Hear from our experts during TIDES Oligonucleotide & Peptide Therapeutics Digital Week

Learn more about our oligonucleotide analytical development services at TIDES: Oligonucleotide & Peptide Therapeutics Digital Week, 16-19 September 2019.

During TIDES: Oligonucleotide & Peptide Therapeutics 2019 Digital Week, Intertek will present an overview on nucleic acid based therapies and analytical considerations to accelerate product development from early characterisation to late-stage development and commercialisation.  


CMC Considerations for Nucleic Acid Based Therapeutics; from Antisense to mRNA

Monday , September 16, 2019, 9AM EST, 2PM BST 

Thomas Brown, Senior Analyst Oligonucleotide Services, Intertek Pharmaceutical Services

The scope of nucleic acid based therapeutics covers a vast array of types of molecule, ranging in size from approximately 20 nucleotides for antisense oligonucleotides to thousands of nucleotides for mRNA based drug products. Similar analytical techniques can be applied to each type of molecule, for example chromatographic analysis for impurities, but the approach to method design will take into consideration the different types of impurities associated with each type of molecule. Analysis of the associated delivery systems, such as lipid nanoparticles, also forms a key part of drug product testing. This presentation will give an overview and comparison of the analytical considerations for a range of nucleic acid based therapeutics.
