As well as presenting a technical paper and exhibiting from its range of Zetasizer
light scattering solutions and Viscotek size exclusion chromatography systems,
is sponsoring the 'Protein Aggregation' track at the next Cambridge Healthtech
Institute PepTalk conference (January 11-15, 2010, San Diego, California).
'Protein Aggregation: Understanding and Overcoming Analytic, Formulation, Manufacturing,
and Regulatory Challenges' extends over 13th and 14th January, and covers the
latest trends and challenges with a focus on the understanding and control of
On Thursday, 14 January during the 'Mechanisms of Protein Instability, Aggregation,
and Immunogenicity' session, Malvern specialist, Dr Ulf Nobbmann, will present:
'Predicting Stability of Concentrated Protein Formulations from Dilute Solution
Properties'. He will examine the application of non-invasive light scattering
techniques to predict formulation stability, using zeta potential, melting points,
virial coefficients, and polydispersity measurements of the dilute solution.
On Tuesday, 12 January, Dr Kevin Mattison from Malvern will cover the 'Characterization
of sub-micron particulates using light scattering techniques' as part of the
short course - Characterization and Analysis of Particulates: Methods and Tools.
Conference participants will also have the opportunity to join Malvern Instruments'
protein specialists at the company's exhibition booth (#15) to view and discuss
the latest developments. On show will be Viscotek SEC systems and Malvern's
Zetasizer family of light scattering solutions, including the world leading
Zetasizer Nano, the new Zetasizer APS which automates measurements in industry
standard 96- or 384-well plates, and the Zetasizer Micro V, dedicated to the
size and molecular weight measurement of proteins.
