The BioPhorum approach to the registration of innovative raw materials using quality by design principles, explored the diversity of registration practices for innovative and complex materials and illustrated this through a survey of the current state. This appendix consists of an introduction to Protein A, the process followed for identifying critical material attributes, and controls and principles for registration that would offer future flexibility of supply.

A structured approach for the evaluation, validation and implementation of NAT-based mycoplasma detection methods
Feb 2023 | Deliverable, Deliverables Report, POI - Technology Strategy, Publication, Rapid Methods for Adventitious Agents, Technology Strategy
This paper provides case studies and best practice guidance for validation of an alternative mycoplasma detection assay. It includes an example of completing a user requirement specification (URS) for evaluating an alternative mycoplasma detection assay, validation and implementation. Strategies are also provided to help identify suitable technologies for defined applications. Finally, a framework is given to demonstrate how a validation protocol for an alternative mycoplasma detection assay can be executed to meet the regulatory expectation that the alternative method is equivalent to or better than the current compendial methods.
