23rd International IPFA/PEI Workshop

From 25 to 26 May 2016, Cerus will be present at the International Plasma Fractionation Association (IPFA) and the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute (PEI) during the 23rd International Workshop on ‘Surveillance and Screening of Blood Borne Pathogens’ which will take place at Lisbon Marriott Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal.

IPFA is the international association representing not-for-profit organisations with an interest in the safety and supply of plasma and plasma products. The Paul-Ehrlich-Institute, as the German Federal Institute for sera and vaccines, conducts extensive scientific research and has regulatory responsibility for the quality, safety and efficacy of drugs and blood products.

Over the years, the IPFA/PEI Workshops have become the leading annual event for discussion and assessment of the infectious disease risks of transfusion, and the progress made on the development and implementation of blood screening technologies. The Workshop now represents an identified body of expertise, which provides direction for emerging applications of these technologies and issues related to blood safety in general.
