- Malvern Instruments’ 2014 Webinar Program Gets Underway with Light Scattering for Biopharma
Product News: Malvern Instruments’ 2014 Webinar Program Gets Underway with Light Scattering for BiopharmaMalvern Instruments has kicked off another year of its highly popular open-access webinar program and on 21 January the ‘Step into the Light’ webinar offers insight into the use of dynamic light scattering technology to improve the quality of biopharmaceutical data in purity profiles. This is followed on 23 January by ‘Optimization and characterization of nanomaterials for drug delivery applications. Part 1 – Liposomes’ ‘Where do I find source material in light scattering?’ is the topic on 28 January, and the first of this year’s laser diffraction masterclass series goes out live on 30 January.

Accurately identifying impurities and generating purity profiles presents substantial challenges to biopharmaceutical developers, who require the most sensitive analysis methods available. ‘Step into the Light
’ will explore the analytical challenges within biopharmaceutical development, including resolving trace impurities from active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) monomers and predicting aggregation propensity. The presentation will go on to investigate how and why dynamic light scattering systems, such as Malvern’s Zetasizer range, offer the sensitivity required for biopharmaceutical applications.
Amongst Malvern’s range of analytical solutions for biopharmaceutical applications are the market-leading Zetasizer systems which combine dynamic light scattering with electrophoresis capabilities to calculate the defining molecular features of proteins such as size and molecular weight as well as electrophoretic mobility. Zetasizer systems provide the advanced and accurate data needed to tackle development and manufacturing issues, including stability and aggregation.
