LC–MS–MS Approach to Aid the Optimization of Biopharmaceutical Immunogenicity Assays
Scientists from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company have developed a novel approach for the simultaneous quantitation of neutralizing antibodies, residual drug, and human Immunoglobulin G (IgG) in immunogenicity assay development using liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS–MS). This work published in Analytical Chemistry presents a new approach that aids the refinement of therapeutic protein neutralizing antibody assays in drug development. More...
Waters introduces the ACQUITY QDa Detector
The future is now separated from the past.  Imagine a lab where all analytical scientists can acquire high-quality mass spectral data. On their own. Within their existing workflows. Across every sample. Without training. Waters imagined just that and introduces the ACQUITY QDa Detector. Click Here
