Rip through formulation prep with Grunt and Junior

Meeting Description:
Formulating biologics is a painful process, typically involving lots of buffer preparation, buffer exchange and sample concentration. Automated buffer exchange by Junior or Grunt provides a robust means to get to key formulation decisions faster and more effectively. Today, you will learn how formulation screening can be performed on the microliter and milliliter scale with Junior and Grunt followed by analytical measurements geared for higher throughput and lower volume characterization.

You will learn how to:

  • Improve your early-stage formulation testing and final formulation optimization
  • Streamline your buffer exchange process to reduce hands-on time
  • Control final volumes and concentrations post exchange
