Sensitive, selective, peptide and protein bioanalysis
The rise in large molecule biotherapeutics, which are more complex and challenging to analyze, has increased the demand for peptide bioanalysis using mass spectrometry. High resolution accurate mass orbitrap technology provides ultimate selectivity for the analysis of biotheraputic peptide based products. A unique combination of innovative technologies provides a workflow with superior quantitative accuracy and sensitivity.

The InsuQuant Mass Spectrometric Kit is an affinity purification clean-up kit used to extract endogenous insulin and exogenous insulin analogues from plasma for further analysis in LC-MS. Porous microcolumns are coated with an insulin-specific affinity ligand, targeted to capture insulin and its exogenous analogues. Through repeated pipetting of the matrix, the analyte of interest is put into contact with the antibody-coated surface on the microcolumn.
The streptavidin-biotin complex is one of the strongest non-covalent interactions in biology. Take advantage of this high affinity binding event to capture biotinylated affinity reagents and to ultimately enrich target biomolecules with Thermo Scientific MSIA Streptavidin D.A.R.T.s: the first step in targeted-MS immunoassay development with the MSIA Platform.
Obtain high quality analytical results from protein digests by using Thermo Scientific SMART Digest Kits. A significant advance in sample preparation for biopharmaceutical and protein research, the kits provide fast and simple protein digestion with high reproducibility, high sensitivity, and high levels of data quality in a format that is compatible with automation. SMART Digest kits result in less autolysis than from traditional in-solution trypsin digestion, and usually results in no unspecific cleavage. The digestion enzyme can be use in excess so there’s no need for careful measurement. This means vastly accelerated proteolysis and no enzyme to substrate adjustment.
Remove variability and optimize high throughput laboratory workflows. Thermo Scientific SOLAµ Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) Plates are designed for bioanalytical and clinical research analysts who require clean, reproducible, and robust sample extraction using very low sample and solvent volumes in high throughput workflows. SOLAµ Well Plates achieve this due to the unique and award winning innovative frit-less SPE technology.

Identify, quantify and confirm more peptides rapidly and with confidence using the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer. This benchtop LC-MS/MS system combines quadruple precursor ion selection with high-resolution, accurate-mass (HRAM) Orbitrap detection to deliver exceptional performance and versatility.
Acquire and manage quantitative LC-MS data in a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant environment using Thermo Scientific LCQUAN quantitative software. Designed with extensive customer input, LCQUAN quantitative software is a complete, secure data system that allows regulated laboratories to submit documents, including those with electronic signatures, to the FDA in electronic form.
The Thermo Scientific Watson LIMS Software for Biolanalytical Laboratories, installed in 18 of the top 20 global pharmaceutical organizations, is widely used in leading biotechnology and contract research organizations worldwide. The Watson LIMS facilitates efficient study design and data transfer while streamlining assay validation, bioanalysis, instrument interfacing, sample tracking, results reporting and regulatory compliance.
Troy Voelker of Covance discusses why they chose the Q Exactive systems for HRAM MS bioanalysis of oligonucleotides and other novel therapeutics.
