Sedimentation velocity analytical ultracentrifugation (SV-AUC) is the gold standard in aggregation analytics. The importance of SV-AUC results is growing, especially in biosimilarity studies, and also within the development of gene therapy products.   ZentriForce Pharma offers SV-AUC services for a wide sample spectrum.

Gene therapy is a comparatively new trend in biopharmaceutical development. A fixed portfolio of standard analytical approaches has not yet been established. However, it seems obvious that DLS will be among the techniques that are applied for the characterization of gene therapy products. DLS is a fast and sensitive method for sizing species in the sub-micron region.  Our scientists have worked with a wide range of gene therapy products, ranging from small DNA/RNA complexes over adeno-associated viruses and lysosomal formulations up to complete viruses, and are keen to assist you with your specific molecule of interest. For more information about the use of DLS in gene therapy development please follow the link.

Asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation (AF4), coupled with a multiangle laser light scattering detector (MALLS), has the potential to develop into a crucial technique for the evaluation of gene therapy product purity. It is already one of the main assays within several cases of gene therapy product development. Our scientists have already worked with a wide range of gene therapy products, ranging from DNA/RNA complexes over liposomal formulations to complete viruses. This knowledge base helps us to provide you with a tailor designed method for even the most complex samples. Please follow the link for more information about gene therapy related AF4 services.  

AUC is a first principle method. Therefore, the separation mechanism is well understood and extensively described. Please follow the link to a detailed description of AUC theory. 

Even though SV-AUC is with its more than 100 years of history a by far older technique than most others currently used within biopharmaceutical development. It is one of the most complex in regards of data evaluation. We have setup our own supercomputer cluster to be able to offer you several different data evaluation approaches, without the need of your data leaving our premises. We currently offer Sedfit and Ultrascan data evaluations. However, if we see the need to use a different software for your very molecule we have the knowledge base to do so. Please follow the link for more information. 

We are offering a wide range of analytical techniques for the determination of particle size distributions.  The detection of nano particle size distributions (1 nm  – 1 μm) is growing in importance. Especially, since the interest in gene therapy increased. Our scientist are working since more than 10 years on the topic of particle size determination.

Sedimentation Velocity Analytical Ultracentrifugation (SV-AUC) of Other Gene Therapy Products

Sedimentation velocity analytical ultracentrifugation (SV-AUC) has the potential to become one of the most crucial techniques for evaluation of gene therapy product quality. SV-AUC provides data on the ratio of DNA incorporation into virus capsids. Additionally, this technique gains information about the purity of a product in regard to aggregates and fragments. The importance of these findings makes SV-AUC one of the most powerful stability and quality indicating techniques in the field of gene therapy.

Further applications of SV-AUC measurements include collection of data such as molecular weight, UV signal ratio 260 nm / 280 nm, sedimentation coefficient and shape of the observed species.

SV-AUC Services

Our scientists have worked with a wide range of gene therapy products, ranging from DNA/RNA complexes over liposomal formulations to complete viruses. Our knowledge in AUC method development enables us to provide methods featuring both, highest quality results and maximum throughput of up to 14 samples per run.  Consequently, we can assure you to keep the cost of sample analysis as low as possible.

Our ability to perform high resolution and high throughput measurements is owed to our state-of-the art instrumentation. We carry out all measurements on the new Optima Analytical Ultracentrifuge and offer high quality data evaluation approaches, such as Ultrascan. Our computer cluster allows us to perform all data evaluation at our own facility.

The Optima Analytical Ultracentrifuge further enables us to collect two different UV Signals (e.g. 260 and 280 nm), a feature that is especially useful for species characterization of AAV samples.

Sedimentation velocity analytical ultracentrifugation (SV-AUC) is seen as the gold standard for aggregation analytics. The importance of SV-AUC results is growing especially in biosimilarity studies as well as the development of gene therapy products.   ZentriForce Pharma offers SV-AUC services for a wide range of samples.
