Host Cell Protein Analysis

Identification and quantitation of host cell proteins in biopharmaceuticals

Unique mass spectrometry service for Host Cell Protein analysis (HCP)

Alphalyse offers Host Cell Protein analysis for identification and quantification of each individual host cell protein, and quantitation of the total HCP content (ng HCP/mg DS).

Host cell proteins (HCP’s) are the most important process-related impurity in recombinant biopharmaceuticals. HCP’s may effect drug safety and efficacy, and some HCPs may cause adverse effects in patients. HCPs can impact the drug stability by proteolytic and lipase activity.

Alphalyse provides Host Cell Protein analysis by mass spectrometry in the following areas:

Identify Host Cell Protein for bioprocess optimization.. (read more)

  • Identification of HCP in each process sample.
  • Physical properties of each host cell protein (aa sequence, Mw, pI, hydrophobicity).
  • Comparison of host cell proteins between process steps and host cell protein clearance.
