Protein Aggregation, sometimes referred to as non-native aggregation, is one of the most challenging issues during biopharmaceutical product manufacturing, storage, shipping and administration. There has been increasing evidence of increased immunogenicity due to protein aggregation, hence it is essential to characterize and quantify aggregates in order to develop safe and stable biopharmaceutical products.
In this talk, Dr. Jain discusses about the types, causes and mechanism of protein aggregation, and the need to characterize aggregates effectively. The various analytical techniques which can be utilized to characterize protein aggregates, and the basis of method selection, have also been highlighted, with an emphasis on Size-Exclusion Chromatography, Dynamic Light Scattering and Analytical Ultracentrifugation.
