MOBILion Systems and Protein Metrics join forces to integrate the Byos® Software Suite with High-Resolution Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry and Accelerate Biotherapeutic Characterization Workflows

January 26, 2021

 

Protein Metrics (Cupertino, CA) and MOBILion Systems Inc. (Chadds Ford, PA) announce their strategic partnership to provide data analysis modules for Protein Metrics’ Byos software suite that work exclusively with MOBILion’s High-Resolution Ion Mobility (HRIM) Mass Spectrometry (MS) System. Combining best in class data analysis with the fastest, highest resolution analysis of multiple Critical Quality Attributes to accelerate biotherapeutic drug development and enhance characterization capabilities that affect product quality, safety, and efficacy.

MOBILion’s HRIM product addresses deficiencies in current biopharmaceutical characterization workflows that rely on Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LC- MS). This best-in-class separations technology enables rapid and reproducible molecular and structural characterization of biotherapeutics with two-minute, high- resolution released glycan analysis and five-minute peptide mapping while providing more complete monitoring of Post Translational Modifications (PTMs).

Protein Metrics' Byos Platform enables researchers to move from raw data files to report in just minutes, with the click of a mouse. Designed to manage the burgeoning volume and complexity of analytical data, the platform has established itself as an analytical workhorse for protein characterization in biopharmaceutical laboratories.

The union of both platforms delivers on the promise of eliminating impediments to identifying and characterizing CQAs with the reliability, repeatability and speed required in modern biopharmaceutical organizations developing more complex protein therapeutics.

“Combining the fastest, highest resolution, most reproducible therapeutic protein analysis with simple, automated data analysis and visualization provides our mutual pharmaceutical customers with a streamlined workflow that will help bring safer, more efficacious drugs to market faster.” Said Melissa Sherman, CEO of MOBILion Systems. “The push button, software driven approach of both the sample analysis and data analysis deliver the speed and efficiency our customers seek.”

“The whole is clearly greater than the sum of parts.” remarked Kevin Cronin, Vice President Corporate Development at Protein Metrics, “With over 100 companies worldwide trusting our protein analysis workflows and an industry recognised gold standard in glycan analysis, this partnership enables our client base to rapidly integrate cutting edge platforms with confidence and ease.”

About MOBILion Systems, Inc.
MOBILion Systems is enabling advancements in disease diagnosis and treatment using High-Resolution Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry (HRIM-MS) based on SLIM (Structures for Lossless Ion Manipulation to separate, identify and analyze the most challenging molecules that other instruments fail to detect. MOBILion’s separations technology provides higher resolution, faster analysis and simpler workflows to reveal molecules that are most important in characterizing biologic therapeutics, discovering biomarkers, and improving the accuracy of diagnostic tests. Processing population-scale samples in days versus years, and detecting molecules other instruments miss, make treatments safer and more effective, accelerate disease prediction and diagnosis, and enhance the development of new therapies. The company is headquartered in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania within the Philadelphia biopharmaceutical and medical innovation corridor. Connect with us on LinkedIn or visit https://mobilionsystems.com/
