Why Timing and CRO Expertise are Critical to the Success of Your Bioanalytical Program

In recent years, pharmaceutical outsourcing of bioanalysis has grown tremendously. Simultaneously, bioanalytical programs have become more complex due to increasing regulatory demands. While a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory guidelines is required to develop a winning bioanalytical strategy, several other challenges, such as strategic timing, are common with outsourcing. Additionally, the regulatory environment of bioanalysis is constantly evolving, and being in compliance and on time remains a big challenge for many Biotech and Pharma professionals.

What’s the best way for companies to accelerate their drug development programs, while not compromising quality?

Be on time for our breakfast talk to learn why timing and CRO expertise can be the difference between success and failure in your bioanalytical strategy. In this event, we will explore the benefit of a local partner with a focus on key recommendations for streamlining bioanalytical programs, beginning with a regulatory perspective (Dr. Marianne Scheel Fjord), followed up by a CRO perspective from Svar Life Science, (Anne Thjømøe, CEO Svar Life Science, Filiz Ibraimi, PhD, Chief Operations Officer, Sabrina Bodevin, PhD Principal Scientist and Malin Molander, Bioanalytical Manager). Along with the planned presentations, attendees will be able to network with representatives from Svar Life Science and other pharma professionals including key opinion leaders.

Key learning objectives:

  • Why a local partner could be beneficial
  • The benefits of working with a CRO Specialist
  • Learn how to overcome challenges of timing in bioanalytical outsourcing
  • Learn how to secure the right level of quality
  • Learn the benefits of working with a CRO Specialist
