12:20-1:20 pm   Improving Protein and Peptide Separations by U/HPLC

Sponsored by MilliporeSigma

Room:  Nob Hill C/D, floor lower B2 level

Presented by: Hillel Brandes and Cory Muraco, Millipore Sigma

Advancements in column technologies for HPLC separations of biomacromolecules, namely proteins and peptides, have tracked the same course as traditional small molecule applications. Over the last several decades, particle sizes that have come into mainstream use have decreased from 10 micron down to 2 micron or smaller. Likewise, advances in particle technologies from fully porous to core-shell architectures have also been realized for large molecule applications. Little has changed in chemistries available for protein or peptide applications; by far the most popular are the simple alkyl phases, with rare application of alternate chemistries. This presentation will discuss the optimization of particular aspects of particle architecture as they have been developed for the specific application of protein and peptide separations, and demonstrated with actual application examples that clearly illustrate the advantages. Additionally, impacts of instrument configuration will be noted and particular challenges to the chromatography of biotherapeutics will be discussed.

Sponsored by MilliporeSigma

Room:  Nob Hill C/D, floor lower B2 level

Presented by: Dr. Jun Park, Applications Lead, MilliporeSigma, the Life Sciences business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany

Ready, set, go! In this hands-on filtration demonstration, each team uses samples such as syrup, dissolved tablets, and diluted ketchup. The goal: filter 1 mL of these samples into standard HPLC vials as fast as you can. You’ll find, especially for hard-to-filter, viscous or particulate-laden samples, traditional manual filtration can be difficult and challenging. So, we’ll introduce you to the new Samplicity® G2 Filtration System, which enables easy, hands off, vacuum-driven filtration of up to 8 samples at once, using Millex® filters. Participate and enter a drawing to win a free Samplicity® G2 System. Read more at www.emdmillipore.com/samplicity.

12:20-1:20 pm   No Doubts – How Complementary Chromatographic Methods Can Support

a Full Analytical Picture in Pharmaceutical Drug Development

Sponsored by MilliporeSigma

Room:  Nob Hill C/D, floor lower B2 level

Presented by: Petra Lewits and H. Bauer, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany

HPLC is a rapid, accurate and sensitive method for determination of pharmaceutical drugs, degradations and impurity profiling. It is a preferred method for analytical characterization during drug development. This is also due to the fact that a variety of detector types is available that can be easily combined with HPLC along with the variety of column materials (stationary phases) commercially available. Thus, HPLC allows for the development of robust and reliable analytical methods with desired sensitivity and selectivity while also meeting cost effectiveness requirements to the laboratory. The downside of HPLC is that the analytes are detected after leaving the column (stationary phase). Substances of high molecular weight, very unpolar molecules (lipophilic) or highly reactive substances might stick irreversibly on the HPLC column and might consequently not be detected. On the other hand, having a full scope on impurity profile of a drug is a prerequisite for drug development and is essential from a patient safety perspective. A complementary chromatographic method helps to reduce these gaps and supports reliability of analytical data. TLC typically shows all analytes applied also those potentially trapped on a HPLC column. The respective compounds are usually visible in the starting line of the TLC plate and can be even structuarally elucidated using e.g. MS techniques. This makes TLC the perfect complementary “Cross-Check Method” for HPLC in drug development.

12:20-1:20 pm Understanding the Technology of LC Sorbents: Base Particles and Bonding Chemistry

Sponsored by Waters Corporation

Room: Yerba Buena Ballroom Salons 3/4, floor lower B2 level

Presented by: Jonathan E. Turner and Martin Gilar, Waters Corporation

Liquid chromatographers have an overwhelming number of analytical columns from which to choose. Understanding the different attributes of the column stationary phase prior to method development is important for rational column selection. This workshop will focus on understanding the unique attributes of a wide range of different base particle chemistries, morphologies, and bonded phases. We will discuss the differences between hybrid and silica-based particles - both fully porous and solid-core - and their ligand chemistries. We will also discuss the effects of the bonded-phase ligand density and end-capping on a column's chromatographic performance. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE FREE WORKSHOP
