Webinar Description:
Biotherapeutic proteins are among the most exciting achievements of modern science. Analysis of a therapeutic protein by cIEF and CE-SDS is critical in establishing a product’s identity, purity, and heterogeneity. Performing these analyses traditionally requires the implementation of both imaged and fixed window capillary electrophoresis (CE) systems.

Maurice, the next-generation CE system, combines both detection schemes into a single instrument, allowing cIEF or CE-SDS data to be generated in a snap. The proprietary ready-to-use cartridge design and the automated clean up procedures dramatically reduces system maintenance while eliminating cross-contamination concerns, making Maurice an attractive option in quality control environment.

In this webinar, our panel of experts will demonstrate the application of Maurice for biopharmaceutical analysis. Topics to be covered include Maurice method optimization for the separation of light chain isoforms by reducing CE-SDS, icIEF method transfer, and CE-SDS method validation for QC testing.
