Small structural differences in monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) can have a big impact on biological activity. Revealing every detail of these molecules is very challenging, but essential in the production and approval of new compounds or biosimilars.
In this webcast, Dr. Paul Jacobs of PharmaFluidics explains the principles and robustness of the micro-chip based pillar array columns. Dr. Koen Sandra of the Research Institute of Chromatography (RIC) demonstrates how micro pillar array columns, in combination with ultraviolet (UV) spectroscopy and high-resolution mass spectrometry (MS), can be a very powerful tool to characterize mAbs and investigate the comparability between originator and biosimilar mAbs and to identify antibody-drug conjugation sites.
