Featured Analytical Instruments:
- Maurice™, a capillary electrophoresis platform that automates protein profiling by size or charge. Maurice is incredibly easy to use and features pre-assembled cartridges and onboard sample mixing to minimize hands on work and errors and to increase throughput . Streamline cIEF and CE-SDS method development and data analysis for proteins, monoclonals, ADCs, and vaccines to help get to market and help patients faster.
- Micro-Flow Imaging™ (MFI), provides improved patient safety and efficacy. In addition to particle size and count, MFI offers quantifiable particle morphology. It analyses protein aggregation for stability measurements following stress testing and characterizes SVPs in your formulation to help assess the purification process. Up to 90 samples/run, and up to 150 μL/minute at 900,000 particles/mL.
- Simple Western™ family is made up of automated, capillary based immunoassay platforms that combine the power of CE-SDS or cIEF with the sensitivity of immunodetection, enabling size- and charge-based screening of complex sample types. They are fully automated to maximize reproducibility and throughput and to save development time.
- Milo™, the first automated Single-Cell Western system, analyzes individual cells to demonstrate monoclonality. Single-Cell Westerns can investigate protein expression and identity in just ~1,000 individual cells in a single run with superior sensitivity to detect proteins undetectable in flow cytometry
- Simple Plex™ Assays on Ella, automated ELISAs detect fragments, oligomers, and host cell proteins with low assay CVs. Use it to monitor hospitalized patients with Covid-19 to optimize their treatment. Single and multianalyte cartridge format options are available. Improve consistency and save labor as the total run time for 72 wells run in triplicate is only 75 minutes.

Learn from an analytical scientist about the demand for efficiency in bioprocess workflows that is driving a need for greater improvements in analytical assay performance and instrument automation.
Cell and gene therapies offer significant promise to treat life-threatening diseases, but getting therapies to market quickly and efficiently requires accurate testing of CQAs, including accurate viral vector analysis.
Hear how a variety of innovative analytical tools can support your gene therapy workflow from discovery to quality control and how they can address certain critical quality attributes of your therapeutic.
Antibodies play a critical role in research, diagnostics and therapeutics. Recombinant antibodies offer a wide range of quality attributes, with one key advantage being their amenability to sequence-based editing to meet specific research goals. Learn about the latest developments in recombinant antibody technology including a platform where recombinant antibodies can be rapidly engineered into diverse formats and novel molecules such as immunocytokines or bispecific antibodies.
Natural Killer Cells Or Contaminant? Imaged Based Micro-Flow Imaging (MFI), Sub-Visible Particle Solution, For Cell Therapy
Natural killer (NK) cell therapy is a rapid emerging field with several advantages over chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cells for cancer treatment. Like any biotherapeutic drug, cell-based therapeutics must also undergo tight scrutiny for their critical quality attributes (CQAs). There are different criteria evaluated for drug purity, with the presence of visible and sub-visible particulate matter being one of them. Particulate impurities can affect drug efficacy and stability but can cause undesirable immunogenicity and toxicity when injected. In this webinar, we will showcase Micro-Flow Imaging (MFI) as a sub-visible particle analysis solution to differentiate NK cells and its expansion components with either irradiated K-562 feeder cells or Cloudz™ microspheres.
Dr. Julie Wei discusses AAV empty and full separation using the icIEF method, showcasing how icIEF separates an AAV drug substance that could not be separated using other techniques.
Learn about measuring surface charge of an LNP-based mRNA vaccine for confirmation of LNP identity in a manufacturing setting, and stability assessment for process and formulation development.
In this webinar, we provide concise technical overviews of relevant platforms and specific examples of the roles automated analytical technologies play in the vaccine development workflow.
