Biologics Analysis Kit for CE-SDS

The Industry’s Favorite Protein Assay

Capillary electrophoresis sodium dodecyl sulfate (CE-SDS) is the only way to obtain automated, quantitative purity data (i.e. glycosylated vs non-glycosylated) on both intact and reduced monoclonal antibodies. It is quantitative, automated and fast.

CE-SDS data acquired by some technologies is regularly manipulated and enhanced. This may mask weaknesses in hardware and chemistries, and more importantly data quality. Only raw, unprocessed data can provide the confidence critical to both you and the regulatory for product submission and commercialization.

Only SCIEX CE technology uses circulating liquid temperature control to maximize data quality preventing the need for any data enhancement and manipulation. Additionally, our technology supports a wider range of method options.

SCIEX CE-SDS, the Gold Standard in Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) Purity Analysis

The Best Technology Provides the Best Impurity Detection

In addition to quantitative data, automation, and full method development flexibility, the following benefits of SCIEX CE-SDS technology provide the critical confidence that you seek in your purity analysis from analytical development to QC.

Trusted Quantitative Data and Advanced Technology

The SCIEX CE-SDS proprietary replaceable gel technology[1], [2], is referenced in USP chapter <129> [3] and the application is recommended by a published intercompany collaboration.[4]

Compliant Raw Data[5]

Patented circulating liquid cooling of the capillary[6] provides reproducible data that requires no enhancements nor manipulations. SCIEX CE-SDS always gives you secure raw data that better quantitates low MW species.[7]

Sensitive Impurity Detection and Quantitation

Modular PDA or laser-induced fluorescence detection provides at least three orders of magnitude of impurity detection – 0.1% and 0.01% respectively.

Short CE-SDS Separation Time

The fastest separation without sacrificing resolution (12 min reduced, 18 min. non-reduced).

The Most Trusted Tools for the CE-SDS Environment

Flexible Configurations Maximize the Way You Work

SCIEX CE-SDS offers detection with PDA or LIF and two validated chemistry kits.

  • The SDS Kit includes components allowing protein sizing
  • The IgG purity kit includes control standard specific for IgG characterization
  • LIF detection provides for increased sensitivity over standard PDA detection

LIF Upgrade

For ultimate sensitivity in impurity detection, upgrade to Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) detection. This upgrade (part # A59494) requires a PA 800 Plus or CESI 8000 Plus. This package consists of a durable solid-state laser and detector that can easily be switched with the PDA detection set-up.

PA 800 Plus Pharmaceutical Analysis System

The PA 800 Plus Pharmaceutical Analysis System is a robust analytical platform that provides characterization of product purity, charge heterogeneity and glycan analysis, to help you with the development and quality control of therapeutic proteins.

Common EZ-CE Cartridge

No need to inventory multiple cartridge types. One EZ-CE cartridge (part # A55625) for Purity, Rapid Charge Variant Analysis, and Fast Glycan Analysis
