Biophysical Methods-based VLP Characterization Service
CD BioSciences is a leading global company with advanced equipment and experienced staff. We are dedicated to helping our customers analyze biophysical parameters such as morphology, size and polydispersity of Virus-like particles (VLPs) on plant platform by biophysical methods.
Biophysical Methods for VLP Characterization
In addition to the detailed compositional analysis of VLPs constructed from plant platforms using biochemical methods, the biophysical parameters of VLPs are obtained by standard laboratory techniques (biophysical methods). Biophysical parameters of VLPs, such as morphology, size and polydispersity, contribute to the study of the efficacy and safety of VLPs vaccines.
Biophysical Methods for characterization of VLPs. (Nooraei S, et al., 2021)
|Biophysical Methods for VLP Characterization|
|TEM (transmission electron microscopy)||TEM is the most commonly used technique for visualizing VLPs and measuring their size. However, errors in particle size can occur due to particle deformation during sample preparation.|
|Cryo-EM (Cryo-electron microscopy)||Cryo-EM uses rapid freezing and insoluble analysis methods during sample preparation that do not result in deformation of VLP particles.|
|AFM (atomic force microscopy)||AFM is a powerful technique for measuring the size and size distribution of VLPs even under ambient conditions. Advantages include the absence of sample preparation and the ability to image individual VLP particles.|
|DLS (dynamic light scattering)||DLS is a non-invasive technique that allows the measurement of heterogeneous samples with a wide size distribution, providing short-term measurements.|
|AF4-MALS (multi-angle light scattering)
ESDMA (electrospray differential analysis)
|AF4-MALS and ESDMA are methods for rapid characterization and quantification of the distribution of multimodal VLPs. Both techniques can detect subtle changes in the size of the internal packing distribution of nucleic acids, other features and the chimeric composition of the VLP surface.|
|HPSEC (high-performance size exclusion chromatography)||In addition to protein separation, HPSEC is also used for molecular weight determination and purity identification of unknowns.|
|CD (Circular dichroism)
UV (UV spectroscopy)
|CD and UV are used to analyze secondary structures.|
