NEW EQUIPEMENT AT QUALITY ASSISTANCE
Quality Assistance recently acquired a 2nd Waters Corporation Single Quadrupole Mass Detector (SQD2). This detector allows for the routine analysis of NCEs, including oligonucleotides and peptides, and provides optimum performance and excellent reproducibility. This detector is controlled by Empower, and is linked to a new UPLC H-Class+, increasing our capacity in liquid chromatography for routine analysis.
Thanks to the acquisition of our 2nd ThermoFisher KingFisher Flex, we have extended our capacity for the automatic process of nucleic acids, proteins or cell samples. The KingFisher Flex system offers rapid and reproducible purification of high-quality DNA, RNA, proteins and cells for various types of applications:
- Quantification of residual host cell DNA or host cell proteins
- Detection of mycoplasma contamination
- Digestion of proteins
- And more.
This new MALDI-TOF system, the Bruker autoflex maX is a matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation (MALDI) with tandem time of flight (TOF/TOF) mass spectrometer. It allows for the analysis of a broad spectrum of molecules and supports a wide range of applications amongst which:
- Molecular weight determination (for mAbs, ADCs, oligonucleotides, peptides and vaccines)
- Glycan profiling
- Peptide mapping
- Analysis of heterogenous compounds (e.g. PEGylated proteins, polymers).
This equipment offers increased speed and power and is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
To extend our capacity for viral vectors, biotherapeutics, vaccines and mRNA-based therapies analytics, Quality Assistance has acquired a 2nd SEC-AF4/MALS system. The DAWN® SEC-MALS System and ECLIPSE® AF4 System are 21 CFR Part 11 compliant and can be then used in a GxP-compliant environment.

The Malvern DLS Zetasizer Ultra Red Label is a combined DLS and ELS system. It allows for:
- The measurement of particle and molecular size
- The analysis of particle concentration for a wide range of material (requiring little or no dilution), with a higher resolution view into the sample’s size distribution.
It can be used for viral vectors. This equipment is available in a BL2 environment at Quality Assistance.
