Vector Analytics Masterclass 5/6
Liposomes and lipid nanoparticles present a promising alternative to viral delivery vectors for vaccines and therapeutic drugs, with benefits of cell-free production process and capability for rapid upscale. However, a better understanding of their complex structure and behavior in solution is required to control production and to secure designed function and stability on storage.
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is a well-established technique to monitor a number of things:
- phase transitions of lipids
- structural transitions of nucleic acids
- their complexes with cationic lipids
- thermal stability of lipid-based delivery vectors
In this webinar, we will discuss how DSC can be used to explore thermally induced structural transitions of the free mRNA and the mRNA-lipid complexes. Sample complexity makes detailed analysis and data interpretation challenges. We will show how a combination of DSC with dynamic light scattering (DLS) can increase the level of insight and reliability of the data interpretation.
