The task of accurately separating, identifying, and quantitating amino acids in the research, development, and commercialization of food, feed, and biotherapeutic products is challenging. To analyze released amino acids by HPLC or UPLC, Waters provides many solutions that use pre-column derivatization so that amino acids can be analyzed by optical detection.

Antibody purification is routinely performed in biopharmaceutical research. Here, we present a rapid automated Protein A-based antibody purification method using magnetic beads. The robust protocol ensures high antibody recovery. The automation capabilities of Andrew+ allow for the flexibility of processing samples using either single-channel or 8-channel pipetting depending on throughput needs.

Adequate endotoxin testing is invaluable in ensuring quality and safety. LAL assays require cumbersome sample preparation and are easily disturbed by different constituents of the sample. EndoLISA, combining solid-phase format and synthetic rFC, achieves sensitive detection of endotoxin by eliminating interfering components. It can be automated, which accelerates the test with minimal human error.

Monitoring N-Glycosylation is increasingly applied in the development of biopharmaceuticals and the study of diseased cells. Glycan preparation is laborious, with analytical methods lacking sensitivity. GlycoWorks RapiFluor-MS accelerates N-glycan preparation, whilst improving detection sensitivity. Repeatability and traceability are assured when paired with Andrew Alliance automation solutions.

N-glycans affect the safety and efficacy of many therapeutic proteins and are routinely monitored for the quality of biotherapeutics. Here, we present a complementary method for analyzing the complex N-glycans released from human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). The automated method provides a reproducible glycan profile and is suitable for commercial as well as research environments.

Mixed-mode SPE is a sample clean-up technique for LC-MS analysis. Selecting a mixed-mode SPE sorbent can be challenging, requiring a good understanding of the sorbent/analyte chemistry. In addition, it involves accurate and precise pipetting steps. This protocol demonstrates a rapid and robust Andrew+ automated mixed-mode SPE sorbent selection method using the Oasis 2x4 sorbent selection plate.
