Overcoming challenges in cell therapy production: rapid sterility testing

Live30 webinars are thirty-minute presentations designed to update you on the latest innovations, applications, and data in a fast yet interactive format.

In cell therapy production, sterility testing is vital for helping ensure the quality and safety of the final product. Due to the fast-paced nature of the production process and the limited shelf-life of cell therapy products, it is crucial to detect and prevent contamination as early as possible. Rapid sterility testing helps enable the discovery and resolution of potential contamination sources promptly, helping reduce the risk of product loss and unexpected production delays. This not only improves the overall efficiency of the workflow, but also preserves the integrity and effectiveness of the cell therapy product.
