies
Advancements in immunology and genetic engineering have led to the development of cell and gene therapeutics for treating cancer, autoimmune and infectious diseases. Despite these promising results, developers of these complex “living” therapies continue to face challenges related to scalability and high manufacturing costs. Agilent offers a broad portfolio of cell analysis and genomics solutions to enable comprehensive product characterization to support next generation workflows.
- Key challenges faced by developers of cell and gene therapies, from research to process development and manufacturing QC
- Workflows to characterize target product profile and gain deeper understanding of cell phenotype, function and mechanism of action
- Identify relevant Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) at every stage to ensure therapeutic products meet safety and potency standards
