The business of bioanalysis: unique panel discussion from expert pharmaceutical and CRO professionals

Bioanalysis Zone showcases season two of the business of bioanalysis; a unique panel discussion series featuring key experts from the pharmaceutical and CRO industries, offering perspectives on current issues in the field of bioanalysis.


Bioanalysis Zone is delighted to showcase season two of the video panel discussion series, the business of bioanalysis, filmed in Barcelona, Spain.


Chaired by Neil Spooner, Senior Editor of Future Science Group’s Bioanalysis journal, this panel discussion focuses on the key business challenges within bioanalysis. The panel comprises leading CRO and pharmaceutical professionals: Chris Beaver (InVentiv Health), John Kolman (QPS), Scott Summerfield (GlaxoSmithKline), Liz Thomas (Alderley Analytical), Tom Verhaeghe (Johnson & Johnson) and Amanda Wilson (AstraZeneca).


Published in three parts exclusively on Bioanalysis Zone, the first video in the series addresses the issue of outsourcing and the priorities that must be considered when making a purchasing decision. Panelists review data from a Bioanalysis Zone outsourcing survey highlighting that 75% of pharmaceutical companies consider cost the most important priority for outsourcing.

In the subsequent videos, the panelists go on to share their perspectives on the current gaps in regulations and what new technologies need to emerge to overcome current issues in bioanalysis.


Naamah Maundrell, Editor of Bioanalysis Zone commented: “We are delighted to present season two of these videos to the community. This exclusive three-part panel discussion enables CROs and pharma to have open conversations about the key issues affecting them in the industry. Panelists raised crucial questions about patient centric sampling and how easy it will be to regulate and also about regulations, suggesting that more flexible guidelines could allow scientists to interpret and apply the regulations to new technologies. We hope you enjoy watching the discussions.”


Bioanalysis Zone would also like to take this opportunity to thank the panelists, as well as the sponsors of this series, without whom the panel event would not be possible; InVentiv Health and QPS.
