Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural

Analytical Characterisation

Implementing New Technologies and Enhancing Analytical Strategies

March 24-25, 2020


Bioprocessing Summit Europe is excited to announce the launch of a new conference stream dedicated to the Analytical Characterisation of Biotherapeutics. We bring together leading scientists from the biopharmaceutical industry, academia and government to discuss novel characterisation methods, tools and technologies. Join us in Barcelona to improve your analytical strategies across all phases of development and production.
