A single software platform providing automated MS data processing for end-to-end MAM lifecycle management

Physiochemical characterization of therapeutic proteins is crucial for product quality control in the
biopharmaceutical industry. Robust software that adheres to QbD principles is needed to rapidly identify
and quantify multi-attribute method (MAM) LC/MS-based spectra.

Genedata Expressionist provides a single software platform for end-to-end MAM lifecycle management
that enables method transfer from early stage molecule assessment to in-process analytics and offers
plugins developed for use in GMP release and QC testing environments. The flexibility of the platform
enables novel processes to test system suitability, detect new and missing peaks, and overcome
limitations in the number of monitored attributes.

Using Genedata Expressionist, we optimized data processing for post-translational modifications
(PTMs) including oxidation, deamidation, glycosylation, and clips. We developed methods for
calculating relative abundances of PTMs that improved data accuracy by including more peaks, charge
states, ion adducts, and peptides with non-specific cleavage. The automated attribute identification and
quantification process saved time by avoiding the need for laborious manual integration. Additional
time-savings were provided by running Genedata Expressionist on a dedicated server, thereby
significantly reducing analysis time for large data sets.
