Purity analysis of gene therapy vectors from process development to commercial process
  • Josefina Nilsson - Head of EM Services, Vironova

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) can provide unique insights in the characterization of viral gene delivery platforms

such as AAV or lentivirus. Process development decisions can be speeded up by confirming purity and critical quality attributes. This case study shows how undesired sample characteristics such as:

  • Aggregates
  • Host cell debris and residual DNA
  • Loss of capsid integrity


Easily can be identified and quantified by using automated TEM based image analysis software solutions

Industry 4.0 in Aviation – Digitalization without beta versions
  • Sven Taubert - Head of Corporate Foresight & Market Intelligence, Lufthansa Technik AG

Topics like Digitalization and Industry 4.0 are currently on everyone's minds. New economy companies revolutionizing more and more classical business models. Aviation, like other safety sensitive industries, is working hard to keep up. Unlike services from the big role models out of e.g. Silicon Valley, aerospace products cannot and will not shipped in Beta status. This presentation will show examples how Lufthansa is addressing these challenges.
