Spotlight on Proteins: Light Scattering for Enhanced Characterization of Proteins and Antibodies

Join us at June 20th in Basel, Switzerland!


Light scattering is a powerful technique that is widely used for the characterization of proteins and biotherapeutics. It can provide information about the molar mass, size, shape, and interactions of proteins in solution, as well as their aggregation state.

Join Wyatt for the day where you will have a great opportunity to learn the basics of light scattering and dive into application driven discussions. Take a refresher on biophysical characterization using light scattering, discover what’s new, meet your peers and spend some quality time with Wyatt staff. Learn the capabilities of light scattering and how these methods can complement your existing suite of analytical tools.

Registration is free-of-charge for this event. Coffee, refreshments and lunch are provided.

Time: 9:30-16:30 CEST
Location: Basel, Switzerland

Topics covered:
  • Why sample quality matters: Applying Light Scattering tools such as MALS and DLS to ensure sample quality of proteins.
  • Reducing time and increase understanding for downstream processing and purification of proteins using on-line, in-line and off-line approaches.
  • Understanding complex biomolecules: Contrasting SEC-MALS and FFF-MALS for the analysis of proteins.
  • Strategies for characterization of conjugated proteins like membrane proteins and glycosylated proteins.
  • High Throughput analytics for formulation of antibodies, nanobodies and related biotherapeutic proteins.
  • Q&A and individual consultations with Wyatt Technology scientists.
Who should attend?
  • Scientists which are interested in screening as well as in-depth characterization of proteins including colloidal and thermal stability.
  • People requiring sample quality assessment for assays and structural studies
  • Anyone working on developing mAbs, ADCs, nanobodies, bi-specific antibodies or proteins in general
  • Researchers in the field of structural biology and biochemistry
  • Active users of Wyatt light scattering instruments seeking to engage with regional colleagues around similar analytical challenges and wish to learn more about advanced topics related to Wyatt instruments and software
  • Anyone interested in learning more about light scattering and its manifold applications to protein characterization.
