Poster to Highlight Host Cell Protein (HCP) Identification and Quantification Using Mass Spectrometry – ProteoCarta™ HCP Detect
MONTREAL, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Caprion Biosciences Inc. announced today it has presented a poster at the 4th Biologic Manufacturing Asia, Singapore. The poster features mass spectrometry and its role in greater orthogonal characterization of host cell protein impurities (HCP) during manufacturing and process development of biologics and biosimilars. The results demonstrate that extensive fractionation increases HCP coverage and clearance during DS purification.
Caprion Biosciences ProteoCarta HCP Detect offers a comprehensive technology platform which includes an unbiased discovery workflow (LC-MS/MS) and targeted MRM mass spectrometry assay using heavy isotope-labeled standards for quantification accuracy. Our mass spectrometry platform can be used for multiple HCP studies such as characterization of in-process samples and DS, HCP clearance, characterization of HCP from DS expressed in various host expression systems and comparability studies of biosimilars to biologics stated Dr. Laura McIntosh, Vice-President, Translation Research who added: "We will also be presenting additional results at the 3rd Annual Biologics & Biosimilar Congress in Berlin next March.
