March 3, 2017 - We are pleased to announce the release of 21CFR(11)-compliant software for the groundbreaking DynaPro® Plate Reader II. The DynaPro PRII is widely used in the biopharmaceutical industry to characterize aggregation as well as thermal, conformational and colloidal stability of biotherapeutics. With the release of the 21CFR11-compliant Security Pack (SP) in DYNAMICS, labs operating under GLP or GMP regulatory requirements may now take advantage of the DynaPro PRII’s automation to measure dozens, hundreds or even thousands of samples per day. DYNAMICS SP also supports the DynaPro NanoStar cuvette-based DLS detector and the Möbius zeta potential/DLS detector.

March 3, 2017 - Ligand Binding Assays (LBAs) used for large molecule drug development often utilize proteins conjugated to various tags. To ensure that these conjugated protein reagents perform consistently over time and provide high quality data, each lot of conjugated material should be characterized functionally and biophysically. This application note, contributed by Justin Low et al. at Genentech, discusses the advantages of SEC-MALS for this application and the impact of aggregated reagents on assays used to detect anti-drug antibodies.
