Process analytical technology (PAT) for biopharmaceuticals and nanomedicines

A new white paper from Wyatt Technology explores real-time multi-angle light scattering (RT-MALS) as a process analytical technology for monitoring and controlling nanomedicines and biopharmaceuticals  production processes. Additionally, it discusses the implementation of light-scattering-based on-line and in-line PAT.

For over three decades, Wyatt’s analytical instrumentation has played a key role in the development of biotherapeutics and nanomedicines. The company’s products are based on dynamic light scattering (DLS) and multi-angle static light scattering (MALS).

While DLS and MALS are already important for both product development and process development via off-line detectors, they lack the ability to provide instantaneous feedback to process developers and manufacturing engineers. Wyatt's ultraDAWN MALS detector provides real-time capabilities for process monitoring: it quantifies product attributes such as molar mass, nanoparticle size and nanoparticle concentration up to 5 times per second. Implementation in-line or on-line with downstream processes generates a major productivity boost, since the data can be used immediately to control or tweak a process.
