Exploring Methods for Host Cell Protein Analysis
Listicle Jan 06, 2020 | By Molly Campbell, Science Writer, Technology Networks
Biotherapeutics now represent a large proportion of therapeutics available on the market. The host systems often used to manufacture protein-based biotherapeutics can produce their own endogenous proteins, known as host cell proteins (HCPs), which can ultimately contaminate the product.
Download this list to learn about some of the most commonly used methods for HCP analysis, including:
- Western blot
- Proximity ligation assay
- Mass spectrometry
As biology presents ever-more challenging targets, those in the drug discovery field are pushing ahead with new tools to design or discover drugs that have optimal kinetics. But how familiar are you with the key terms used by scientists performing kinetics-directed drug design and discovery? Here, we have compiled a list of key definitions for your reference.READ MORE
