Critical Quality Attributes for supply of clinical plasmids for cell and gene therapy development

Webinar On Demand

Plasmid DNA is a critical raw material for establishing the genetic basis for cell & gene therapy medicines. Evolving regulatory guidelines are shifting the definition of quality for raw materials like plasmid DNA as well as promoting earlier use of GMP-grade raw material for cell and gene therapies.

Watch this on-demand webinar where we discuss:

  • Why plasmid quality is critical to patient safety
  • Shifting regulatory guidance suggesting earlier use of GMP-grade raw material
  • Impact to program timeline and cost when transitioning from RUO to GMP-grade raw materials for scale-up and manufacturing
