Definitive Screening Designs

The ability to quickly develop reliable and robust analytical test methods is an important aspect of navigating the technical path to a successful investigational new drug (IND) submission. Often, an insufficient amount of time is allocated to understanding analytical methods and reference materials and how they perform at in-process test points.

Charge Heterogeneity

Analytical comprehension is particularly challenging for proteins expressed in mammalian cells, which can present extensive charge heterogeneity resulting from variations in post-translational modifications (PTMs). The milieu parameters in any given bioprocess can impact charge heterogeneity, which, when not properly understood and controlled, can cause unwanted batch-to-batch variation in product quality.

Therefore, early detection of charge heterogeneity, using a robust method with good resolution, is an important capability for process development. Some PTMs result in charge differences on the molecule that are likely to alter the protein’s stability or activity.

Countdown to the UK’s leading production line event begins

In light of Nick Peters’, author of the Annual Manufacturing report 2018, comment that “UK manufacturing has come a long way in recent years, as we have seen from their stellar performance in 2017,” it’s no surprise that the PPMA Show is gearing up for its biggest show to date when it returns to the NEC, Birmingham, between 25-27 September 2018.
