Welcome to Bioassays 2022

Bioassays: Scientific Approaches & Regulatory Strategies is a premier bioassay symposium that presents a truly unique opportunity for attendees to interact with key industry thought leaders and discuss topics such as current perspectives, strategies and technologies used for bioassays. This symposium promises to maintain the tradition of high-quality case studies and scientific discussion that enables an additional focus on the technical and regulatory details of each topic. Plan on joining us for what will surely be an informative conference on the current thinking, strategies, lessons learned, development and standardization of methods and technologies used for bioassays.

COVID Protocols

Updated September 30, 2021


CASSS’ first priority in all meetings and events decisions is the safety and welfare of our attendees, exhibitors, partners, and team. In order to enable in-person events to take place with lower risk to participants, effective October 1, 2021, CASSS is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination for admittance to CASSS in-person meetings and events.

This policy is based on guidance and recommendations issued by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities. The COVID-19 vaccines approved by the FDA for emergency use authorization and the vaccines that the FDA has fully approved have been determined to be critical in reducing the community prevalence of COVID-19.

All registrants for CASSS meetings or events will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination onsite before entering the meeting venue.

CASSS will also require registrants to submit an Acknowledgment of Personal Responsibility Form upon registering for a meeting or event and to comply with any state or local mask mandates in place for indoor events until further notice.

CASSS is working on a technology solution that will enable meeting registrants to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination during the online registration process. The availability of that option will be communicated as soon as possible.

Virtual Information
The Bioassays 2022 virtual experience will include live streaming of the program from the comfort of your home or office. More information on the virtual event platform features will be available soon.
