    Anabiotec: Detailed Detection of Protein Aggregates in Biopharmaceutical Production

    Protein aggregation has become a focus for Belgium-based contract laboratory Anabiotec, as it is a key concern in biopharmaceutical production. This is due not only to the risk associated with changes to a products quality or pharmacokinetics, but most importantly because of the hazard of inducing an unwanted immune response, which is more likely to occur with particles in the subvisible and submicron range.
