Webinar Description:

Timely, effective development of therapeutic proteins and nanoparticles requires comprehensive analytics across a variety of conditions, excipients, and candidate molecules.

A versatile and powerful method for obtaining these analytics is high-throughput dynamic light scattering (HT-DLS), performed in low-volume microwell plates. While DLS is widely used to characterize size and aggregation of particles from nanometers to microns, HT-DLS extends those measurements to cover a diverse array of screening techniques designed to weed out low-performing formulations prior to costly stability studies.

This webinar will cover the use of HT-DLS in evaluating size, aggregation, colloidal stability, and conformational stability of proteins and nanoparticles in the context of screening formulation and process development conditions.

Learning Objectives:

  • How HT-DLS turns standard, labor-intensive DLS into a fast, automated solution for screening a large panel of conditions and/or candidate therapeutics
  • How HT-DLS contributes to biophysical research on the self-assembly and biological interactions of therapeutic nanoparticles
  • How HT-DLS contributes to rapid product development, assessing colloidal stability and conformational stability to optimize the selection of candidate molecules and pre-formulation conditions
  • How HT-DLS contributes to rapid process development, evaluating a matrix of process conditions to optimize parameters such as time, temperature and excipients
