There is a need for robust cellular assays and workflows that meet the demands of immunotherapy and cell therapy discovery, engineering, process development, and manufacturing.

Our webinar explores this emerging field with a focus on cell engineering solutions, real-time, reporter-based assays, and automated workflows. These solutions, together with physiological cellular models, are actively being used for screening, characterization, and manufacturing of immunotherapies and cellular therapies. We’ll also review real-world examples of how these assays are being applied.

Key Learning Objectives:
  • Discover how real-time cell analysis can be used to select and optimize chimeric antigen T (CAR-T) cells during discovery, method development, and manufacturing.
  • Understand how to use emerging microplate reading and cellular imaging technologies to perform robust, reliable antibody-dependent and cell-mediated cytotoxicity assays.
  • Explore techniques for gaining unique insights into the critical drivers behind immune cell function—and improving T cell persistence and antitumor potency.
