Address all your protein characterization challenges with the extensive capabilities of our biopharmaceutical platform solution, BioPharma Finder.

Key overall features:

Workflow-driven experiment creation, method processing, and result review.

Intact protein workflow:
  • Rapid measurement of the intact molecular weight of biotherapeutics for structural confirmation and characterization.
  • Confident deconvoluted molecular weight calculation of proteins in both acidic and native conditions.
  • Target protein sequence matching, identifying n-linked glycosylations and other common modifications using the intact mass.
  • Identification of Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC), and improved detection of low abundance species, using the sliding window algorithm.
  • Batch-to-batch comparison.
Peptide mapping workflow:
  • Confirmation of amino acid sequence with the novel MS2 prediction algorithm, increasing confidence in peptide sequence assignments.
  • Identification of the site and type of expected and unknown PTMs, giving the relative amount of modification in the sample.
  • Disulfide bond mapping.
  • Detection of low level impurities and sequence variants.
  • Sequence alterations in stress samples, including the level of deamidation or oxidation.
  • Error-tolerant searches for unexpected modifications.
  • De novo sequence searches for unknown components.
Top down workflow:
  • Simple workflow for sequencing intact protein molecules using ProSightBP as the core algorithms.
  • Multiple raw file comparison with combined interactive fragmentation coverage maps.
  • Supports multiple modes of fragmentation including CID, HCD, ETD, EThcD, and UVPD, enabling maximum protein coverage.
Multi Attribute Methods (MAM):
  • MAM is an MS-based multi-attribute method for characterization and relative quantification of PTMs in biotherapeutic molecules.
  • MAM uses a combination of high mass accuracy/high resolution MS data generated by Orbitrap technology and automated identification and relative quantification of product quality attributes (PQAs).
  • Dedicated MAM features streamline processes ranging from discovery peptide mapping to critical quality attributes (CQAs) monitoring in GMP environments (Chromeleon).
  • MAM can be used for clone screening, process development, comparability, and stability assessment.
New features:
Intact Analysis:
  • Intact deconvolution workbook allows for simple exchange of information (targeted components and processing method parameters) between BioPharma Finder and Chromeleon.
  • A new intact protein deconvolution workflow in Chromeleon 7.2.9 which provides a new compliant solution for molecule weight determination.
Peptide Mapping Analysis and Multi Attribute Method (MAM):
  • New targeted workflow allows for discovery and monitoring in same software.
  • Fast screening of large data sets for targeted Product Quality Attributes (PQAs).
