Automated platform buffer screening for multiple proteins on Big Tuna
The critical process of screening formulation buffers to optimize stability is labor-intensive and time-consuming, which is often a limiting factor in biologics development. The conformational, chemical, and colloidal stability of a protein are strongly influenced by the buffer solution. Altering buffer salts, pH, ionic strength, excipients, and surfactants may increase or decrease the stability of a molecule. To alleviate some of the time requirements in developing a new biologic molecule, a platform buffer screen is typically used to screen common formulation conditions to quickly narrow down optimal buffer conditions. A platform buffer screen analyzes the stability of a new molecule with common buffers, excipients, and surfactants in common pH ranges.

Advanced HDX-MS and Native-MS for Improved Biologic Candidate Selection and Development
Despite substantial efforts utilizing a diverse set of biologic evaluation and high- throughput techniques to select candidates with the best chance of success in preclinical development, the vast majority of biologic drug molecules fail in clinical trials. With most biologic drugs, including gene therapies, failures are realized in late-stage development, after substantial investment has been made in a candidate. Here, we discuss the potential for improving identification of potentially successful biologic drugs and de-risking CMC and clinical designs earlier through strategic application of advanced mass spectrometry, and specifically, how detailed assessment of target engagement using HDX-MS and Native-MS analyses may provide understanding to guide biologic development decisions.

Native Analysis of Monoclonal Antibodies by Microchip Capillary Electrophoresis-ESI-MS
The characterization of intact monoclonal antibodies by mass spectrometry is challenging due to the size and complexity of the molecules. The ability to separate charge variants in a separation that is directly coupled to the mass spectrometer greatly improves the MS analysis by minimizing spectral overlap of similar variants, while also providing a charge variant separation which aids in identification of the species. We have previously demonstrated the ability to do such an analysis using microfluidic capillary electrophoresis – ESI-MS under “near native conditions”. This current work extends that capability by operating under fully native conditions which maintain the folded structure of the molecules both during the CE separation and through the ESI transition into the gas phase.

Blast through your problems: ID inorganic and metal particles with LIBS on Hound
The presence of visible and subvisible particulate matter is a risk throughout the development, packaging, and delivery of biologic drugs. There are many sources of potential particulate contamination. Inherent particles, like protein aggregates, come from the formulation itself. Significant contamination risks can come from intrinsic sources such as metal fragments or filter fibers from processing equipment, or glass chips from primary packaging. Extrinsic sources like hair or clothing fibers are also contamination risks. The list of potential contaminant spans protein, organic, inorganic and metal particulates.

Cross-functional Collaboration Is Key to Diagnostic Test Commercialization
With advances in molecular and genetic technologies and growing patient demand for more personalized laboratory developed tests (LDTs), the demand for such tests is booming. However, even with these favorable conditions, there are significant challenges in bringing new LDTs to market. With so many new tests being introduced, payers have a hard time wading through the noise to identify those that will be beneficial to their business and their patients. To seize upon new business opportunities and meet market demands for new LDTs as well as take full advantage of the new rates for molecular and genetic lab tests, organizations that provide and develop diagnostic lab tests need strong cross-functional interaction between the revenue cycle and the lab.

Knock out same-time protein concentration and quality with Stunner
Sensitive, quick methods for evaluating protein quality prior to extended characterization studies or assay development save time and precious sample. Uncover more about your samples with Stunner, which combines high-speed UV/Vis analysis with dynamic light scattering (DLS) to measure the concentration and quality of your biologics. Stunner has a wide dynamic range, measuring proteins from 0.02−200 mg/mL, and applies a wavelength-specific correction that provides more accurate values. At the same time concentration is measured, Stunner uses DLS to measure the hydrodynamic diameter of your samples and identify whether aggregates might give cause for concern.

Take a snapshot of your protein quality with Uncle
Evaluating the quality of samples prior to downstream analysis is an integral part of protein characterization workflows. There are many reasons to quickly assess the quality of a protein sample, such as comparing batches of purified material, changing formulation conditions, or checking the integrity of frozen samples after thawing. Even after initial protein stability assessments are performed, there may be instances in which sources of physical or chemical stress, such as oxidation or agitation by sample mixing, can lead to protein unfolding or aggregation prior to downstream analysis. Considering all the ways in which protein quality can be affected by long term storage or handling, performing a fast quality check can save time and ensure sample integrity. Uncle can reliably evaluate the stability of your biologics by using two different measurement modes.

Meet Big Tuna: automated, versatile buffer exchange
The critical process of screening formulation buffers to optimize stability is labor intensive and time-consuming, which is often a limiting factor in biologics development. The conformational, chemical, and colloidal stability of a protein are strongly influenced by the buffer solution. Altering buffer salts, pH, ionic strength, excipients, and surfactants may increase or decrease the stability of a molecule. Conventional exchange methods are labor-intensive, prone to inconsistency, and difficult to manage in larger numbers. Existing methods for buffer exchange have various limitations, all of which are exacerbated at higher throughput. Automated buffer exchange systems can enable more uniform sample handling and degrees of process control that are otherwise impractical by manual methods. Big Tuna was developed to address gaps in low-volume, high-throughput buffer exchange.

Using Artificial Intelligence To Determine Patient Response To Immunotherapy
While the current diagnostic strategies for PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors identify some responders well, the majority of patients still need diagnostic approaches that better predict response. PD-L1 IHC remains a valuable tool for predicting patient response, but can be limited by the ability to correctly use the test to interpret the complex underlying biology and response profile. New IHC interpretation methods are capturing this biology and defining better patient selection tests, but the interpretations are complicated and hard for pathologists to implement.

Figure out aggregation early: simultaneous, independent measurements of B22 and kD on Uncle
With the trend in biopharmaceuticals to move towards high concentration therapeutics, devel­oping a well-formulated biologic is more import­ant than ever. After ranking and refining down to a set of highly stable molecules, or honing down to good formulations with measurements like Tm and Tagg, the next critical step is reducing the risk of candidates aggregating at high concen­trations. The diffusion interaction parameter (kD) and the second virial coefficient (B22) are both well-established parameters for predicting the colloidal stability and the aggregation propen­sity of proteins. These measurements may be used to confirm stability and minimize the risk of your molecule interacting with itself. With just minutes needed to collect the data, and experi­ments done at lower concentrations, do it earlier in your process and save time and sample.

Get the whole story: combine Tm and Tagg with sizing and polydispersity on Uncle
Thermal ramp stability measurements (Tm and Tagg) are well-established methods for ranking proteins and formulations for stability. This data is critical for stability determinations, and ensures that researchers are focusing on winning constructs and formulations. While valuable, there is additional information that is not easily gleaned from single-mode instruments. DLS data from Uncle provides even more data on the same set of samples to fill in the missing pieces.

Improving Charge Variant Analysis with Maurice Native Fluorescence
Most post-translational and degradation events affect the biological activity of therapeutic proteins, making charge heterogeneity analysis a critical quality attribute for molecule characterization. Both iCE280 and iCE3 use protein absorption at 280 nm to monitor charge heterogeneity, and now Maurice adds native fluorescence detection to greatly increase cIEF capabilities. Maurice’s native fluorescence detection for cIEF works by measuring the fluorescence emission of tryptophan’s aromatic group. It’s labelfree so you’re not wasting time optimizing protein labeling or dealing with the background noise when label unconjugates from your protein. Baselines are significantly cleaner and less sensitive to ampholyte interference, giving you more options when optimizing your pH gradient.

See What Light Obscuration Misses with Micro-Flow Imaging
Subvisible particles are a critical quality attribute for pharmaceutical products as protein aggregates can elicit an immunogenic response that affects the therapeutic's efficacy.¹Regulatory agencies require a full analysis of any particles present in a therapeutic product, including quantitative measurements of size and count and information on the type of the particles. Compendial methods like Light Obscuration (LO) don’t give you complete profiles due to gaps in their analysis, creating more risk during QC or when you need to file New Drug Applications (NDAs). Micro-Flow Imaging (MFI®) on the MFI 5000 Series system fills in those gaps because it sees particles LO can’t — making it the perfect complement for your regulatory submissions. The system classifies proteins and non-protein particles and gives you direct, image-based detection of size, count and shape for sub-visible particles between 1-300 microns in solution.In this white paper, we’ll highlight the differences between MFI and LO using published literature to help you learn more about how MFI can improve your particle analysis.

Getting the Whole Picture for Immuno-Oncology Therapies
Diagnostics that identify the targets of a drug have been a cornerstone in conveying the value of precision medicine approaches. In the past, patient selection for classic targeted therapeutics was based on a single biomarker using a single assay involving a single methodology (e.g., HercepTest™); however, a lot has changed since the approval of Herceptin® nearly 20 years ago. The first-generation immune checkpoint inhibitors such as YERVOY®, OPDIVO®, KEYTRUDA®, TECENTRIQ®, and BAVENCIO® have transformed the way we approach cancer therapy. Now, the profile of the patient’s immune system and its interaction with the tumor is considered as much as the target of the therapy itself.

Why Declining Returns on R&D Demand Better Workflow Efficiencies
Ask ten people to define innovation and it’s likely that you’ll get ten different answers. Most would agree, though, that it includes some combination of a good ideas, solves a real problem, is executed well, and adds value to the company. But while it may seem intuitive that investments in R&D lead to greater profits, it’s really not all that cut and dried. Not all R&D investments are created equal, and they certainly don’t all produce the same results. For example, R&D activities may not be focused on the right problems, and even when they are, they may not, for a variety of reasons, pan out in the profitability department. And then there’s competition.

IC3D — “Finding your Needle in a Haystack”
In healthcare today, better and faster diagnostics lead to better treatment and outcomes for patients. The challenge in many situations is that the existing tools are simply lacking in terms of speed, sensitivity, and accuracy. This problem is even more pronounced when one needs to “find that small needle in a haystack” and assess rare targets (specific cells, proteins, DNA, RNA, etc.) quickly and accurately in complex patient samples (whole blood, plasma, urine, etc.). A similar problem also persists in other industries such as pharmaceutical manufacturing and food safety, where a rapid test for biological testing (e.g., microbial contamination) would save time, money, and improve safety.
