Applying Rheo-Microscopy to Understand The Rheology of Suspensions & Emulsions

  Overview Rheo-microscopy combines rheological measurements with simultaneous investigation of the material’s microstructure, and how it may evolve in response to external stresses or strain fields. This webinar will showcase the power of rheo-microscopy for an accurate interpretation of rheological data in the context of three case studies, each on a different material and using…

Biophysical Characterization of Antibodies in a Suspension: Solutions for Slurries

  Overview Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is typically used during biopharmaceutical development to characterize a biomolecule through its thermal stability and unfolding profile. Here we demonstrate the suitability of DSC for studies of opaque solutions and slurries. Because of its universal indicator, heat, the technique can be applied to samples with magnetic or polystyrene beads,…

Hyphenation of Thermogravimetric Analyzers with FTIR, MS, and GC-MS Instruments

  Overview Thermogravimetric Analysis, or TGA, is a powerful analytical tool for measuring changes in a sample’s mass as its environmental temperature shifts. When coupled with other instrumental techniques such as mass spectrometers and infrared spectrometers, chemical analysis of the evolved gases is achieved. These hyphenated techniques have a long history in thermal analysis.…

Advanced Characterization of Antibody-Drug Conjugates and Antibody-Fusion Proteins

  Overview: Antibodies are the most rapidly growing form of therapeutic. High-throughput methods of characterization are essential as companies and researchers move to develop new candidates. In this webinar, Dr. Shawn Owen discusses advanced characterization techniques to assess antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and antibody-fusion proteins. For ADCs, the level of payload and site of conjugation are…

Benefits of Microscopy for Interpretation of DSC Thermograms

Benefits of Microscopy for Interpretation of DSC Thermograms DSC thermograms can be complicated and difficult to interpret, sometimes requiring multiple experiments in order to better understand a thermal event. The NEW Microscope Accessory for the Discovery DSC helps to eliminate these issues by allowing the user to easily view the sample while the DSC experiment…

DSC Characterization of Crystalline Structure in Foods and Pharmaceuticals

DSC Characterization of Crystalline Structure in Foods and Pharmaceuticals Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is an analytical technique frequently used to detect and quantify crystalline content of pharmaceuticals, foods, polymers, and many other materials. Appearing as an endothermic peak during heating in a DSC experiment, the temperature and area of the peak can be used to…
