Free Vendor Seminars

Exhibitors and Sponsors:  A limited number of one-hour Vendor Seminars will be offered on Wednesday and Thursday during lunch and will not compete with the oral or poster sessions. The Vendor Seminars provide opportunities to get acquainted with the latest developments in equipment, media, and services available on the market. The Vendor Seminars are free to symposium registrants. Symposium registrants who wish to sign-up for the free Vendor Seminars must pre-register.

A limited number of vendor seminar time slots are available. Exhibitors who would like to present a Vendor Seminar should contact the ISPPP Exhibit Manager, Ms. Janet Cunningham, at (phone 301-668-6001), and complete and submit the Vendor Seminar Agreement.

Thursday Free Vendor Seminar

July 11, 2019 @ 12:00-1:15 PM


12:00–1:15 PM                  Thursday Free Vendor Seminar Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

Maryland Suite                  "High Impact Data in Size Exclusion Chromatography - The Importance of

“COLUMBIA”                    Instrument Performance in Data Quality"

2nd floor                           (light lunch will be provided)

Must register at the at the Malvern Panalytical exhibit by Thursday @ 11:00 AM


Presenters: Matthew McGann, Malvern Panalytical, Westborough, PA, USA

Hiteshri Makwana, Malvern Panalytical, Malvern, PA, USA

Kyle Williams, Malvern Panalytical, Houston, TX, USA

Size exclusion chromatography (SEC) is now part of a core set of metrices for the evaluation of biopharmaceutical entities. Analysis of sample quality using SEC can aid understanding of the molecule, which could, in the worst case, determine the developmental fate of the biologic. Consequently, the criticality of data quality and integrity in chromatography is a multi-faceted subject that joins together not only the quality and performance of the instrumentation, but also the experimental design, injected sample quality, data interpretation, along with reproducibility and repeatability of the generated results. In this seminar, using practical examples, we will examine the benefits of employing an advanced detection approach over conventional chromatography for the determination of protein aggregation, molecular weight and structure. We will also discuss instrument, sample and data interpretation requirements for generating high quality datasets and how these requirements differ from conventional chromatography. Finally, we will review instrument performance from the perspective of routine maintenance and care, ensuring the reproducibility and repeatability of every dataset generated.
