The Light Scattering Toolkit for Formulation Studies and Biophysical Characterization: Not Just Aggregation
Presented by Dr. John Champagne, Senior Applications Scientist and Northeast Regional Manager
Tuesday, May 17, 2016 1:00 to 5:00 PM
We review light scattering technology and instrumentation, then present select examples illustrating how Wyatt's light scattering solutions facilitate rapid and effective development of biologics. We will hold a live demo of the DynaPro Plate Reader II automated dynamic light scattering system, optimal for assessing multiple characteristics relevant to formulation screening.

The Light Scattering Toolkit for Characterization and Formulation of Drug Delivery Nanoparticles
Presented by Dr. Wafa Hassouneh, Applications Scientist
Sunday, July 17, 2016 9:00 AM
Light scattering addresses many key analytical challenges in drug nanoparticle R&D, including accurate size distributions, conformation, payload and formulation. We review light scattering fundamentals, then present examples illustrating how Wyatt's unique light scattering instrumentation facilitates rapid and effective development of controlled release vehicles including liposomes, VLPs, polymer-encapsulated nanoparticles and nanogels.

Light Scattering Techniques for Protein, Polymer and Particle Characterization
In these seminars we will discuss the characterization of proteins, polymers and nanoparticles by determination of their size heterogeneity and molecular weight distribution (aggregation and fragmentation), their compositional heterogeneity (modified proteins, membrane proteins, protein complexes), and conformational analysis.
Light scattering detectors can be combined with a variety of sample separation and delivery systems such as Size Exclusion Chromatography and Field Flow Fractionation, or applied for batch methods to provide a comprehensive suite of biophysical characterization tools. The latest offspring which recently joined the Wyatt toolkit, the µDAWN, adds multi-angle light scattering capabilities to UHPLC for enhanced resolution, speed and productivity in absolute molar mass determination.
These seminars give an overview of the basic light scattering principles and introduce the instrumentation.
Based on practical examples we present the most promising approaches towards well-characterized proteins and biopharmaceuticals. We also take a look at the potential to use these techniques in-line and at-line in the production process.
Who should attend?
Scientists in the pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology and medical device industries, and researchers working in academic or governmental labs, who wish to learn how light scattering can help them to comprehensively characterize their peptides and proteins. As this is an introductory seminar, no profound light scattering experience is required.
