Report of the third conference on next-generation sequencing for adventitious virus detection in biologics for humans and animals

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has been proven to address some of the limitations of the current testing methods for adventitious virus detection in biologics. The International Alliance for Biological Standardization (IABS), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Healthcare (EDQM) co-organized the “3rd Conference on Next-generation Sequencing for Adventitious Virus Detection in Biologics for Humans and Animals”, which was held on September 27–28, 2022, in Rockville, Maryland, U.S.A.
