The growth of bio–therapeutics has occurred mainly due to the greater success rates within the clinical trials phase of drug development. This means that more drugs are being brought to market. Due to their complex nature, bio-therapeutics have a propensity to change structure which can have a detrimental effect on the efficacy of the drug. As a consequence, peptide mapping is mandated at all stages of the drug development pipeline to ensure integrity. The sample preparation stage of this process is complex, laborious, subject to error and difficult to automate. This webcast details how new technologies can deliver peptide mapping which is:
- Easy for untrained operators
- Easy to automate
Watch the on-demand webinar to learn:
- The challenges faced in peptide mapping and sample preparation
- How new technologies overcome issues with peptide mapping
- How new automated technologies compare to existing practices
