Advances in Bio-Separations - ChromSoc release Preliminary Programme

publication date: Feb 9, 2015
author/source: The Chromatographic Society

Biologics characterisation from cradle to grave 12th – 13th May 2015 MedImmune Cambridge

ChromSoc LogoComplete characterisation of proteins and peptides is essential across a wide range of industries and applications. The emergence of protein based bio-pharmaceuticals has resulted in increased reliance on the chromatographic and spectrometric techniques used to determine the key quantitative and qualitative attributes of such complex therapeutic entities.

This meeting aims to highlight key advances in the separation and detection techniques used to analyse peptides and proteins, and we are engaging with speakers whose expertise lies in the following broad themes

  • Analytical requirements for characterisation and regulatory filing of proteins / mAbs / ADC’s
  • Chromatographic and mass spectrometric information available at the protein, peptide and amino acid level
  • Advances in Ion Exchange chromatography for the detailed characterisation of charged variants (use of pH v’s buffer gradients etc.)
  • High performance size exclusion chromatography for analysis of fragments and aggregates
  • Coupling Size Exclusion chromatography with MS – the future?
  • Techniques for biosimilar chacterisation
  • High peak capacities for protein sequencing – how fast can we go?
  • Reversed phase chromatographic techniques for protein characterisation
  • Top down versus bottom up protein characterisation
  • Advances in the analysis and characterisation of glycans / glycopeptides
  • Characterisation and analysis of antibody drug conjugates - advances
  • Advances in the analysis of important post translational modifications
  • Affinity chromatography for process monitoring – is speed king?
  • Preparative bio-chromatography – recent advances, biggest challenges
  • Modern solutions for the analysis of oligonucleotides
  • Modern MS techniques in protein characterisation – CID / ETD / ECD and H/D exchange techniques
  • HILIC and HIC chromatography in protein analysis – tomorrow or yesterday
  • High resolution, High Mass accuracy techniques in protein characterisation
