Simplifying 2D-LC & 2D-LC/MS Automated Workflows Two-dimensional Liquid Chromatography (2D-LC) allows chromatographers to extract more information from their samples than one dimensional chromatography. In addition, a two dimensional analysis will allow the user to change a mobile phase that may not be suitable for a mass spectrometer into a more mass spec amenable composition. We will discuss a unique software and hardware approach to 2D-LC and 2D-LC-MS as well as providing examples of how this technique can provide further elucidation of complex samples. Accelerate ADC characterization with the new DAR Calculator Discover comprehensive protein characterization using the Drug-to-Antibody Ratio (DAR) calculator, a new tool in the MassHunter Bioconfirm software.

Product development in the industrial world can be a long and expensive process. In a competitive market, the window of opportunity for significant revenue can close before a new competitive product could even exit the development cycle. The obvious solution to keeping up in a competitive market is to acquire the product in question, disassemble it, and analyze it. This reverse engineering process can greatly expedite the immediate introduction of competitive products into the marketplace. There are many tools for determining the physical properties of materials that will not be discussed here. The chemical properties can be readily determined by utilizing analytical tools such as gas phase chromatography, atomic absorption spectro¬scopy and many others. Molecular spectroscopy (infrared and Raman) is among the most powerful tools in the reserve engineering process. Each molecule has a unique infrared and Raman signature providing great specificity in the identification process.

The development of technologies for efficient resource usage, energy conversion, transportation, or environmental protection, etc., relies heavily on advances in developing new and improved nanostructures and nanomaterials. Characterization of these materials on length scales down to sub-nanometer, also focusing on structural evolution with the link to the nanomaterial’s ‘performance’, play a crucial role for obtaining detailed knowledge about the relationship between structure, unique property and function in these systems of reduced dimensions. FEI''s solutions can help you to visualize and analyze structure and morphology as well as the chemical composition of those materials, also under a variety of in situ conditions. In this workshop, we will profile use cases in nanostructure characterization - including 2D materials, catalysts, polymers and so on - and take you through different electron microscopy characterization methods and routines that will enable you to get more insight

Optibrium Ltd.
Seamless integration of 2D and 3D SAR to guide multi-parameter optimisation
Where: San Diego Convention Center
Room: San Diego Convention Center, Room 15B
When: Monday, March 14, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
In this hands-on workshop we will explore the combination of 2-dimensional (2D) structure activity relationships (SAR) with 3-dimensional (3D) structure-based design can be used to guide the optimisation of high-quality compounds. Practical examples will illustrate how analyses such as activity cliff detection and matched molecular pair analysis in StarDrop''s unique Card View(TM) can be linked with a 3D view of compound binding to the therapeutic target. This helps to understand and rationalise SAR and guide further improvements in a truly multi-parameter optimisation environment. Furthermore, we will use the SeeSAR software platform to demonstrate how 2D quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models of key absorption, distribution metabolism and excretion (ADME) properties can monitor potential risks while considering strategies for improvement of binding affinity using SeeSAR''s uniquely visual HYDE scoring approach.



Simulations Plus, Inc.
In Silico Design of Beta-Secretase 1 (BACE1) Inhibitors
Where: San Diego Convention Center
Room: San Diego Convention Center, Room 15B
When: Tuesday, March 15, 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
This hands-on workshop will guide attendees through the design of potential BACE1 inhibitors using state-of-the-art ADMET Predictor™ 8.0 software. BACE1 is a classic target for Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disorder. The binding site of BACE1 contains two acidic amino acids (Asp32 and Asp228) where inhibitors that contain a basic moiety can form salt bridge/hydrogen binding interactions. Modification of the ligand’s pKa is important not only for binding to the enzyme but also affects the ligand’s ability to penetrate the brain blood barrier. The initial step in the design phase is to analyze the available data for structure activity relationships (SAR). The attendees will learn how to cluster the compounds according to their maximum common substructure, create R Tables, and use matched molecular pair analysis to extract SAR. Next, a QSAR model that predicts BACE1 enzymatic inhibition will be created. Virtual libraries containing amidine-like functionality will be enumerated. The libraries will then be filtered based on their predicted BACE1 inhibition, solubility, permeability, metabolic stability and other ADMET properties using an ADMET liability scoring function. Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) simulations for the filtered analogs will be the final stage of the process. The course will also illustrate features of the software in general.
