LBA vs LC-MS: competing technologies at a development crossroad

The first music video played when MTV first launched was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles, which ushered in a new era in the music industry with one technology platform rapidly overtaking another.

Similarly, the Aliri Bioanalysis team is hosting this webinar to discuss why so many sponsors are now reconsidering the use of Ligand-Binding Assays (LBA) for the vast majority of large molecule protein analysis given the many compelling benefits Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS) can provide in terms of speed, cost, and data specificity.

Join bioanalytical experts Shane Karnik, MS, and Matt Hartle, PhD, to learn more about the changing market landscape, considerations for each technology, and when it makes sense to consider LC-MS over LBA for your next large molecule program.

This webinar will also explore:
• advancements in biomarker discovery, validation and quantification using LC-MS technologies, and
• complexities of analyzing transgenic expressed proteins, focusing on the differences between human and endogenous proteins, with a special emphasis on mRNA drugs.

On-demand webinar: Importing and exporting biological samples

Importing and exporting biological samples to and from a US bioanalytical lab requires the US government’s oversight to prevent the transportation of exotic diseases and the supplying of illegal markets. Pharma companies and bioanalytical partners must proactively work together to secure the correct import or export licenses or permits prior to shipment to ensure international samples arrive intact and on time. In this webcast, learn more about how the process is navigated to help you successfully plan your study’s timeline and avoid compromising your samples in transit.
