Protagen Protein Services: A new level of characterizing protein impurities with MS
In response to current regulatory guidance a Mass Spectrometry (MS) based Host Cell Protein (HCP) detection approach with faster, more accurate and wider-ranging detection is essential. In order to meet the newly prevailing demands Protagen Protein Services (PPS) recently invested in more far-reaching MS capabilities: The new high-performing mass spectrometer ThermoFisher Q Exactive™ HF-X started operational service last month and brings PPS to the next level of reproducible, accurate and sensitive analyses of majorly complex samples for different aspects of translational research and biopharma applications.
The study of biomolecules for potential use as therapeutic agents requires the analysis of highly complex samples. This includes full characterization of complex biotherapeutics as well as comprehensive proteome profiling and quantitation. Developers of biosimilars and new biological entities demand in-depth analysis, high-end data quality and analytical precision without compromising on robustness or speed.
