CAACB sponsors collaborative research activities and initiatives to promote a better understanding of ways to address adventitious agent contamination.
This project aims to develop a handbook to guide the biotechnology industry in preparing for, and responding to, any future global pandemics.
This project involves performing a comprehensive assessment of viral risk to CHO cells, leveraging the industry’s decades of experience, and using that exercise to establish a framework to guide companies in assessing the viral risks to new and emerging cell lines.
The goal of the project is to assess if, and in what situations, NGS may be appropriate as a replacement for in vivo virus assays.
CAACB Completed Projects
This project has developed a Virus Contamination Risk Assessment and Risk Control handbook as well as performed a risk assessment on a model process.
