Bioanalysis Zone

August: A monthly round up


As the new term begins, Bioanalysis Zone brings you a monthly column providing you with an easy guide to the ‘hot topics’ and highlights covered during August. During the month we have explored: recent developments and the unique challenges of oligonucleotides; what the future could hold for immunogenicity testing; and the key to successful implementation of microsampling.

We have also released our exclusive panel discussion where experts Scott Fountain (Charles River Laboratories), Zamas Lam (QPS), Roger Hayes (MPI Research), Yan Zhang (Bristol-Myers Squibb), Ola Saad (Genentech), and Afshin Safavi (BioAgilytix) discuss ‘the business of bioanalysis’. They focus on investing in emerging bioanalytical technologies, the management and mentoring of staff, and the impact of mergers and acquisitions. Click here to view the videos and to hear more about these areas from both a CRO and pharma point-of-view.
