Planova™ Workshops and Local Seminars

The Planova™ Workshop is an opportunity for Planova™ users to share experiences and to learn the best practices of virus filtration. Event chairs and speakers at this annual event are key industry leaders in biotherapeutics, and their presentations cover topics such as tips for process optimization, validations, regulatory requirements and scaling up to commercial manufacturing. Event attendees include experts in the fields of regulation, process development, pathogen safety, quality and manufacturing. Since the first Planova™ Workshop held in 1998 in Oslo, Norway, this annual event has greatly contributed to raising awareness on viral safety as well as effective use of virus filtration in the manufacturing processes of biotherapeutics.

Planova™ Local Seminars are similar events tailored to the needs of certain local regions, with additions of presentations covering case studies from global and local companies as well as regulatory updates on viral safety specific to the region.
