Wyatt Light Scattering seminar Ghent:
Enhancing protein characterization with Light Scattering. Applications for Biotherapeutic, Biochemistry and Structural Biology proteins

Join us at VIB Campus, Ghent, Belgium!


Light scattering is a powerful technique that is widely used for the characterization of proteins. 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 for this event. Coffee and lunch are provided.


Date: Tuesday, June 6, 2023
Time: 09:00-17:30
Location: VIB Campus, Ghent, Belgium

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.
  • Applications presented by Belgium Wyatt customers
  • Q&A and individual consultations with Wyatt Technology scientists
Who should attend? Attendees should work in one of the following:
  • Scientists which are interested in screening as well as in-depth characterization of proteins
  • People requiring sample quality assessment for structural studies
  • Anyone working on developing Mab’s, Nanobodies or bi-specific antibodies
  • 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.
