The self-association characteristics of molecules in dilute solutions can provide an assessment of stability at an early stage in development. The diffusion interaction parameter (kD) is a measure of the propensity for self-association, but the determination of this parameter using existing methodologies requires several measurements over a concentration series. Here, we show how Taylor Dispersion Analysis can be used to generate a concentration gradient from which the kD can be extracted in a single, low volume measurement, making this an excellent choice of technology for early stability assessment, particularly for biopharmaceuticals.


Markos Trikeriotis studied Chemistry at the University of Crete in Greece, where he also completed his PhD in Biochemistry investigating the use of inorganic materials in drug delivery applications. He then moved to Cornell University, USA as a post-doctoral associate where he studied the applications of metal oxide nanoparticles in lithographic nano-patterning. Markos worked for a biotechnology start-up in Cardiff, UK and then joined the Microviscometry team at Malvern Instruments as an Applications Scientist.
