Biomolecular stability analysis for the regulated environment INTRODUCTION TO DIFFERENTIAL SCANNING CALORIMETRY (DSC) WHAT IS DSC? Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a powerful analytical technique which characterizes the thermal stability of proteins and other biomolecules. In solution, these molecules often undergo thermally-induced conformational changes, such as the breaking of non-covalent bonds leading to the unfolding of a protein. These types of structural rearrangement are detectable by DSC as they require the absorption of energy in the form of heat. Even in dilute...

MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software The all-new MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software is available with an optional 21 CFR Part 11 compliance module. This makes both MicroCal PEAQ-DSC systems perfect for QC-type work, including root cause analysis and in-process measurements. Malvern has a wealth of experience working in cGxP environments. We understand the need for easy-to-use analytical systems that enable robust method development and transfer, with the support of 21 CFR Part 11 and also Annex 11 compliance tools and full lifecycle documentation. PEAQ-Compliance enables the control of electronic records via...

MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software A further requirement for analysis in a regulated environment is instrument Performance Qualification (PQ), which includes regular checks on the system to ensure that it is performing within defined acceptance criteria. PEAQ-Performance, part of the MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software, is a new feature specifically designed to simplify these performance checks. Even if 21 CFR Part 11 compliance is not required for your DSC data, it is useful to frequently perform DSC analysis of a protein with a well-characterized DSC thermogram as a validation of instrument performance....

MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software PEAQ-Smart provides new and improved control and data analysis for faster experimental design and implementation. Embedded videos are included to give a visual overview of DSC experimental design and also guide maintenance of the system - these help users of every level proceed with confidence. In addition, a new PEAQ-Smart report designer is included. An SOP-Builder is built-in, to guide and accelerate experimental set-up and provide the capability to perform rescans and downscanning for reversible denaturation studies. PEAQ-Smart provides a wide range of options...

MicroCal PEAQ-DSC software PEAQ-COMPARE Directly compare DSC thermograms, between molecules and between batches DSC has excellent utility as a biophysical and higher order structure (HOS) analysis technique to investigate the comparability of protein samples. This has obvious value when comparing a biosimilar to a reference protein, but it is also very useful in establishing the comparability of batches of the same protein. For example, when substantial changes are made to the manufacturing process, a comparability exercise must be conducted to evaluate the impact of the change(s) on the...
