Mass spectrometry is a valuable technique to fully characterize the products of biotechnology. The technology is used to support the research development of these products to establishing the final product specifications.Discussed in this seminar is the development of the mass spectrometric tools to support the development of an industrial process in biotechnology. The work to support strain development including verification of product, methods to determine no endotoxins had been introduced, characterization of metabolites in fermentation broth, to support of the scale up will be discussed. The final products of biotechnology is then fully characterized using a host of mass spectrometry technologies from new ionization techniques such as atmospheric pressure ionization sources to in-source decay on MALDI TOF instrumentation to ion mobility techniques to identify architectural differences.
