Most biotherapeutic proteins available on the market today are glycoproteins. The heterogeneous sugar molecules, or glycans, on these proteins affect the potency, stability, and therapeutic safety profiles of these drugs. As a result, biopharmaceutical companies must provide detailed structural information on these glycans when submitting new applications to regulatory authorities and must monitor them throughout the manufacturing process.Since the launch of the GlycoWorks RapiFluor-MS N-Glycan Kit in February of 2015, laboratories worldwide have seen the benefits of simplified sample preparation and achieved unprecedented levels of sensitivity and speed. The combination of Waters and Andrew Alliance technologies takes released N-glycan sample preparation to the next level by making it simpler and more efficient to scale up samples tested with the same enhanced optical and MS sensitivity users have experienced with the RapiFluor-MS labelling reagent. Semi- automation of released N-glycans is now affordable and easily accessible. For more information about the GlycoWorks RapiFluor-MS N-Glycan Kit, visit www.waters.com/glycans .
