Analytical ultracentrifugation has been a boon to the field of biophysical characterization for nearly a century. Sedimentation velocity (SV) AUC has emerged as a gold standard for quantifying the loading fraction of gene therapy delivery particles such as adeno-associated viruses (AAV) and liposomes.  

However, boundary analysis of SV-AUC data requires specialized software such as Sedfit* or UltraScan*. Density gradient equilibrium (DGE) AUC is an orthogonal technique that can be conducted in the same Optima AUC instrument as SV-AUC. Moreover, DGE-AUC offers improved sensitivity and sample consumption, along with dramatically simplified analysis. 

In this joint webinar with OriginLab corporation, we will introduce DGE-AUC and demonstrate simple, expert analysis of DGE-AUC data in OriginPro* software. 

In this webinar you will learn: 

  • The advantages of DGE-AUC for your characterization suite 
  • How to start running DGE-AUC experiments on viral vectors like AAV and adenovirus (AdV)
  • Rapid and optimal workflows for analyzing DGE-AUC data in OriginPro* including importing, peak fitting, calculations, and more
