The Sweet Revolution in Glycan and Antibody Separations

Monoclonal antibodies and other similar biotherapeutics are playing an ever more important role in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancers. It is predicted that within a few years, seven of the top ten pharmaceuticals will be antibodies.

Unfortunately, these biomolecules are extremely hard to characterize, due to an almost infinite number of variants, exacerbated by post translational modifications such as charge variance and aggregation. The number, type and location of glycans adds a further degree of complexity.

We discuss these difficulties and also the current technologies used to maximize glycan separation capabilities and structural elucidation.

Webinar Learning Objectives

  1. Learn about the inherent difficulties in monoclonal antibody characterization
  2. Learn about the latest suite of chromatographic tools available to assist in the characterization
  3. Understand the role of glycosylation in this process, and learn how dedicated chromatography columns can be used to help address the challenge

Maintaining Chain of Custody from Sample Prep to the Auto Sampler

The ability to be able to successfully defend a laboratory’s data during a court case or audit is paramount to the overall mission of any forensic lab. Central to that is maintaining chain-of-custody throughout the analytical workflow, not just during sample collection, transport, and storage. Laboratories go to great lengths to ensure custody and traceability. One of the last frontiers to maintaining sample custody exists within the analytical workflow, specifically, the labeling of analytical samples. For a large percentage of analyses, the samples are extracted for use in chromatographic instruments, and the samples are stored in 2 mL glass vials.
