The catastrophe of a global pandemic has only reinforced the critical role that life science research plays in supporting the well-being of humankind. Whether focused specifically on vaccine and antiviral drugs, the characterization of proteins and enzymes, or more broadly on the identification of disease and pathogens, the creativity and intense efforts of researchers keeps us healthy. Sophisticated analytical tools can advance research, speed up product development, and rapidly verify product quality in the life sciences. These tools can aid across areas such as vaccine R&D, biopharmaceutical process and formulation development, and upstream and downstream biopharma QA/QC.
During this webinar, we will demonstrate the use of a two-in-one fluorescence and absorbance spectrometer for highly sensitive and rapid A-TEEM molecular fingerprinting, applied to cell culture media component analysis and vaccine production endpoint QC/QA. We will also discuss how Raman microscopy and Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging (SPR) can be used to characterize cells and tissue, and biomolecular interactions, respectively. Finally, we will show how nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) can reduce the vaccine titer process step from days to minutes, and can also be used to characterize aggregates in biotherapeutic formulations.
