Aging immune cells increase risk for macular degenerationQuantifying AAV critical quality attributes

CQAs of viral vectors for gene therapy include viral capsid titer, ratio of empty and full capsids, and percent aggregate. These are rapidly measured by SEC-MALS, combining size-exclusion chromatography with multi-angle light scattering.
