Aggregation System Improves Analysis of Sub-Visible Particles
Shimadzu Scientific Instrument’s Aggregates Sizer Aggregation Analysis System, provides real-time quantitative evaluation of 100 nm to 10 μm subvisible particle (SVP) aggregates. By screening and identifying aggregation-prone proteins in early-stage drug development, manufacturers can save time and reduce costs. The Aggregates Sizer is capable of identifying SVP particles from invisible to visible in a single measurement in microsample quantities as small as 0.4 mL. It also enables quantitative evaluation of the concentration of those aggregates. In addition, the Aggregates Sizer can execute ongoing measurements in intervals as short as one second, allowing users to evaluate rates of change at intermediate stages during the manufacturing process. A batch cell (5 mL sample capacity) enables observation of aggregation processes as samples are mechanically stimulated.
