New regulations issued by the FDA on May 14, 1996 substantially changed the way in which biotechnology-derived pharmaceuticals are regulated, placing greater emphasis on the methodologies used to analyze biotechnology-derived polypeptide therapeutics. Fundamentals in Analytical Biotechnology immerses those attending in the practical aspects of characterizing and analyzing therapeutic proteins and presents in an adsorbing manner the fundamental principles and practical uses of these three analytical technologies. Topics extraneous to protein analysis are eliminated, allowing the course to focus on the points of each technology essential in protein characterization. The materials can become almost overwhelming because of the sheer weight of information presented, and yet all points become clear because of the structure of the class and the ability of the instructor to present each topic clearly.

Those attending leave with a clear sense of where each technology is used and how to most effectively implement each technology in developing and using effective, efficient analytical methods for characterizing and analyzing therapeutic proteins.

The Analysis and Characterization of Protein Therapeutics Drugs is a condensed and focused course of instruction on the instrumental analysis and characterization of polypeptides, emphasizing three important instrumental analytical technologies as they relate to the analysis and characterization of polypeptides.

  • Protein Structure and Function. Modifications to proteins that may affect function or potency.
  • Chromatography, including reversed-phase HPLC, ion exchange and other techniques related to protein analysis
  • Capillary Electrophoresis, a technique used for the analysis of charge variants, antibodies and glycosylation
  • Mass Spectrometry, a powerful technique for the analysis and characterization of protein modifications.

This is a three and a half day classroom lecture course focusing on the structure and function of proteins, modifications to proteins that may affect their function, and the fundamental principles and practical use of three major instrumental techniques – Chromatography, especially reversed-phase HPLC (other chromatography techniques are also discussed), capillary electrophoresis and mass spectrometry - in the analysis and characterization of biotechnology-derived polypeptide biopharmaceuticals.
