Finding Fingerprints of Biosimilars

| Fiona Greer

After finally breaking into the US market, biosimilars have created a real buzz in the industry, but the best practice for demonstrating similarity can be daunting to say the least.

Investigating the deagglomeration profiles of dry powder inhaler formulations

Which equipment can measure how the particle size delivered by a dry powder inhaler (DPI) changes as a function of applied air flow rate, providing a deagglomeration profile which can be used to compare the performance of different formulations in a device and improve drug delivery.

Using Automated Light Scattering Measurements to Support Predictive Protein Formulation Screening

High concentration, low-viscosity, stable therapeutic protein formulations are needed to enable low-volume parental administration. This article explores how a fully automated light scattering system supports the rapid screening of small volume samples in well plates for the rapid identification of suitable biologics during early phase development.

Measurement and characterization of protein-LMW compound interactions

Measurement and characterization of binding interactions between proteins and low-molecular weight (LMW) ligands are a focus of academic research and drug discovery. Isothermal titration calorimetry directly measures heat released or absorbed in a binding event, providing means for studying protein-small molecule interactions in solution without the need for labeling or immobilization. Importantly, ITC is often utilized to characterize differences in entropic and enthalpic contributions to binding of novel ligands.

Assessing Drug Encapsulation Efficiency using Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis

In this application note we describe the use of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) for size and concentration measurements of drug delivery nanoparticles. In addition, by using a fluorescently tagged drug molecule, it was possible to determine how many drug delivery nanoparticles had successfully been loaded with drug molecules.
