Automating Sample Prep for LC/MS; Strategies, Benefits and Laboratory Impact
Dr. Darwin Asa, Waters Corporation

This year's Clinical Breakfast Workshop will focus on overcoming common problems with automation and method development for sample preparation in a Clinical, Toxicology, or Pain Management laboratory. Topics to be reviewed include:

  • Strategies for automation of sample preparation: Offline and Online approaches 
  • How not doing good sample prep costs you money
  • Impact and benefits of good sample preparation on LC/MS results
  • Making sample prep as effortless as possible from method development to implementation

Please join us to learn more about how the latest automated sample prep systems are making a difference in how laboratories approach the accurate and efficient measurement of a number of key analytes.

Overcoming Challenges in Antibody Drug Conjugate Analysis by Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry: A Case Study
Featured Speaker:
April Xu, Senior Principle Scientist, BioTherapeutics Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pfizer

Please join the Waters Team for an ASMS breakfast seminar on antibody drug conjugates (ADCs).

As biopharmaceutical organizations explore the use of Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADC) as a delivery mechanism for cancer therapy, one of the significant challenges is analyzing their complex and heterogeneous structure associated with conjugation of drug to antibody, including characterizing drug-to-antibody ratios (DAR), drug load profile, sites of conjugation, etc. 

Waters and Pfizer have partnered to understand the advantages of high-sensitivity LC/MS technologies and informatics workflows that facilitate this complex characterization challenge. Our featured speaker, April Xu of Pfizer, will describe the analytical tools used to address this challenge in Pfizer, and how they were achieved using Waters technologies.

Business and Bagels: Mass Spectrometry & Informatics for Molecular Phenotyping

Featured Speakers:
Robert Tonge Ph.D., Senior Product Manager OMICS Informatics, Waters Corporation, Manchester, UK
Mark Bennett, Americas Sales Manager, Nonlinear Dynamics, Durham, NC, USA

Please join the Waters Team for an ASMS breakfast seminar on High Definition TransOmics (Panomics) Analysis.

Human healthcare is entering an increasingly intelligent era where molecular signatures will aid clinical decision making. Complementary metabolomic/lipidomic and bottom-up proteomic studies can provide a multi-dimensional view of biological processes at the molecular level, but such analyses pose a massive analytical challenge in which thousands of structurally similar analytes are distributed over a wide dynamic range.

Our unique analytical strategy combines three orthogonal techniques to separate, characterize, and quantify the components of complex biological samples.  The combination of these technologies allows the total peak capacity of the analytical system to be increased by an order of magnitude, enabling High Definition TransOmics Analysis:

  • Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) or Ultra Performance Convergence Chromatography (UPC2)
  • Traveling wave Ion Mobility Separation (TW-IMS)
  • High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF)

Alongside instrumentation, software is increasingly important to realize the value in feature-rich experimental data. Progenesis QI and Progenesis QI for proteomics Software, co-developed with Nonlinear Dynamics, delivers highly intuitive, flexible, common workflows for metabolite/lipid and bottom-up protein profiling with comprehensive data visualizations to facilitate robust TransOmics studies on all scales.

Hear about the new software features of Progenesis QI for metabolomics studies and have a chance to preview the latest version of Progenesis QI for proteomics software.
