Accelerating Biosimilar Development Programs using Contract Testing and Manufacturing Organizations

A rapid increase in the number of companies working on the development and registration of biosimilars and the need to get these products to market with speed has lead biosimilar developers to turn to contract research organizations (CROs) when they lack either the internal capability or capacity for conducting certain work. Throughout the biosimilar development pathway, a product sponsor can choose to conduct the work itself or use service contractors. Contractors can be niche providers of a single aspect of…

Platform Purification of Six Biosimilar Molecules Using Amsphere A3 – Protein A Resin

Currently more than 70 biosimilar mAbs (monoclonal antibodies) are under development and multiple originator mAbs are going off-patent in the next 3-4 years. Protein A resin remains the most important workhorse for the purification of monoclonal antibodies. Protein A resin has a high impact on both development and manufacturing cost, in particular during early stage clinical phases. This application note summarizes the key performance parameters for our high capacity protein A resin, Amsphere A3, for 6 biosimilar molecules of which…

Exploring Protein Stability by nanoDSF

nanoDSF determines thermal and chemical protein stability with ultra-high resolution and with unmatched reproducibility. The detection of the intrinsic tryptophan fluorescence enables measurements at close-to-native conditions in any buffer, even in the presence of detergents. nanoDSF is applied in antibody engineering, membrane protein research, formulation and quality control.

Polishing of Monoclonal Antibodies Using Capto™ MMC ImpRes in Bind and Elute Mode

GE Healthcare Life Sciences MAb purification toolbox employs protein A chromatography media (resins) such as MabSelect SuRe™ or MabSelect SuRe LX, in the capture step. After the initial protein A step, there is a range of options for intermediate and polishing purification steps. One option is Capto MMC ImpRes, a new chromatographic medium based on a multimodal cation exchange ligand. This work describes a rapid procedure to establish a robust second step in bind/elute mode for the purification of a…
