Peptide and Protein Bioanalysis: Infographic

771 views

Published on

Peptides and proteins are not small molecules. Why treat them the same? Analyzing large molecules may be one of the greatest challenges that the bioanalyst faces.

In our infographic we answer:
Why is it harder to quantify large molecules?
Why are biotherapeutics more important than ever?
How can Waters help?

WHYare biotherapeutics more important than ever? HOW can Waters help? Optimize specificity of sample prep Oasis® MAX and WCX SPE µElution Plates help achieve high recovery and low limits of detection for a wide range of endogenous, therapeutic and surrogate peptides. Wide mass range, reliable sensitivity The Xevo® family of tandem quadrupole mass spectrometers delivers high sensitivity at high and low mass, detecting all fragments without compromise, while sensitivity at high m/z enhances specificity. Improved microfluidics for better sensitivity and reduced sample load The ionKey/MS™ System integrates the UPLC analytical separation directly into the source of the mass spectrometer, delivering significant increases in sensitivity, solvent savings, and reductions in sample volume. Increasing sensitivity through LC optimization $$ 10x UP TO IMPROVEMENT IN SENSITIVITY More LC and MS parameters to consider reduces efficiency Complex sample prep means possible loss of analyte STEP 1 STEP 2 STEP 3 STEP 4 Year 201420102005200019951990 204 9940 1.2.801.201.00 1.00 385 568 2.402.001.201.00 MRM of 1 Channel ES+ 1.32e4 Area 365 240 1.251.00 1.25 60 °C 40 °C 400 µL/min 200 µL/min ACN + 0.1% formic acid ACN + 0.1% formic acid + 5% TFE 14237 Temperature Flow rate Mobile phase B composition CAPILLARY VOLTAGE MOBILE PHASE COMPOSITION CHROMATOGRAPHIC PORE SIZE COLUMN TEMP FLOW RATE Analyzing large molecules may be one of the greatest challenges that the bioanalyst faces at the beginning of the 21st century.
