Comprehensive Characterization of Monoclonal Antibodies Using a Microfluidic Chip-Q-TOF Platform

March 01, 2010

Accurate, sensitive, and comprehensive characterization of monoclonal antibodies is an absolute necessity to the pharmaceutical and diagnostic industries to meet regulatory requirements and ensure the efficacy and safety of the final product. Microfluidic chip-based high performance liquid chromatography technology interfaced with the mass accuracy of quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry provides the ability to rapidly and efficiently assess the quality of intact monoclonal antibodies, confirm their amino acid sequence, and determine their glycosylation state, while consuming very small amounts of these precious products.
