Size Exclusion Chromatography is the method of choice for quantification of aggregates in Biotherapeutic samples using a UV detector for determining concentration. However the addition of a light scattering detector capable of both dynamic and static light scattering measurements gives significant benefits. Absolute molecular weight determination with enhanced light scattering response ensures that dimers are clearly identified, through both absolute molecular weight measurement and the enhanced response afforded by the LS detector towards higher molecular weight species. Incorporating dynamic light scattering allows hydrodynamic radius determination providing the possibility of detecting conformational differences. Furthermore, with the advent of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) where non-specific interactions are more likely to cause retention time differences, the light scattering detector provides greater reassurance and confidence in analytical data. Join the Agilent experts for this discussion on the AdvanceBio and Agilent Infinity II approach to this area of application. An open Q&A session on size exclusion in general will follow the talk.
