Characterization of HCP antiserum and detection of HCPs by 2D gel electrophoresis 2015 Poster

Developing and producing recombinant biopharmaceuticals in mammalian cells requires monitoring of HCPs as impurities. Immunoassays are still the method of choice for release testing, for which it is recommended to demonstrate the suitability of antisera in a QM-regulated environment to meet regulatory demands. Demonstrating antisera coverage to and characterization of HCPs as antigens is one most critical point. We present approaches for qualitative detection of HCPs, antisera characterization and comparison of HCP batches using 2D-DIGE, 2D gels and blots. These methods need to be applied…

Advanced Services for Host Cell Protein Analysis Brochure

Advanced Services for Host Cell Protein Analysis Advanced Services for Host Cell Protein Analysis Mass spectrometry services for analysis of HCPs A critical task in biologics manufacturing is the control of processrelated impurities particularly host cell proteins (HCPs), which co-purify with the drug substance and are known for adverse effects (e.g. immunogenicity) during patient treatment. For decades, the method of choice to detect host cell proteins has been an immunoassay based on polyclonal antisera raised against a population of HCPs. However, there are some inevitable risk factors…

GMP compliant Characterization of Therapeutic Antibodies according ICHQ6B Brochure

GMP compliant Characterization of Therapeutic Antibodies according ICHQ6B GMP compliant Characterization of Therapeutic Antibodies according to ICH Guidelines Q6B Characterization of Therapeutic Antibodies 6B H Q FD IC A EMA MP G The complex nature of antibodies as therapeutics presents numerous challenges during development and manufacture. These protein therapeutics are often heterogeneous and therefore complex to characterize. Overall small changes in the protein structure, such as glycosylation, disulfide linkage or presence of some low level impurities (e.g. deamidation/oxidation),…

Analytical Characterization of Physicochemical Properties of Biopharmaceuticals by CE Methods 2014 Poster

The development and production of recombinant biopharmaceuticals is a challenging field
due to their structural complexity. When implementing a manufacturing process for new
biological entities (NBEs) or biosimilars, variations in the protein structure or posttranslational
modifications can occur. Therefore a characterization program is required following the biopharmaceutical guidelines (ICH Q6B).

Monosaccharide profiling by intact mass analysis 2014 Poster

The development and production of recombinant biosimilars is a challenging field due to their structural complexity. When implementing a manufacturing process for biosimilars, differences in the protein structure or post-translational modifications can occur. Therefore a characterization program is required following the biosimilar guidelines. Of great interest are protein glycosylations which can have a great influence on efficacy and safety of the biopharmaceutical. Glycosylations are usually analyzed after isolation from the protein by HPAEC-PAD or HILIC-FLD. Alternatively, LC-ESI-MS…

Pharmazie in unserer Zeit - Hochleistungsanalytik für die Entwicklung von Biosimilars Nov 2012 468ff Scientific Paper

Bei der Entwicklung eines Biosimilars ist die Ähnlichkeitsanalyse zum Originator für den Erfolg entscheidend. Die Anwendung von Hochleistungsanalytik wie zum Beispiel der Protein-Massenspektrometrie liefert auch für strukturell sehr komplexe Biotherapeutika umfangreiche Daten zu mehreren Hundert Qualitätsattributen und damit die Basis der Vergleichbarkeit.

Cosmetic Scienc“Skin-Omics”: Use of Genomics, Proteomics and Lipidomics to Assess Effects of Low Molecular Weight Scleroglucan Scientific Paper

The stratum corneum, representing the outmost layer of the skin, is a vitally important barrier of the body and protects it from various environmental stress factors. In order to maintain its elasticity, suppleness and barrier function, the skin requires optimal water content. In order to guarantee these functions skin moisture is tightly regulated by two factors, namely by the integrity of the water impermeable barrier of the skin itself and by the content of water-binding substances in the stratum corneum.

Full Antibody Characterization 2008 Poster

In recent years the development of biopharmaceuticals hasincreased enormously and also in the next years an immensegrowth is expected. The production of recombinant antibodies is a challenging field of great commercial value. Changes in the proteinstructure or posttranslational modifications can occur and these canhave negative effects on the function of the protein and on thetherapeutic efficacy. Currently very important modifications oftherapeutic antibodies are glycosylation, deamidation or C-terminalLysine cleavage. We have developed methods for the preciseanalysis of these modifications.…
