Protein Aggregation Monitoring: Bioprocessing Summit 2019
RedShiftBio participated in the Bioprocessing Summit 2019, the last of our conference lineup for 2019. in our hometown of Boston. Over 1400 industry professionals attended a mixture of talks, posters and networking. Our booth was a popular destination, with many visitors stopping by to learn more about the AQS3pro.
A hot topic at the conference was monitoring protein aggregation, the process by which proteins start to bind together under different conditions and formulations. Both upstream and downstream processing can cause aggregation, a common indicator of protein instability, which can result in a therapeutic product being unfit for launch. Delegates wanted to understand how MMS is beneficial for monitoring the onset and presence of aggregation during processing.
Did you know that MMS is one of the only techniques which can directly monitor the formation of aggregates due to its ability to measure intermolecular beta sheet structures?
