Protein-based drugs are the fastest growing class of drugs for the treatment of many diseases in humans, ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. Accurate viscosity values of proteins are essential in understanding behavior, designing delivery systems, and accurately determining particle size/hydrodynamic radius.
VROC® powered viscometers deliver accurate and reliable viscosity results that are required to understand behaviors of antibodies and other proteins. By applying a wide range of viscosities and shear rates, you can gain a full length range of insight into your proteins.
Check out all of our application notes separated into major topics:
Working with various protein candidates, buffers, adding excipients, etc, check out the application notes that we have published that are important to formulation.
Administration of a drug is not limited to one method, there are different approaches, formulations, and delivery that all contribute to efficacy. Viscosity of the formulation can impact efficacy in many different ways. Learn more:
Hydrodynamic radius (Rh) is a common parameter used to describe a molecule's size. Understanding the characteristics of proteins can help understand protein behavior as proteins can be quite complex.
Eye drops or opthalmic solutions are a good example of where shear rates are a large contributing factor.
Read our application notes where we touch base on protein stability and how to prolong stability.
RNA Therapies have been used for high-impact drug development. RNA Therapy plays in cellular activity and thus have been an advantage over small and large molecule compound therapies in certain ways.
Antibody therapeutics, an alternative method from RNA Therapeutics, is also equally viable when it comes to development combat methods against serious illnesses. See what factors will be important and what you should understand if you are in the industry.
Cell culture media is a complex fluid composed of nutrients required for cells to grow, proliferate, and differentiate.
