Protein researchers often spend weeks engineering, expressing and purifying their protein of interest, only to place it on a shelf in a refrigerator until its needed. The rarely asked question is how long will that sample survive those storage conditions? Protein stability is often not considered during a research project, resulting in lost time and money repeating experiments. The straightforward process of assessing a protein for stability in a set of conditions or adjusting the formulation to improve stability can save valuable time and money during research.

In this workshop, attendees will be introduced to a range of typical analytical workflows that can be used to assess protein stability and activity. These workflows will include methods used to investigate physical and structural properties, as well as binding and formulation behaviors of proteins. By examining and understanding these properties of a protein, they can be used to improve the shelf life of a protein and consequently improve quality and robustness of any research performed.

This workshop will also include an introduction and demo of the new Zetasizer Ultra. the most intelligent and flexible instrument in the Zetasizer range. Delivering new technologies for insight into protein sizing and stability analysis. Including automated Multi-Angle Dynamic Light Scattering (MADLS®) for higher resolution and more complete particle size distributions, along with calibration-free particle concentration analysis. With the added benefits of deep learning empowered data quality guidance, the new Zetasizer provides intelligent, confident light scattering analysis.

Who Should Attend?

  • Scientists and researchers looking to gain a further understanding of recent developments in analytical technologies for characterizing protein form and function.
  • Scientists looking to understand the compendium of techniques available to examine the form, function and stability of a protein.
  • Scientists looking to improve their research outcomes by understanding and optimizing the physical properties of their protein samples and improve sample workflows
