Optimization of MS-Compatible Mobile Phases for IEX Separation of Monoclonal Antibodies

The impact of ionic strength, buffer capacity, and pH-response on the retention behavior and peak shape of mAb species characterization is evaluated for IEX-MS. The aim of the present study was to understand the impact of ionic strength, buffer capacity, and pH-response on the retention behavior and peak shape of mAb species.

Optimization of MS-Compatible Mobile Phases for IEX Separation of Monoclonal Antibodies

Characterization of mAbs and related products requires the identification of chromatographic peaks with MS. However, the conventional salt- and pH-gradient elution techniques used in IEX are inherently incompatible with MS. Ammonium acetate- and ammonium carbonate-based mobile phase systems have been recently applied in IEX-MS, but the influence of the eluent composition on peak shape and retention has not been discussed nor studied systematically until now. The aim of the present study was to understand the impact of ionic strength, buffer capacity, and pH-response on the retention behaviour and peak shape of mAb species.
