Orthogonal Approaches for the Analysis of Protein Sequence

Ludger Ltd

One of the most important classes of biopharmaceuticals is monoclonal antibodies. They are expressed from living cells, and are consequently subject to complex biochemical pathways. Not all of these routes are fully understood, and many are sensitive to the subtlest of environmental changes. Changes such as these can affect the final biopharmaceutical sequence, structure and post-translational modifications, not to mention any changes that may occur during further purification. This often means that the final product from one batch may be different from the last in another batch. Each batch is a complicated mix of similar molecules, and analysis of the degree of batch-to-batch variation is therefore very important to the establishment of the drug's safety for medicinal use and patient administration.
