Intensity fluctuates due to Brownian motion
Protein Aggregation and
Dynamic Light Scattering

Proteins as Biopharmaceuticals
Challenges in
Therapeutic Protein Development
Dynamic Light Scattering
In Conclusion
Protein aggregation and stability is an important aspect of biopharmaceutical development
As biopharma grows, novel methods of characterizing protein aggregation will be needed
DLS is a fast and relatively easy method of characterizing size distributions in a sample
Growth in Biopharmaceuticals
DLS correlates fluctuations of scattered light with particle size
Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS)
30 mg/mL (~3.8 volume%)
Heated in water bath at 55C for 20 min to 120 min
Analyzed for size distribution with DLS

Brownian Motion
DLS setup
Light scatters off particles
Smaller particles: faster Brownian motion
Translational diffusion coefficient
