SOLVE organizes AF4 symposiums/workshops where AF4 users, customers and people interested in the techniques are welcome.

Minisymposium on
Protein Formulation and Characterization
August 29th, Karolinska Institutet Science Park

We’re taking our well-attended minisymposium on Protein Formulation and Characterization to Stockholm and have invited new speakers from leading local pharmaceutical companies and Universities. Save the date; August 29th at KI Science Park in Solna.

Overcome the challenges and explore the latest opportunities in advanced protein formulation and protein characterization. We are creating a forum for ideas, experiences and solutions to support the development and comprehension of new protein therapeutics.

Date and Time:         Wednesday, August 29th 2018, 09:30–14:30
Location:                    Karolinska Institutet Science Park, Solna, Sweden
Registration fee:      €80 (€40 for SwedenBIO members and academia)

Look out for the agenda and more detailed information!

This is a joint event between Wyatt Technology Europe and SOLVE.

Previous events

In March 2018 we organized a minisymposium on Protein Formulation and Characterization at DTU, Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark together with Wyatt Technology Europe. This fully-booked event became a succesful forum for ideas, experiences and solutions to support the development and comprehension of new protein therapeutics.

Speakers at the event included Per-Olof Wahlund from Novo Nordisk, Jens Kvist Madsen from Zealand Pharma, Stefan Ulvenlund from Enza Biotech/Croda, Johan Qvist from Novozymes, Pernille Harris from DTU, Dierk Roessner from Wyatt Technology Europe as well as Sebastian Hansson from SOLVE.

The symposium gave a good overview of present protein characterization methods and which formulation issues are currently being battled. Especially exciting were presentations on the many possible applications of AF4 and light scattering. Furthermore, both presenters and participants were keen on discussing results, problems and possible solutions.

In 2016
we held a workshop with the objective to introduce AF4 as a technique for the analysis of materials such as polymers, biopolymers and nanoparticles. We discussed AF4’s capabilities to separate, detect and characterize materials when coupled to detectors such as MALS, RI, UV, etc. and how the data can explain the behavior of the material. At this workshop we also discussed how the information can be complemented with other characterization techniques such as SEC, DLS, TEM, SAXS, among others.

A great workshop – anyone who is interested in learning about AF4 should attend

The workshop had a good balance between lectures, discussions and practical presentations
