In the last decade, a number of studies have successfully demonstrated Raman spectroscopy as an emerging analytical technique for monitoring antibody aggregation, especially in the context of drug development and formulation. Raman spectroscopy is a robust method for investigating protein conformational changes, even in highly concentrated antibody solutions. It is non-destructive, reproducible and can probe samples in an aqueous environment. In this review, we focus on the application and challenges associated with using Raman spectroscopy as a tool to study antibody aggregates. View Full-Text
