The Importance of Light Scattering in Biopharmaceutical Formulation Development



  November 15, 2018

  8:00 a.m. PST / 11:00 a.m. EST / 16:00 GMT / 17:00 CET




Protein formulation development and characterization relies heavily on a set of analytical tools and techniques to accurately assess a molecule's stability. This toolbox includes a standard set of tools which has come to us through industry wisdom and experience.

Light scattering is increasingly considered a "standard" tool in the set, and it is a core part of Fujifilm's approach to protein formulation development. We will introduce how various types of light scattering measurements are used in our work and offer several case studies where light scattering data impacted the project direction or was the only way to accurately measure the product.
