Practical Applications of Mass Spectrometry in the Biotechnology Industry

The focus of this Symposium is the practical application of mass spectrometry (MS) in the biotechnology industry. Mass spectrometry is a critical analytical technology used in the discovery, development, and commercialization of biopharmaceuticals. This Symposium provides an interactive forum to share experiences, insights, and novel developments between industry, academia, and regulatory agencies worldwide. The goals of the Symposium are to communicate best practices and innovative approaches for mass spectrometry applications in biopharma, as well as promote colleague networking and open discussions, thereby allowing attendees to advance their own projects more efficiently and confidently.

Reasons to Attend Mass Spec:

  • Discuss the importance of MS in early stage development for molecular design and developability studies, including bioactive PTM elucidation, hotspot analysis and biotransformation studies
  • Use of MS in conventional characterization methods such as intact protein analysis, peptide mapping, ion exchange HPLC, capillary electrophoresis, etc.  for elucidating and monitoring product quality attributes, as well as use of MS for process design and the analysis of process-related impurities, such as host cell proteins
  • Introduction of MS in the QC laboratory, validation/transfer/compliance strategy, system suitability/assay acceptance criteria
  • Learn about expectations from regulatory agencies on MS based assays for product characterization, comparability, biosimilarity, release and stability, lifecycle management, gene therapy, new modalities
  • Benchmarking of new technology, and advances in automated data analysis software for MS and best practices for sharing MS results
