CBER informed Novartis that the current BPL assay --(b)(4)---- can used as a ‘limit test’ for the detection of residual BPL in the -----(b)(4)----------, but cannot be used as ‘quantitative assay’ due to matrix interference effects. This means that this test is acceptable for release testing, but will not be acceptable for use in validation studies which are intended to establish BPL ----------(b)(4)---------------.
