High-resolution mass spectrometry for the quantification of biopharmaceuticals


LC-MS-based approaches are increasingly used for the quantification of proteins in biological samples. Traditionally, triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (MS/MS) has been the technology of choice; however, a disadvantage of this approach is that severe interferences are sometimes present in the chromatograms originating from peptides of endogenous proteins following sample digestion. In principle, high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) provides increased selectivity due to the ability to select a smaller mass extraction window for quantification. In this presentation, the results of an exploration of HRMS for the quantitative determination of biopharmaceutical proteins and a comparison to nominal mass LC-MS/MS will be provided, including validation results and application to preclinical trials.
