Description

With a focus on practical applications of biophysical techniques, this book links fundamental biophysics to the process of biopharmaceutical development.

• Helps formulation and analytical scientists in pharma and biotech better understand and use biophysical methods
• Chapters organized according to the sequential nature of the drug development process
• Helps formulation, analytical, and bioanalytical scientists in pharma and biotech better understand and usestrengths and limitations of biophysical methods
• Explains how to use biophysical methods, the information obtained, and what needs to be presented in a regulatory filing, assess impact on quality and immunogenicity
• With a focus on practical applications of biophysical techniques, this book links fundamental biophysics to the process of biopharmaceutical development.
