Enhancing biopharma workflows with the power of UV/Vis spectroscopy

15 May 2024


Discover the valuable role ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy can play in quickly and accurately monitoring a drug as it moves through the research & development workflow and enabling quality and regulatory compliance through the manufacturing process.

Secure your place now on this upcoming webinar

All drugs, whether developed by chemical and biological methods must meet stringent quality and regulatory requirements. In this webinar, you will gain insights into how UV-vis spectroscopy supports research & development work and enables quality and regulatory compliance throughout the drug formulation, development, and manufacturing processes.

Nucleic acid sample quality is critical for the success of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques. Spectrophotometric analysis is commonly used to quantify nucleic acid concentrations, examine sample quality, and identify the presence of contaminants such as phenol or chloroform. This session will review qPCR/RT-qPCR and NGS methodologies, present best practices for the determination of sample quantity and quality, as well as offer tips to mitigate downstream issues and ensure compliance with the 21 CFR Part 11 regulation.

Key learnings 

  • Explore the complex biopharma pathway and review opportunities for enhancement with UV-vis spectroscopic technology
  • Improve sampling process efficiency and effectiveness through essential insights into sample contamination
  • Take away key software management recommendations to safeguard data integrity and security and comply with 21 CFR Part 11 requirements
