Going Viral: Quantifying Viral Vector
Attributes with Light Scattering

Join us for a webinar on March 24 at 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 17:00 CET

Viral vectors, such as adeno-associated virus (AAV) and lentivirus (LV), are widely used in gene and cell therapies. In order to ensure the safety and efficacy of these emerging therapeutics, it is critical to fully characterize the viral vectors throughout the development process, as well as quantify their critical quality attributes (CQAs) across manufacturing and quality control.

In this webinar, we will discuss how dynamic light scattering (DLS) and multi-angle light scattering combined with size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS) or field-flow fractionation (FFF-MALS) characterize AAV, LV, and other gene delivery vectors. Biophysical properties and attributes covered by these techniques include size, concentration, aggregation, stability and capsid content.


Characterization of Nanotherapeutics by Dynamic Light Scattering

Join us for a webinar on April 21 at 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 17:00 CEST

Drug molecules that are highly effective for treatment, are often not suitable for standard delivery modalities due to hydrophobicity, degradation in the digestive tract or non-specific uptake. Nanoparticles may be designed to overcome these challenges and deliver drugs to their intended target with minimum loss or toxicity.

Simple and robust characterization of therapeutic nanoparticles is essential for the development process. Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is ideal for characterizing sub-micron particles when size and size distributions must be measured quickly, with little available material, and when the specific optical properties of the particles are not well known. PALS analysis determines the particle’s zeta potential, which is essential in reducing toxicity and targeting the desired organ.

This webinar consists of three contiguous segments—presented by three speakers—addressing the fundamentals of DLS and how it is used to characterize drug-delivery nanoparticles
