High-precision, automated peptide mapping of proteins

Instrument Type: UHPLC

The biopharmaceutical industry continues to develop protein-based biotherapeutics in increasing numbers. Due to their complexity and biotechnological production, there are many attributes that need to be analyzed to guarantee their safety and efficacy. Peptide mapping is used to measure several critical quality attributes (CQA) required for the characterization of any biotherapeutic protein. The analysis is used to confirm that the correct sequence has been expressed for the protein and to check for post-translational and chemical modifications.

TN72225: Glycoprotein Monosaccharide Analysis using HPAE-PAD with Manually Prepared Eluent

Instrument Type: IC

This work describes an HPAE-PAD method for monosaccharide composition analysis using manually prepared eluent. Monosaccharide analysis using electrolytically generated eluent has been described before. Here, three commercially available proteins, IgG, fetuin, and alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, were individually subjected to two hydrolysis conditions using 1)HCl, for the amino sugars galactosamine and glucosamine, and 2)TFA, for the neutral sugars mannose, glucose, and galactose. Results for method linearity, robustness, and accuracy are presented here. An ICS-6000 can be used for this application.

A pre-concentration and on-line solid phase extraction setup for the LC-MS analysis of therapeutic protein mixtures

Instrument Type: LCMS

This study shows a fully automated UHPLC setup applying a simple and efficient online solid phase extraction method. Showcase assay performance by using a column cartridge for sample trapping and a Thermo Scientific™ MAbPac™ RP column for separation with water/acetonitrile-based gradients. Leverage the new technologies such as the Thermo Scientific™ Vanquish™ UHPLC platform in combination with the Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ HF Hybrid Quadrupole Orbitrap mass spectrometer.

SMART Digest compared to classic in-solution digestion of rituximab for in-depth peptide mapping characterization

Instrument Type: LCMS

This study compares the newly developed Thermo Scientific™ SMART Digest™ kit to classic in-solution protein digestion methods, focusing on protein sequence coverage and identified post-translational modifications (PTMs), including deamidation, oxidation, and glycosylation. A Thermo Scientific™ Acclaim™ VANQUISH™ C18 column with conventional water/acetonitrile-based gradients and the Thermo Scientific™ Vanquish™ Flex UHPLC system were used for separation in combination with the Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ HF Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap™ mass spectrometer.

Influence of Column Temperature on Reversed-Phase Chromatography of an Intact Antibody

Instrument Type: HPLC (Biocompatible)

The Thermo Scientific Vanquish Flex UHPLC System was used in combination with the MAbPac RP column for the reversed-phase analysis of intact bevacizumab. Column thermostatting strongly influences peak shape and recovery. For runs with column temperature set between 60 and 90 °C, peak width at half height is below 3 seconds for a 30 minutes long gradient. The largest peak area is obtained at 70 °C, and decreases steeply at higher and lower column temperatures. Carry-over decreases at higher temperature. At 70 °C the carry-over is estimated at 0.37%.
