  • Overview

    This is a hands-on role acting as a site subject matter expert on characterization and management of reference standards. Through coordination of in-house and contract laboratories, the QC Scientist – Protein Characterization coordinates the sourcing, manufacture, testing and release of product reference standards for antibody drug conjugate products and product intermediates, provides technical input and manages the supply of product reference standards, ensuring continuity of supply across a global network of in-house and contract GMP testing laboratories. Responsibilities include development of testing protocols, review of batch records, release of test results and control of inventory.


    This technical subject matter expert in characterization of biomolecules:

    • Develops and maintains the reference standards program in compliance with regulatory guidelines, ensuring that a continuous supply of fully qualified materials are available for GMP release and stability testing.
    • Authors and maintains program level documents, develops specifications and qualification documents required for release.
    • Develops detailed protocols for full characterization, coordinates all testing and compiles comprehensive reports supporting release of reference standards,
    • Identifies source materials (manufactured in-house and externally) for use in filling product reference standards. Provides support for development and release of critical custom laboratory reagents and controls.
    • Tracks inventory and collaborates with Supply Chain, internal and external contract laboratories to ensure continuity of supply. Manages the reference standards inventory throughout the life-cycle with appropriate supporting documentation (e.g. change management).
