10th Symposium on the Practical Applications of Mass Spectrometry in the Biotechnology Industry
23 Sep 2013 - 26 Sep 2013 - Boston, MA, USA
The focus of this Symposium is the application of mass spectrometry (MS) for product characterization, process monitoring, formulation development and release testing in the pharmaceutical industry. Since mass spectrometry is used routinely for a wide array of applications, the meeting will provide scientists in the industry an opportunity to share their data and learn from their colleagues. Although most of the applications may deal with biopharmaceuticals (proteins, DNA, viral vectors), applications for conventional pharmaceuticals will also be discussed. The Symposium will be held over a period of two and a half days and cover case studies and workshops (industrial, vendor and regulatory) devoted to practical concerns in the use of MS within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
