About this talk

Full title: Validation of Test Result Equivalence for Alternative BET assays, Including Recombinant Methods Presented by Karen Zink McCullough, Owner, Principal Consultant at MMI Associates, John Duguid, Executive Director, Research & Development at Vericel Corporation, Steven Walfish, Principal Consultant at Statistical Outsourcing Services and Allen L. Burgenson, Global Subject Matter Expert, Testing Solutions at Lonza Both FDA’s 2012 Guidance for Industry and USP <1223> specifically use the term, “equivalence” as a requirement for validating an alternative test. Traditional methods, such as the Limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) assay, are widely accepted and have a proven record of assuring parenteral drug and device safety, but they have limitations, including reagent variability and sustainability concerns. As a result, new methods using a number of innovative platforms, including recombinant technology (rFC and rCR), have emerged. The concept of test result equivalence bridges the gap between old and new technologies, offering cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and reproducible means of endotoxins detection, advancing the industry's ability to ensure continued product quality and patient safety.  This webinar will explore the concepts of equivalence, comparability, and statistical methods used to evaluate them.
